“You are doing your best at your current level of awareness.” Yet, you feel stuck, lost, and that your best isn't good enough. In your relationship, you wonder where things went wrong and why you and your partner aren't communicating the way that you used to. As a parent, you question whether you're actually doing what's best for your child , and feel guilty when the results of your parenting aren't as you planned. At work, you feel anxious and burned out. No matter what you do, you're still stressed out and overwhelmed with endless expectations and responsibilities. You know what's good for you, yet coping skills don't seem to work.

I specialize in working with youth and young adults aged 12-25, who are experiencing difficulty with life and family transitions, anxiety, and depression. Young adulthood is an exciting time rich with change and growth for most youth, but it may also be a scary or difficult time, particularly if there are other factors at play, including stress or changes within the family, school, or social networks. In addition to stressors, negative or maladaptive thoughts or behaviors can contribute to or exacerbate feelings of anxiety or depression.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
