I graduated from The Menninger Clinic and pursued studies in environmental medicine, nutrition, biochemistry, auricular medicine, homeopathy and bioenergy healing. My practice incorporates spiritual, energetic meditative therapies and traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy, stress management, dreamwork, imagery, and behavior modification. I provide necessary information to choose a path toward wellness, rather than suppressing symptoms with drugs. Your spiritual beliefs are honored to facilitate your movement towards healing. Each individual is an active co-creator in orchestrating a personal treatment plan and path to wholeness.

Mental health matters. I am especially interested in caring for those who have experienced trauma. Maybe you had a traumatic birth experience. Or maybe you have been talked over and not been heard by other providers. You could be experiencing the results of developmental trauma. I place high value on how you experience things, no matter what others try to say about it. If you are ready to do something about the way you've been feeling and want to move toward living a fulfilling and satisfying life, I want to help. I am queer friendly and actively anti-racist. My priority is to provide a safe space for you.

Teen Psychiatrists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
