What Happens When We Work Together

The first time we meet is to get to know each other. It's important that your teen gets to know me a bit and I get to know them. A sense of trust goes a long way, so I want to make sure teens have a chance to ask questions and understand what therapy is about. Once we meet for the first time, how long treatment lasts will depend on specific issues, intensity of what they're dealing with, and parental support and engagement.


How Much Parents Are Involved

These are your teen's sessions, so what we talk about stays between us. At the same time, it's important for parents to know what's going on. I usually like to send an email or have parents join sessions every so often to be updated on how sessions are going. I encourage parents to ask questions and be involved, especially because parent involvement is key to a teen's success and how they work on issues in therapy.
