Adrien Survol Rivin PSYD is my counseling practice in Sherman Oaks, CA. To my clients from the area and Los Angeles, CA, I offer various psychotherapy services, including those of an adolescent counselor.
The parenting of adolescents can be difficult for many reasons. Adolescence is a period of transition from childhood to adulthood, and it can be hard on both the parents and their offspring. The child experiences various physical, emotional, behavioral, and social changes. Along with a rush of hormones, the child experiences much more – and namely, the journey to self-realization.
As the child strives to be more independent, a communication gap may arise between them and their parents. Often, parents may feel anxious about their child making major mistakes in their quest for independence, and the child may not have sufficient experience to understand the reasons why their parents are worried.
Conflicts may arise between children and parents at that age, which, however, don’t have to be irresolvable. With my help, both sides of these conflicts or tensions may become better able to understand the other side’s perspective and reach an outcome, in which both sides will be winners.
Modern lives have become very complex, and not all parenting problems can be solved intuitively, using common sense, or simply repeating the patterns you were raised by. Science, in the form of parenting of adolescents counseling, offers techniques and methods to solve difficult situations in the lives of adolescents and their families.
