Parenting Teens Classes

Woman Helping Daughter with Homework

A Note From the L.A. Teen Therapist

“Raising a teenager can be extremely rewarding, exciting, and at the same time, very challenging.” – Sandra

During the often‐trying teen years, it is not uncommon for parents to feel they are failing in their child‐rearing responsibilities. But with the right approach, you can build healthier relationships with your teen and guide them on the path to becoming valued contributors to the community.

My parenting classes are private, and individually tailored to meet each family’s needs. I teach about creating healthy attachment styles, as well as have you reflect upon how the way in which you were parented. Together, we create a timeline representing their child’s journey, and look at how their past experiences may have impacted their development, and current behavior.

We typically meet for six sessions, during which I will give you reading assignments to complete before each session. In each session we examine specific challenges the you are facing with your teen, and I will coach on how to better understand and approach these challenges.

Learn how to strengthen your relationship with your teen while increasing cooperation, harmony, and happiness within the family.

Topics include:

  • Understanding Yourself and Your Teenager
  • Improving Your Response to Your Teen
  • How to Communicate Respect and Understanding
  • Encouraging Cooperation and Problem‐Solving
  • Using Consequences to Build Responsibility

By the end of this intensive 6‐week course, you will be able to help your teenager become more responsible, communicative and independent.

**Recommended for parents with children between the ages of 11 and 19.

I propose a style of interaction with your teen that honors the authority of the parent while accommodating the teen’s need for personal autonomy. Families facing serious problems will be empowered by proven parenting strategies that can truly make a difference in their lives!
