I really enjoy helping parents reconnect with their kids and am highly sympathetic to the challenges of raising kids in this day and age!  


Kids and teens face real and changing developmental issues and every kid experiences them in slightly different ways. 


One of the main differences between adults and teens (or kids and teens, for that matter) is teens are working out how to be individuals separate from their families.  This is a complicated process for everyone involved, and can take many forms.


I’ve helped parents work successfully with very troubled youth and also reconnect with kids just experiencing some temporary challenges. I am also available and willing to help parents work on their own stuff.
