Teenage years and the grab for independence:
Just the word “teenager” evokes a lot of fear in many people. It is a tumultuous time: experimentation, defiance, rebellion to name just a few of the characteristics of this age. All of it is, of course, a bid for independence, and successfully navigating this leads to an easier adulthood.
How I work with Youth
Like in every other age group, each teenager is unique. I provide a safe environment for kids to express themselves. Once my client learns to trust, we can work on choices they make, examining consequences and finding motivators for healthy choices.
