Need to feel safe? Prefer a therapist who says it like it is (with a side of class, tact, and the ability to help you get to your stuff with out feeling judged or shamed)? I focus on assisting teens, couples, and families with problems in day to day living to more complex issues that have reached crisis level. My strengths are in the areas of divorce, anxiety (triggers and control), bullying, ADD &ADHD lifestyles, and teen /parent relationship issues. I welcome parenting and couple dilemmas. Furthermore, I am experienced in dealing with gender issues, depression, grief, and general tough times.

I have over 18 years of experience working with adolescents, individuals, and families in crisis. Teens and young adults are under all sorts of external pressure that can lead to sudden mood changes, anxiety, feelings of insecurity, and questioning self-worth. Whether its a strained relationship with your teen , or you are looking to improve, or you just want to make sure you have the right strategies for helping your teen or young adult thrive, I can help. My direct work with adolescents gives me a unique perspective which has put me in touch with the emotional needs of teens and I integrate that into my approach.LGBTQ+friendly.

Hello. My name is Kent and I help kids, teens and their families live happier lives. I am an expert at bridging the communication gap between parents and kids. Is your teen angry or sullen? Slamming his fist through the wall? Screaming her lungs out at you because you are so unfair? How about your little kid? Is he having problems making friends? Perhaps your little girl can't concentrate in school. Maybe there is a tragedy in the family, such as a death, divorce or sudden illness. If so, I'd like to help.

Growing up, few were taught how to get out of their head, cope with anxiety, depression, or anger. There was no class on this. We learned from the people around us and TV to avoid things, drink, yell, lie, shut down, isolate, spend money, and worry. So for most people, the method of dealing with their problems don't quite cut it. That's why it's vital to learn skills to have control over emotions so that emotions don't have control over us. My goal is to provide you or your teen these skills, insight, hope and a chance to change in meaningful ways.

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.
