I am currently accepting new patients. Is your teen or pre- teen suffering from depression or anxiety? Are they struggling in school or with their peer group? Through the use of art, crafts and play therapy techniques, your child can learn new ways of coping. Children and teens don't always have the ability, or the words, to share how they are really feeling. Instead it comes out in their behaviors, which often times ends up creating conflict, disharmony and upset. It doesn't have to be this way. Your child and your family can enjoy being together. It is possible to see your child or teen be their best self!

Is your pre- teen or teen -age child unusually irritable, withdrawn, sad, angry or tearful? Teens will often open up to therapists when they don't talk to parents. If your teen is refusing school, or not enjoying life, s/he may be struggling with anxiety or depression, inadequate social skills, bullies, feeling different, sexual identity, parental divorce, or body image worries. I offer a warm, nurturing and safe environment for adolescents to share their feelings and start to feel better about themselves. I enjoy helping adolescents and parents find their way during these difficult times.

If you are here today because your teen or child is feeling anxious, overwhelmed, depressed, unmotivated, or your family is stuck in conflict; you are in the right place. Parenting a struggling child can be a frightening and isolating experience and you don't have to do it alone. Using your feelings of fear, frustration, and maybe grief; to push for help and change, is pure courage. Returning to that place, where your child feels good again and your family feels like home, is a beautiful and realistic goal.

Over the past 20 years, my specialties have included depression, anxiety, adolescent and family therapy, relationship and communication issues, grief and loss, life transitions, domestic violence, anger and crisis management, eating disorders & self image, self-esteem, personal & professional growth.
I am a dedicated and compassionate therapist committed to helping you achieve success and joy in your life as well as supporting you in creating healthy and meaningful relationships with others. I have found that unwanted symptoms such as depression, anxiety, anger, conflict and unhappiness are clues that something in our life is missing or isn't working, and that it's time to make a change. Together, we will explore and gain a deeper understanding of what is causing the pain, or dissatisfaction, so that you can begin the process of healing and positive change.

I have specialized training or certification in anxiety and depression treatment, trauma resolution, PTSD, ADHD, and adolescent issues.
Are you wanting to feel differently or have something change in your life but dont know how to get there? Sometimes we just need help generating the internal and external life we crave. I believe that early relationships in our life affect the way we think, feel, and behave towards the people we care about. It even changes the way our brains develop and personalities express themselves! I use a variety of interventions to support you in uncovering patterns that are causing problems, heal, and learn new ways of being. You have many strengths just waiting to be used. It would be an honor to walk alongside you.

I encourage you to contact me for a free phone consult and see if I would be a good fit for your journey or to help your struggling teen or young adult.
You may have experienced a disruption in your life causing unmanageable discomfort or perhaps you are seeking enjoyment and life satisfaction that has been missing for some time. While pain is an inevitable part of existence, suffering does not have to be. My role is to provide a nonjudgmental space to work through what challenges you. Anxiety and depression, relational or end of relationship issues, interpersonal conflict, substance use, teenage difficulties, social anxiety, lack of meaning or purpose, are my areas of most experience.

Do you feel like your mind has been working overtime lately? Can you actually feel painful emotions in your body? Do you find yourself unexpectedly triggered by conversations, stressful events, or negative thoughts that seem to persist? Are you kinder to others than you are to yourself? Or, are you a parent who is concerned about your teenager as they seem noticeably anxious, irritable, self-conscious, or self-critical lately? Being human can feel complex, we all experience highs and lows. Therapy isn’t one size fits all, everyone is unique and YOUR experience matters.

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