Family Counseling Can Help

Parents and troubled teens need skills to be able to live together effectively. Adolescence is a time when children are changing into adults, a process which can challenge and stress the ability of the family to cope.

  • Boundaries. Parents need the skills to set and enforce clear boundaries. Teens need to be able to discover and communicate their own boundaries.
  • Assertiveness. Each family member needs to be able to state their needs in a healthy way.

  • Family Dynamics. Your therapist can help you identify and change dysfunctional family dynamics.
