How Therapeutic & Educational Consultants Can Help Families with Troubled Teens

It can be an extremely overwhelming task to find the appropriate treatment program or intervention for a troubled teen. Families typically consider out of home placement during times of crisis and chaos, which makes taking the time to research and understand all of the different treatment options prohibitive.

As a licensed Marriage and Family therapist located in Santa Rosa, I use my clinical expertise to appropriately asses the individual needs of your child and family. Combining this with my professional assessment & experience of countless programs and interventions, I am able to provide personalized recommendations that will support your child’s necessary clinical, relational, and behavioral changes.

When is it time to consider treatment in an out of home setting?

  • When therapeutic support for your child and family is not creating change
  • When parents feel like they have tried everything, and nothing is working
  • When parent’s ability to keep their child safe is compromised or undermined

Clinical and behavioral issues that can lead to the need for out of home treatment:

  • Depression & anxiety
  • Drug & alcohol abuse
  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal ideation and attempts at suicide
  • Loss and grief
  • PTSD/trauma
  • School refusal
  • Anger & oppositional behavior
  • Problems with the law
  • Adoption/attachment issues
  • Family conflict
  • Autistic spectrum/NLD
