How Do I Talk with My Teenager?

My family's not communicating well! How do we get back to being a family again?

Our team of counselors at Teen Therapy Center are experienced at helping teens and families live happier lives.  We understand the communication struggles that teenagers and families face during adolescence.  Guiding families on how to talk about controling anger effectively and how to safely support each other through sadness and fear towards balanced mental health is what we do best.

What separates Teen Therapy Center from other mental health professionals?

We know how to speak your kid’s language… whether your child is four, fourteen or twenty-four. We understand how kids think. Our extensive training, diverse education, and wide range of clinical experience all influence how we interact with our clients. Equally important, we all remember being young, how we felt as adolescents, and how we looked at the world. We can help your teenager and we can help your family.  We offer a variety of positive therapeutic interventions including counseling for individuals, family therapy,  group therapy for teens and parent workshops.
