Houston Teen Counselor and Child Counselor

The teen years offer significant challenges for children and parents alike.  Children are faced with increasing social and academic demands while facing tough choices and greater responsibilities.  Raging hormones and strained relationships do not make it any easier!  Parents often feel frustrated and exhausted trying to help their child reach his or her full potential.  Many times, the parent/child relationship becomes marked by fighting and power struggles.  Parents and teens facing difficulty may find teen counseling effective and helpful.  Finding a teen therapist specifically trained and experienced working with adolescents frequently provides the greatest benefit.


Counseling often helps teens work through unresolved issues, make better choices, and better cope with their environment.  Frequently, children resist counseling or resent being told to attend.  This is why Kelly offers a special teen room tailored to meet the specific interests and needs of teens while providing a wide variety of activities, materials, and interactive gadgets to engage teens in the counseling process.


Teen counseling is not magic and as such, Kelly will work with parents to transfer her skill set into usable tools for parents to implement at home.  Parents can have the single greatest impact in their child's life, and Kelly creates a team environment working with parents and children to create positive and long-lasting solutions from counseling.  Some of the skills parents can expect to learn from counseling include stress reduction, relationship building, and ending power struggles.  Often, parents find they want to continue with individual or family counseling which enriches the process for the child as well.
