I am certified in two treatment models: Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach for substance abusing adolescents and Brief Strategic Family Therapy for families.
I believe that counseling can be a space for you to explore the obstacles that are getting in your way of achieving your goals. In treatment we will focus on what is working in your life and build from those successes to help you make the change you want to make.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Park Ridge and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
