Adolescence and young adulthood are important developmental stages, but also times at which difficulties with mental health may emerge. Factors such as trauma, school or work responsibilities, or difficulties in relationships may add to the natural challenges of these age groups. Developing an understanding of biological, social, and psychological factors helps me to tailor care to each individual. I offer both individual therapy and medication management (when needed) within my practice, with a focus on treatment of the whole person.

Play Therapy Psychiatrists
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.
