Coping with the Demands and Rigors of Middle and High School

Going to middle school and high school can be very stressful, and present a child with a load of new and challenging responsibilities. The greatest hurdles to overcome include successfully navigating social dynamics among rapidly maturing peers, hard academic work requiring ever-developing executive functioning skills, and the physiological and mental stress of adolescent development.

Dr. Allen offers approaches to coach a teenager toward success. Some strategies include academic skills coaching for enhancing executive function and preparedness, social and rapport building skills, stress management and self-regulation skills, counseling for problem-solving and life coaching, and psychotherapy for helping through life challenges.
Dr. Allen offers a therapeutic Kung Fu Training Room with a variety of skills building opportunities. (See Kung Fu Program Section)
