I also work with people dealing with stress management, interpersonal conflicts due to Borderline Personality Disorder and adolescent disorders.
When is it time to seek counseling? Well, for each person it is different. This is because everyone has their own breaking point - a point where stress or trauma becomes so overwhelming that it becomes harder to engage in normal everyday activities. If your stress is interfering with your sleep, parenting, or work then it is probably a good time to get assistance to work through the issues. I offer a safe and confidential environment to address these issues and find practical solutions in order for you to gain emotional relief.

My practice specialties include couples engaged in pre-marital or marital therapy, individuals or couples working through a separation or divorce, individuals working on improving familial or romantic relationships, couples needing assistance with parenting, and adolescent/parent struggles.
I have one of the few jobs where my goal is to get fired. My ideal outcome is to help you to help yourself so that you don't need me anymore. Do you feel "stuck" in a relationship? Do you feel as if you have the same arguments over and over again with no resolution? Do you feel like there are too many obstacles standing in the way of achieving a relationship you had hoped for? My job is to help you get "unstuck" and change problematic patterns of interaction so that you can enjoy meaningful relationships in the future.

Every teenager seeks autonomy and independence.
I offer psychotherapy and psychological testing for teenagers and adults. Adults seek help for ADHD, anxiety or mood disorders. I help them find meaning, purpose, and joy as they function more fully at home and work. Also, I work with teenagers who underachieve and present behavior challenges, mood disorders and various types of anxiety. When working with teens, I also work closely with parents to help them learn how to encourage their kid's growth toward autonomy and self-direction. It is a joy to encounter parents and teenagers as they learn to cooperate, rather than to struggle against each other.

Not only do I ensure your teen is being supported by at least one trusted adult in their life, but I can also support you with some information to ensure you aren't left in the dark.
*Accepting New Clients throughout September* Gutwrenching, shocking, and confusing. Discovering your teenager has been experimenting with drugs and alcohol is many parents' worst nightmare. Seeing your child transform from a happy and bright kid into a withdrawn mystery is scary. You don't have to continue to spend countless hours researching how to help them, lay awake worrying about their future or be "the bad cop" anymore. If you want to start healing your relationship with your child before it is too late, I might be the therapist for you.

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