I Believe

Do you worry about how to raise a good, kind, decent teenager? Does your teen drive you crazy? Are you looking for support during these difficult years?

Welcome to survivingteenyears.com!

Joy has worked as a family therapist for 20 years. She specializes in working with teens and their families. Joy sees the strengths and unique gifts in every client. Teens are being shaped by their friends, families, environment and society every day. A teen's sense of self is developing rapidly and is widely influenced by their social world.

Perhaps a parents greatest challenge in raising kids is learning how to provide the delicate balance of guiding their teen to successful interactions in their social world while allowing them to make mistakes along the way.

Joy understands a teens journey to independence and the impact this has within a family. She offers support, shows parents how to continue to love their sometimes difficult-to love-teens, and shares her humor along the way.
