As a parent of a child or adolescent, you have likely experienced both the deep joy of seeing your child grow and the insecurity of not knowing what they need or how to meet that need. Often it is this struggle to communicate needs between child and parent that plays a large part in conflict and difficulty.
Have you noticed…
• Marked change in school performance?
• Inability to cope with problems and daily activities?
• Excessive amount of time spent online or playing video games?
• Lonely and depressed feelings; shown by sustained, prolonged negative mood and attitude, often accompanied by poor appetite, difficulty sleeping or thoughts of death?
• Frequent outbursts of anger, aggression?
• Self-injury or self-destructive behavior?
• Have doubts about relationship with God and/or desire a better connection?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may find counseling helpful to you and your child.
Many youth would not choose to come to counseling on their own, therefore I use a variety of approaches, such as traditional talk therapy and activity therapy in hopes to engage your child where they are at.
