In most of my work with minor clients I take a whole-family approach, working closely with parents/caregivers in addition to the child or teen .
Accepting new clients as of 9/6/22! Ready to drop the struggle? I am here. I provide psychotherapy to school-aged children, adolescents, adults, and families. Maybe you want to feel less bogged down by anxiety? To feel less empty or numb? Maybe you want your child to be able to cope with their feelings? Or you want your child's tantrums to stop for good? I can help you achieve these goals, along with many others. I focus on treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem, self-compassion, life transitions, stressors, behavioral problems in children/teens, parenting and family issues.

My first love is teens and young adults. I approach the younger audience with an easy and open manner creating a relatable and accepting atmosphere. As a result, young people gravitate to me as they sense I attune to their experience with genuine care. As a mother of three young adult women–as well as an uncanny memory of my own adolescent adventures–I understand this demographic, and the need for the confident guidance of a capable clinician to help support and empower them through this unique life stage.

Every teen and situation is unique, with unique challenges, history, and patterns so we focus all our proven clinical efforts on each individual and his or her family.
We believe our teens today are reacting to an existential emptiness in our culture with negative coping behaviors such as over use of social media, substance addictions, mental health issues, eating disorders, school failures, and even suicides. Treating the cause of these issues as well as symptoms requires a physiological, mental, and spiritual approach in order for teens to thrive and attain lasting transformation into adulthood. Encompass takes such an approach, sensitive to the unique needs of our adolescents and their family members, whose involvement is highly encouraged throughout treatment since family is where we all live.

Together, I will work with your teen to identify the details of their emotional world.
Chances are, you might be concerned about your teens mood and behavior. You are willing to do anything to see them happy. You know this time in their life can be hard, and you understand their confusion. Their frustration, and your frustration makes sense. I am here to help. Over the past decade, I’ve found ways to connect with teens; the ones that have tried everything to feel better, and despite their best efforts, have run out of options. Together, with a strong dose of humor and realness, we can understand and make sense of their behavior.

Despite your hard work, does it seem like problems continue to pop up for you? You might consider your family disorganized or even chaotic. You have noticed a shift in your child or children and are concerned, it may be caused by divorce or a loss in the family, or other events that cause stress. You are worried about their socialization and they seem to just not be themselves. Friends, family and maybe even teachers are expressing their own concerns regarding your child. You are not sure if it's your parenting or what more you can provide your child. This is scary, overwhelming and it takes courage to admit it isn't working.

I take an Existential-Integrtaive approach to psychotherapy. This approach helps individuals orient themselves in their lives, understanding their relational dynamics, unpacking trauma that has become a burden, and striving towards living a meaningful existence. I find that I am most effective for individuals suffering from severe depression, anxiety, and substance use. I love working with adolescents and young adults who are struggling to figure themselves out as well as adults who feel stagnated in their lives. I help these people understand and accept themselves, while moving forward in a meaningful direction.

If you are looking at this page, you are most likely trying to get help. Finding a good match is essential to successful therapy. I connect with clients by listening and exploring without judgement. Clients have told me they appreciate my compassion, finding it easy to talk with me about difficult issues. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery where you learn why you do what you do, as well as how to change behaviors. Many hide their authentic self, conforming to the expectations of others. Psychotherapy can assist you in becoming reacquainted with yourself.

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.
