Being a child or teen right now is hard, with a lot of pressure and emotions dealing with school, friendships, social media, family, and their future. Supporting and helping our children navigate all of these factors, along with the new things that seem to pop up every day is stressful. My approach is that everyone can use therapy to learn skills to manage our emotions. My aim is to create a safe place for children to open up and learn tools to better manage their emotions and behaviors, and improve self-esteem. I strive to always provide a warm space, where you and your child feel safe to be vulnerable and work towards your goals.

Any individual that is suffering from addiction, a lack of motivation to conquer their goals, or looking to explore a deeper practice of mindfulness in their day to day life can benefit from the ongoing support that counseling can provide. Chronic relapsing, low self esteem, and barriers created through active addiction will prevent us from recovery. Maybe you have a family member that is suffering or you would like to receive more information on substance use disorder, I can help educate and provide coping strategies to give you more peace of mind as you support your loved one.

You're lost in the weeds of to-do's, obligations, & responsibilities; your mind a cacophony of distractions clamoring for your attention. At some point, this life you built got so busy that you're no longer enjoying it. Instead, you're overwhelmed by the anxiety of it all; sure that something will go horribly wrong. You tell yourself that these worries aren't real, just scary stories you contemplate- your own "monster under the bed". So you push them to the back of your mind and slap a smile on your face, forging on. Unfortunately, until we open the door to face the boogeyman, that gnawing feeling of dread won't ever really go away.

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.
