This is a group devoted to supporting parents whose teenagers are struggling with depression and anxiety as well as ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Other important related issues such as low self-esteem will be addressed as this can contribute to the use of substance, poor sexual decisions, self-harm and other impulsive choices. This group will educate, support and provide information for concerned parents who are raising teenage boys and girls in the complex world of technology. Group members interested in connecting with other parents to discuss current adolescent issues and develop greater coping skills in supporting their teens will benefit from this group. The group will be organized by a Parent/Therapist with teens who is passionate about investing in our children so that they can lead productive lives with integrity. Together the group members will use their commonality and curiosity to help understand issues teens are facing and empathize with this new and unfamiliar world of facebook, texting, tweeting during the tornado years so that we can build a sense of community. So fasten your seatbelts, it may be a rocky ride but with support and connection we can conquer our parental fears and move toward building a safety net for our kids.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
