Often, parents will seek talk therapy, play therapy, art therapy, or group therapy for adolescents due to unmanageable behavior problems, school and peer issues,depression, anxiety, divorce, abuse and trauma, family and sibling conflict, or to help them through upsetting life circumstances.
Family therapy or parent consultation is often sought out in order to develop appropriate communication patterns, understand each other’s motivations, learn effective problem-solving techniques and learn alternate behavior management and/or parenting techniques.
Couples seek help when their relationships are feeling rocky, when there has been an infidelity, or when you just cannot see eye to eye. In couples therapy the relationship is my patient and I work with the couple with that in mind. I always say the sooner the better, why wait until things are "really bad" to get help!
