So...your teen doesn't know what they want, and neither do you. The conflicts seem constant, and they're just never happy. They have anxiety creeping over them like so many bugs, and it seems like they're so depressed you have the pry them out of bed with a crowbar.
Understanding your child or teens behavior can be confusing, if not downright frustrating. There is hope. As a gender non-conforming therapist and parent, I work with parents and their children so that they both better understand what is driving behavior, and just as importantly, how to change your patterns of living so that not only do they stop breaking the rules, but they no longer want to. I work with clients using EMDR, parts work/IFS, CBT, and honest communication.
I welcome you, your teens and your younger children to join me to celebrate everything that you are, no matter how or what that looks like. I am a lifelong lover of games, science fiction, and the arts. I fly my nerd flag high, and would love for you to fly yours with me!
I graduated from U.W. Whitewater with my M.S. in Counseling. I work with adolescents 12+ and adults. I typically schedule clients weekly or every other week to make sure no one is fighting for spots on my schedule. I am also part of Reflections' leadership team, and mentor our new and training-licensed therapists.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, tabletop gaming, and enjoying various fandoms.
