Complex child and adolescent issues

Today’s children of all ages  are interacting in their school and other social peer group without understanding how to protect themselves and without understand the fundamentals of boundary setting.  Further, they may now know how to communicate about these issues with their parents or caregivers, providing teens with the opportunity to take part in their own counseling allows them to further develop skills which promote independence. Therapy for children and adolescents and teens can help them improve their overall functioning at home, school, within the family, and with peers/social environment.
