Teens today are facing more and more challenges and demonstrating riskier behaviors. Some teens are just more complicated and the strategies that work with one teen don’t always work with a complicated teen.
So many parents are concerned that their teens are establishing patterns of coping (avoiding, shutting down emotionally, isolating, engaging in self-harming or risky behaviors) that can possibly follow them into adulthood and interfere with their ability to live their best life.
Our workshops and classes help parents understand their teen, develop skills to respond to their teen in ways that increase skillful behaviors, and cultivate greater connection.
Discover Wise Parenting – wonderfully effective skills for bringing out the best in your teen.
6-week in-person class

As experienced licensed therapists and parents, we are passionate about our work with parents. For over 25 years, we have treated adolescents and families. We are thrilled by participants' reports of profound improvements in their relationships with their adolescents and in their overall family dynamics.
Not only do we teach these skills to parents and see the difference it makes, we practice the skills in our own lives and as a result experience greater joy and effectiveness. Our passion for this work and our excitement about its outcomes have driven us to offer this curriculum more widely.
Our supportive, positive learning environment empowers you with the support and skills needed to reconnect with your tween or teen and more effectively help them develop strength, independence, and healthy coping skills.
