Will you work with my child or teen?
The simplest answer is I don’t work with children or teens without also working with parents. Family dynamics and patterns are complex, so parents find it useful to consult someone with specialized training in family systems. In doing so, parents can better understand their role as the family leader when a child is struggling.
If the parental system changes, the family system can change too. So I work most often with the family leaders when there is a concern regarding a child or teen. If parents can let go of diagnosis as the only way to think about the problem their child is having, then one can consider the impact family processes have on emotions and behavior.
I either work primarily with the family leaders. Or when there is a child/teen who is asking to speak to a counselor, I work with the parents as much as the teen. In this case, I split the session in half, where I work with the family leaders in half the session and the teen in the other half of the session. Yet children/teens don’t need to be present in order for problems to improve.
If you want to determine how I would work with your family, please schedule a free 15-minute phone consult with me. We can decide if I’m the best fit for your family to work toward feeling more confident in handling your current challenges.
