Parenting skills


Parenting a teen isn’t easy. As he or she starts to establish his/her identity and assert his/her independence, many parents are witness to unpredictable and often bizarre mood swings and behaviors. And as crazy as it seems, this is normal and common sense parenting strategies are usually effective in helping teens move beyond this life stage.

However for some teens, changes in emotions and behaviors go beyond normal. Even the best of families can experience significant problems with teens than can include self-destructive behaviors, such as addiction, eating disorders or self-harming behavior, anger, defiance, academic failure, depression, anxiety, and more.

If you’re a parent struggling with a teenager who has psychological, emotional or behavioral problems, you’re not alone.

Parenting strategies that may have once been effective don’t work anymore, requiring new or different approaches to help your teen cope with emotions and behavior in a more constructive way.

Let our Healthwise team help. We offer parenting skills therapies to help you learn how to cope with a troubled teen. This includes changing or improving how you respond to your teen’s actions, how to establish rules and boundaries, identify behavior triggers, and ways to help your teen develop healthy outlets for wide-ranging emotions.

We offer the following therapies:
