Adolescent & Teens


Are you and your teen finding it hard to communicate with each other?

 Are they having trouble keeping friends, or being bullied at school? 

Is your teen struggling and you just do not know what to do?


Adolescence is a time of major change, and it can be overwhelming time for them.  This is a time of transition from being a child to gaining more independence and this can be difficult time for parents.  Your teen may be isolating themselves, spending more time with their friends than with the family and they may not speaking to you as much as before. This a normal for most teens, however if you find your teen is acting significantly different and your gut tells you that something is wrong, seeking psychological support for you teen may be wise decision.
