A Mother and Daughter Improve Their Communication

Salome is 16 year old and does not have contact with her biological father. Salome lives with her mother and siblings, and did not get along with any of them, their interactions often escalating to verbal confrontations. Salome had thoughts of leaving home and not finishing high school. She also had thoughts about hurting herself. After attending a few counseling sessions at Rapport, Salome was able to see that she could communicate positively with her mother and siblings. She now reports that her relationship with her mother is a lot better and that they talk all the time now. Salome feels that she no longer has to move out immediately and does not feel like hurting herself anymore. She is involved with the football and volleyball teams at her school and is progressing well.
