Adolescent Counseling

Counseling for teens at mindCARES

Suzanne offers counseling for teens and their families. Edwina has 19 years of experience working with teens at Hinds Behavioral Health and is the mother of a 15 year old daughter. With over 20 years of experience as a classroom teacher and over 16 years as a therapist, she brings extensive experience and knowledge to enable today’s teens to cope with the many challenges of being a teen in the 21st century. Parenting an adolescent can make parents feel overwhelmed, because the parenting techniques that worked with their children may only cause resentment, anger, withdrawal, and/or rebellion with their teen. Counseling can help parents learn to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So That Teens Will Talk. Thus, teens will feel “heard and understood”, and parents will be empowered to set healthy boundaries while still communicating love and acceptance.
