Can therapy help my child?
Some teenagers need a safe place to confront whatever is challenging them and get extra guidance. Therapy can help your teenager understand the severity of their situation. I can work with them to learn to stop and asses a situation, take a look at their behavior, and make better choices.
Why do parents need to join in therapy for a teenager?
At your teenager’s first appointment I will request that you attend with your teenager. This will give us the chance to start out on the same page and create a plan of action that works best for your family and your teenager. The plan we create for your teenager will be based on his or her needs and goals in therapy.
Some parents choose to continue in therapy with me for a few sessions while I continue to meet with their teenager one-on-one. I can help you understand what your teenager is feeling and going through, and help you create a parenting plan that will work in tandem with your child’s needs.
How long do I (or my family) have to be in therapy?
Every child, individual, and family is unique, and therefore deserves a customized therapy plan. There are situations where a few sessions can provide enough guidance and motivation for change in the entire family. Other times, more time is necessary.
Your treatment plan is developed in consultation with you. During our initial assessment, we will discuss what your goals are and the outcome you are hoping to achieve. From there we develop an action plan on order to move forward in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
Many of my clients choose to come to therapy once a week or every other week. After making progress on one issue in therapy, some of my clients choose to continue in therapy with me to make progress on another issue.
