Adolescence can be tough for some people. Parents may find that they are either ill-equipped to deal with the stressors of parenting, or they don’t know how to deal with the difficulties their teen is going through (in their personal lives, school, sports, etc), or both!

Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove
“I really appreciate the time we’ve spent together. You’ve helped me control my anxiety and get rid of my depression. I appreciate the exercises that you’ve taught me and how I was able to vent to you about my situations at school and myself personally. I feel very comfortable in telling you my problems. I’m really going to miss you and the time we spent together.”

“Dr. Dove was very helpful and understanding of my life and issues that came along with it. I never felt pressured to reveal anything I felt was inappropriate, but she always made me feel comfortable enough to share anything.”
