Adolescent Psychotherapist & Psychoanalyst
Adolescents & teens are all about independence, mastery of achievements, and becoming their own person. This developmental stage is often challenging but not usually insurmountable. Patience is the key for parents of a teenager. Therapy can be wonderfully beneficial during this time of change in life from being dependent upon parents to a time of depending upon oneself. Everything from driving oneself to their therapy to figuring out life’s plans, can be aided by talking to a therapist.
Psychoanalytic thinking is of great help when working with teens and helping parents as their teenager is in therapy. Teenagers have to be assured that their participation includes confidentiality.
