Counseling for Teens & Family
Viewing child and adolescent clients as a “family client,” Alex keeps the entire family in mind during individual sessions with young clients and when working with parents.
Alex uses Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Family System approaches as he helps improve family relationships and increase understanding of different family members’ struggles.
He views all the working parts of the family system to help improve the multiple sub-system relationships (Dad and Mom, Dad and Teen, Mom and Teen, etc). The number of possible sub-system relationships exponentially increases with the addition of only one more child.
Skills and insights from Alex’s training as Becoming a Love and Logic Parent(R) facilitator are shared with parents to help them experience confidence and control in their vital roles as parents.
Alex also meets with adult members of families to work through conflict, stressors and issues.
