My ideal client is an adult or late teen/young adult, with an interest in improving and transforming their life via therapy. I focus on the whole person, contextualizing presenting problems/diagnoses within the framework of family dynamics, peer relations, trauma history, physical health, and job/school experience. That is, I don't consider it useful to assume that issues arise in a vacuum! The greatest gift my clients give me is their ability to teach me far more than I could possibly teach them. I consider our time in session one of validation, hope, and intense curiosity about my client's lives.

Having said that, I see many adolescent and teens.
Due to COVID, I am doing 100 percent Telehealth. I am very sad to say, I no longer meet with young children, since play therapy cannot happen on-line. I am now only working with children 9 and older, adolescent's, families and adults. In this past year, so many individuals and families are experiencing extreme anxiety and depression. I can help by teaching and supporting you through it. I have a very easy going, and warm demeanor. Also,having raised four boys, now men, I know first-hand the challenge and chaos of family life.

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