Mary Ann Badenoch
Counselor, LPC, LMHC, MAC Verified
Putnam Station, NY 12861
Offers online therapy
I also oversee the Online Support Community meetings for parents and caregivers of teen and adult children struggling with substance use problems.
I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW PATIENTS IN TEXAS. I specialize in substance use and problem gambling and help individuals and their families. My approach is to first understand the WHY behind the substance or gambling issues and then address this in therapy. We will create a plan to address the situation and monitor progress. Since one answer does not fit all, I will work with you to define what recovery looks like for you. That might mean a harm reduction plan and/or abstinence. My goal is to help you achieve a healthier lifestyle and improve your relationships.

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