Family therapy can be beneficial when parents are at odds with their teenager. Because teens are enveloped in a virtual world that widens the gap, a counselor can be a helpful go-between to improve communication. Dr. Staat will work to help parents learn to understand their children while teaching them to set firm limits, delineate boundaries, and enforce appropriate consequences when rules are violated. Dr. Staat has found that most teens respond when parents provide a sturdy wall of expectations that holds strong no matter how fiercely teens push against it. Dr. Staat will provide help & support.
