Angry arguments may be disrupting the whole family. You may feel shut out. Worst case scenarios may run through your mind, and you're scared your kid is ruining his or her life or will be seriously hurt.
Adolescence can be a rough and messy time for kids and their families. Few people get just how embarrassed and alone you feel. Or how easy it is to feel like a failure as a parent. You may even feel resentful that your kid is putting you through this.
I know how you feel, I've been there. My husband and I raised two kids and know how hard it can be. I can help. With over 30 years experience, I'm an expert on working with families and adolescents. I've taught classes at Sonoma State University on adolescent development and teen problems.
My training as a marriage family and adolescent therapist began at SSU in 1979 where I earned my Master’s degree in psychology. I received my Marriage and Family Therapist license in 1981 and continued to train extensively in psychoanalytic and relational theory. My background in the performing arts lends a gusto and sense of humor to my work as a therapist.
I'd be happy to talk with you about your unique situation.
