Family Counseling

For Families

You are not alone in the struggle to reach your teen. They isolate in their room, and you don't know what to say. You might worry about them making the same mistakes you did. You feel like you have the same conversations over and over again, but nothing changes. They react or shut down every time you correct them. You're walking on eggshells to avoid the next big blow up. You try to give advice, but it never seems to go through. You feel like you've read the books and blogs, but applying these techniques has never worked.

In family therapy, we work together with teens and their parents to escape unhealthy cycles and become more connected. We will guide you through difficult conversations and decisions. Through our sessions, we will understand and change your family dynamics. We want to develop cooperation between you and your teen so that you can have a positive relationship. You might actually start enjoying each other's company instead of feeling like you are constantly fighting. We will be there to challenge and support you.

Through counseling, I help families:

Avoid the power and control cycles

Understand one another

Communicate vulnerably

Develop tools for cooperation

Create a plan for disagreements

Overcome unforgiveness

Form connection moments

Expand patience with one another

Let’s Journey Together

Being a teenager is difficult, plain and simple. During this time period, there is so much growth emotionally, mentally, and physically. Because of a process called individuation, teens often push their parents away and rely more on their peers. Parents often feel out of control and completely terrified. This fear is not unwarranted. It might feel like you can't protect them especially with social media, online predators, pornography, and other technology keeping parents disconnected from a teen's online life. I am a teen counselor in Franklin TN who helps young adults escape unhealthy cycles and become more connected.
