South Orange County Family Counseling and Therapy
I help families work through a multitude of concerns. As children become pre-teens, teens, and then young adults, the stressors in the family change. I offer south Orange County family counseling to help families thru a variety of challenges.Be it early attitude problems, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol, sexual activity, or the competing and often overwhelming demands of school, sports, and social life, parents and their teens often need mediation. Finding a balance between parents who want to keep their teens safe and adolescents who are ready to spread their wings can be a precarious task.
Many are finding that post-college, or after initially leaving the nest, adult children are returning home. Young adults often need more financial and emotional support today than they have in past generations. I assist young adults in acquiring the independence both they and their parents desire.
Parenting is a dynamic and evolving force. What works for a two-year-old does not work for a thirteen-year-old. Parenting from infancy to adulthood requires flexibility, growth, and, finally, letting go. I would love to help and to travel through this process with you.
