I have a special interest in working with adolescent females to promote self-esteem.
My goal is to help you on your path to recovering the happiness and emotional health you deserve. It is common to assume that therapy is only for those who are incapable of helping themselves, or that therapy is a last resort in the life of a struggling individual. In reality, therapy is for everyone, whether you struggle with extreme grief, anxiety, depression, or simply need to share how you are feeling with an unbiased set of ears. Our shared intent will be to create a safe space in which to help you achieve emotional empowerment. We will use that foundation to discuss any problem, no matter how seemingly great or small.

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 Gaithersburg and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
