Parenting can be tough. You wonder if your child will ever grow out of their excessive worries, meltdowns, or tantrums, and you become exhausted and feel guilty for being frustrated with them. The nightly battle with homework and reports from school are wearing you down. The power struggle with your spirited toddler or your strong willed adolescent may leave you overwhelmed and wondering what you can do differently. Communicating and feeling unified with your partner or caregiver may be difficult or your styles may be different, creating a state of uncertainty or chaos in the home.

I am excited that you have taken the first step to reach out for help. Therapy can be extremely helpful and positive when you are in a stage in your life where you think you have tried everything you can to get past the barriers that are keeping you from feeling and being where you want to be in life. Our childhood experiences deeply affect who we become as adults. Do you have trauma that you want to process? Are you experiencing a life transition that just seems too difficulty to cope with? Is your child or teen experiencing anxiety or depression? I am here to help you through various techniques in order to achieve your goals.

I specialize in teen , young adult and individual needs.
I believe therapy is a place where a client can feel safe to express his/her/they concerns without being judged. This is a place where you can come and talk about things you can't talk about with anyone else. Clients come into therapy to find answers to questions they can't find on their own. My goal is for each client to be able to use the tools developed in therapy and take them into the outside world. This is a place where we, as a team, can set realistic goals that are reachable by you, the client. I want each client to take steps to become the heathiest version of themselves.

Every human being experiences hardships and difficult times in their lives. I became a therapist in order to understand and support people in getting through and understanding themselves in such times. I work from a Cognitive Behavioral Approach, meaning I believe that our thoughts, both conscious and subconscious, influence our behaviors and vice a versa. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, childhood trauma, and developmental transitions between teen and adulthood. Especially with the pandemic, that transition has been especially difficult on both the student and the families.

Maybe you are here because your teen is acting in ways you don't understand.
Do you worry if she is making the right choices? As a parent, you want the best for your child. Perhaps it was easier when they were younger. Now that she is a teenager , things are more difficult. These days the world is complicated. Children are influenced by their peers, the internet, and the media. Maybe you are feeling like you used to have a close relationship and now your teen is more distance. Many parents who come to see me ask "Why is she so angry?" At times you may feel like you don't know what to do?

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
