Claire Barron, PhD, Psychologist in Prairie Village
Adolescence can be a trying time for teenagers as they mature emotionally and try to handle new responsibilities in school, at home, and in planning for the future. It becomes all the more difficult if a teen is going through another issue like their parents getting divorced, difficulty learning in school, or losing an old group of friends. Sometimes just being able to talk to an adult who isn't their parent can help them process everything going on in their world and make positive changes.
My approach is to first listen, and then help adults,adolescents and children find solutions that can work for them. I've been working with adults, teens, children, families and couples for over 25 years as a private-practice psychologist and a consultant for area school districts.
When working with teens and children I think it is important to keep parents in the loop so a lot of times I will meet with parents for at least part of the session so that they can bring up any concerns that they have.
