I can address questions about parenting teens - from the perspective of a Mental Health Professional, Special Education teacher, Parent & Teacher Trainer, Mother, and Grandparent. Kinds of teen problems include academics, development, emotions, behavior, profanity, respect, sibling issues, parent-child issues, laziness, defiance, sex, drugs, alcohol, smoking, violence, unlawfulness, and issues related to family and societal values. My expertise stems from a lifetime of living in solution - I seek to understand challenges and find ethical and effective strategies that are based on a firm foundation of brain-based developmental principles and common sense child-rearing.
My greatest experience in the area of parenting teens is my background as a Mother to my own children and a Therapeutic Parent to the many children who lived in our home as part of a nurturing intervention. My work as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor focuses in the areas of developmental disorder (including Autism), emotional or behavioral disorder, learning problem, attachment disorder, mental health issues, and family or relational challenges.
