Being home with your kids in a pandemic is a LOT to handle. It feels impossible to keep on top of online schoolwork, get meals ready, and get your own work done. You're exhausted. And that means more fights with your partner, too. You just need a moment to yourself. To relax and regroup. You're so ready for the kids to go back to school. But you're dreading that moment too. You remember the phone calls about classroom behavior and unfinished assignments. And the meltdowns over drama with friends. You're not sure you're ready to handle all that again. But it CAN get better. Now, and in the future.

I work with teachers and school administrators to help children learn and thrive in school

This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.

SE HABLA ESPANOL I believe psychotherapy is a process that helps a person connect deeply with her/himself. By becoming more aware, through the therapeutic relationship, a person comes to understand the basis of his/her conflicts and developmental challenges, which can be manifested by symptoms of depression, anxiety or other distress. I use an interactive approach that focuses on peoples' strengths as well as exploring where they feel stuck. A goal is to help people see themselves realistically, and then to increase their ability to manage thoughts and feelings constructively, enhancing their relationships and their sense of purpose and well-being in the world.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Therapists
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a 20910 adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in 20910, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

20910 teen Therapists also provide help for troubled teens in 20910 or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, 20910 therapists can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And therapists in 20910 can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20910 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 20910. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20910

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20910 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20910 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20910 or family therapy in 20910.
