A Note From the Santa Monica Teen & Family Therapist
There is an unfulfilled need that is driving a teen’s negative behavior, and my goal is to help you and your teen find more effective ways to address that need. – Sandra
The best time to consult with me is when you have noticed changes in your teen’s behavior — impacting their ability to connect with others and cope with their challenges. As an experienced teen therapist, I can help assess the challenges your adolescent may be experiencing and offer you effective recommendations for solving the problem.
Together, we want to try and understand what is really underlying your teen’s struggle. Is this problem more complex than just an adolescent phase of life issue? Is educational testing indicated? Is social skills coaching a piece of the puzzle? Would parenting support help turn the situation around? Is referral to a medical doctor or other specialist indicated? As a seasoned professional, I can answer these questions.
If your teen is in crisis, I may suggest that we initially meet twice-a-week for about 6-weeks. In this manner, I can do a thorough assessment of the situation. During this time, your family will get an immediate and direct experience of the value I provide–without waiting for long periods of time to decide if I am being helpful.
My goal is to find solutions that will unite your family, rather than assigning blame to anyone.
If your teen or young adult child is struggling socially or emotionally, I can help you to discover the cause and remedy it.
