Imagine having the support to know when to step-in, when to take a step back, when to listen, and how to communicate so that your teen really hears you.
Parenting your teen has nearly destroyed you. Their anger, depression, and self-destruction has devastated your entire family. Most days, you're barely hanging on by a thread. Your instinct is to protect, yet nothing you do seems to help. You feel alone and helpless. You're obsessing, hovering, and constantly questioning their state of mind. "What does she have to be depressed about?" "I don't understand; he has everything he needs." "Why would they do that?" You're expected to remain strong and contain your worst fears as you watch them unravel in self-defeat.

ADHD can make you stuck. It can make you feel like you're walking through life in 3 feet of water. Every. Single. Day. Maybe you're a professional working in an environment that makes deadlines and productivity feel unreachable because it was designed for a different brain than yours. Or you're the parent of a struggling teen , often wondering to yourself what you can do to make them feel better. Or perhaps you're a college student, trying to balance the academic and social demands around you. Regardless, you live in a constant state of overwhelm. It’s enough to make you want to scream. Or cry. I'm here to help...

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 minor life events can be disruptive to your life depending on what they are. When they are sudden they can also create worry, stress, confusion, sadness, anger, and frustration. Do you ever feel that way? Is it because of Child Protective Services, relationship problems, or difficulty with life itself? With 18 years of experience in mental health, crisis management, adolescent behaviors, family/marital conflict, domestic violence and child welfare my primary focus is to help you find solutions. If you need professional help, I look forward to working with you in a safe and judgment free environment.

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety or anger, these emotions can impact all areas of your life (including your relationships, work, peace of mind) and prevent you from being your best self. As your provider, my goal is to give you the tools to reach your personal goals and process and cope better with life circumstances in a non-judgmental and therapeutic environment. When you make a change, everything around you is forced to change how it reacts to you and that is how therapy becomes a powerful process.

Too often, we feel we are surviving rather than thriving. Do you feel stuck in grief or loss, or that your anxiety is running the show? Are your relationships painful or not satisfying?Perhaps you are worried about the way you feel- powerless, lonely, sad or overwhelmed. Parenting is hard! Maybe you are a new parent and it isn't what you expected, or even hoped for. Nobody tells you about the postpartum experience -that internal voice in your head that is constantly critiquing the new role of motherhood you're taking on, mourning the version of yourself you once were. Not to mention the pain that comes with a birth plan gone wrong.

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