Khara Fuentes, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Phoenix
Is your daughter spending more time alone in her bedroom with the door closed? Is she more irritable, sensitive and crying without explanation? Maybe she started to break the rules. Or as her parent you're not sure how to connect with her. Therapy can help. For teens there's a lot happening in life and it can be overwhelming. Figuring out who she is and what she stands for is a daunting task complicated by the stresses of friends, school and her changing role from a child to an almost-adult in family.
Your daughter has the power to make improvements; therapy can be a catalyst for those improvements. My work with teenagers focuses on helping her find her voice, gain confidence and effectively communicate with those supportive of her leading to improved relationships with adults and peers.
Using a variety of therapeutic approaches (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Family Systems, and Play Therapy, Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Depression Treatment Quality Improvement) I'm able to assist your daughter in re-connecting with meaningful relationships, setting and achieving personal goals and improve over all life functioning.
