Teens are at a pivotal moment in their lives.  Faced with physical changes, social pressures, and contemplating life after high school can be overwhelming for both teens and their parents.  While teenagers desire independence and privacy, they also need reassurance that they can be successfully independent in the future. 

Therapy can help alleviate tensions and concerns between parents and their children in this transitional stage. Teenagers have a need for privacy, and yet this can be difficult for concerned parents.  Establishing healthy boundaries and developing a trusting, therapeutic relationship with the therapist is essential to success with teens. Equally important is working with parents in promoting positive relationships at home.
