Got Teens? It is mind-boggling how a teen is so responsible in one moment and the next moment seem like a different person!? Why?

The human brain does not finish developing until around age 25. In addition, there are pressures for a teenager that simply didn’t exist in earlier generations. We are seeing more anxiety, depression, self-injury, anger, acting out and addictive behavior than ever before.

Adolescents are complex, and parents are not provided with an instruction manual. Parents constantly worry about how they grow, develop, and what kind of person they will become. Often, teens don’t want to listen to a caretaker. A counselor can fit in when you simply don’t know how to help and can act as a neutral third-party to help facilitate communication and begin the healing within your family. You don’t have to just endure the teenage years. You can have a great relationship with your kids!
