Goals of Family Counseling

Parent-Teen Relationship

  • Build better communication skills.

  • Active listening.

  • Nonverbal communication.

  • Develop self-awareness and patience.

  • De-escalate conflict.

  • How to respond to "mistakes."

  • Modeling respect.

  • Understand your teen, adolescent, and young adult.

Family counseling can help your family build better understanding, mutual respect, patience, and communication skills. It can develop techniques to increase your ability to navigate disagreements. 

Adolescent development involves discovering Who Am I, How Do I Fit In. This comes with conflict, uncertainty, and an increased need for independence and autonomy. Parents often respond to teens with anger or criticism, or they try to resolve the conflict for their children, instead of collaborating with their children to find out what they need to resolve issues on their own.
