For over 18 years I've worked with people experiencing mental illness (anxiety, depression & PTSD), marital conflict, teen problems, families dealing with a love one's mental illness, domestic violence, crisis management, and Child Protective Services (DCFS).
Major and sudden life events can be disruptive to your life depending on what they are. They can also create worry, stress, confusion, sadness, anger, emotional pain, and frustration. Do you ever feel that way? Is it because of Child Protective Services, problems with your spouse or partner, or feeling pessimistic about life itself? With 18 years of experience in mental health, crisis management, adolescent behaviors, marital conflict, domestic violence and child welfare my primary focus is to help you heal and find solutions. If you need professional help, I look forward to working with you in a safe and judgment free manner.

I began my Marriage and Family teletherapy practice in California out of a desire to use my life experience, education, and faith to help serve the emotional and behavioral health needs of our community and our state. Through my experience in all levels of treatment, I have discovered that building rapport through a supportive relationship in therapy creates a safe and positive space to work through life’s difficulties, understand important issues, learn new and effective coping skills, and develop full relationships to lead a more authentic life. I believe in working together to create treatment goals and exploring areas of growth.

I have been supporting families and their children for over 25 years. Before I completed my MSW, I worked as a peer counselor, lactation consultant, and parent educator. That experience enhances and supports my work as a social worker. My early training in engineering and understanding of research provides a broad understanding of development through childhood into adolescence. I utilize a strength-based, and client centered approach to the therapeutic process, identifying personal strengths and direction from the person receiving support.

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.
