As a parent you are constantly worrying about your child. Perhaps you have noticed they are not socializing anymore. Maybe you noticed they are more irritable. You aren’t sure if this is “normal teen behavior.” Moreover, you fear pushing them into therapy may make things worse. Perhaps you’ve tried other forms of therapy and nothing seems to be helping. You know something needs to change, but you don’t know what to do.
Hi I’m Lianna. I help teens and young adults stop self-sabotaging behaviors and develop coping skills so they can manage uncomfortable situation and emotions OUTSIDE of session, not just 1 hr per week.

As a parent, you often worry about how to help your teen and feel like no matter what you do it was the wrong decision. You want to scream and set limits, but wonder if you are making things worse. You stay up all night worrying about the what the following day will bring…will she go to school? Will he be safe?
Hi I’m Elaine. I help parents repair trust with teens and learn to communicate effectively so they form stronger family bongs that lead to their teen making safer choices and being more open!
