Being in your teens can be overwhelming. There is no other point in life when so many physical, emotional, and social changes take place at the same time. It takes strength and courage to recognize that things in your life are not going as well as you would like. Sometimes you may not even feel like you know who you are, why you do the things you do, or where your hope has gone. It takes courage to reach out to others and this courage should be respected and rewarded with commitment and support.
Many people get stuck in unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaviors that are at best unproductive, and at worst, stifling. Change can be scary and involves taking risks. In order to make lasting positive changes, we must feel confident and capable and believe the changes we make will improve our quality of life.
Positive Change for Teens and Families, LLC established by Karyn Feit, MSW, LCSW provides strength based, confidential services to teens and young adults to help navigate the often difficult transition to adulthood. I partner with parents and families to facilitate healthy communication by modeling and teaching practical skills that enhance relationships and can last a lifetime. I respect the importance of the parental role, while, at the same time, providing youth with a safe and comfortable place to learn and grow.
By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we can work together to help to identify the things that are getting in the way of your contentment, comfort and success in life. I look forward to talking with you and helping you to feel better.
