Does your adolescent refuse to comply with rules and responsibilities? Need help in navigating parenting a child that presents challenges? Contact Rob to discuss how he might help you.

Counseling for Challenging Children and Their Parents

Parenting is difficult enough. When a child or teen displays defiant attitudes and behaviors, the challenge level is amplified many fold, especially when the behaviors take place at home and school. There are many potential reasons for children withdrawing, displaying defiant behavior, arguing with adults, and/or refusing to comply with rules. Counseling can help identify root causes. In some but definitely not all cases, a child may be diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Whether ODD applies, Rob will help you identify root causes for the challenging behaviors and help you and your child come up with goals and a plan for acheiving them. Rob knows that families are complex systems that need to work together to bring about positive change.  He will work with both children and parents to promote a team approach and effort for improvement.
