Our approach to counseling for teens is distinctive because we focus on the whole family. To see lasting change in your teen or child’s disruptive behavior, you as the parent must be consistent in your parenting methods – building open communication, setting boundaries, and establishing emotional attachments. At KCCGC, we work with the entire family to create a solid foundation so your child or teen can have continuing success.
“A review of all available research data show that youth will return to past problems if their parents remain unchanged in the areas of consistent limit setting, rebuilding emotional attachments, and improved communication.”
