“Adolescence is a pivotal stage in our development as human beings. In the teen years, we solidify our sense of self and negotiate the winding path to becoming young adults. During this time, it is vital that parents understand their teen’s behavior rather than merely react to it. It’s not uncommon for parents, particularly those born in another culture, to find their teenager’s behavior confusing and even disturbing. I help parents get the whole picture of what’s going on in their child’s mind, including the neurological changes that occur during adolescence. Together, we can reconcile traditional and contemporary values, develop more effective parent-child communication, and discover solutions to any challenges your family is experiencing.”
