There is hope for your teen .
As a parent, you've been worried about what you see your teen going through. The excessive anxiety about school, relationships, and the struggle to adjust to any change in routine. Their stress level is high and they isolate from friends and family. You watch them play video games, scroll through social media and binge on Netfilx, but they never tell you what's going on. That's the scariest part. You want to help them, but you can't break through. And on top of that, the pandemic. You know it can't continue like this any longer.

I have worked in outpatient counseling services at Wellesley College and Harvard University, child/ adolescent inpatient and substance abuse day treatment.
In my private practice I enjoy working with a variety of presenting concerns including anxiety, relationship issues, depression, loss, stress and life's transitions. I have a special interest in how clients manage vulnerability through disordered eating and body image issues. When life becomes overwhelming many turn to controlling food and body as a protective strategy. With compassion and respect, I will help you understand your personal relationship with food. As your insight and self-awareness grow you will make the behavioral changes you desire while incorporating healthier coping skills.

Choosing a therapist can be a difficult process. It is important to find someone that you feel comfortable with and can confide in, and that the therapist you choose is skilled and experienced. Over the years I have enjoyed working with individuals, couples, families, and teens. This includes adults suffering from mood disorders, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, couples going through difficult times, separation, and divorce. A major part of my practice has been my work with adolescent girls and women to address issues of self esteem, body image, depression, and anxiety.

Life is about finding a healthy balance of communication with others & most importantly: yourself! remember: finding a therapist that is best for you is like finding a house, a spouse, or a pair of shoes: sometimes, you have to try on a few to find what works for you!

There’s a part of you that feels like you’re about to ​🅴🆇🅿🅻🅾🅳🅴​​​​​​​! You're stuck in a repetitive cycle with little improvement. You find it hard to smile sometimes and it makes you wonder when peace will arrive. You’re burnt out, too tired to hang with friends, too overwhelmed to play with your kids and the sight of your significant other is not helping. How long will continue with these repetitive cycles? This isn’t a healthy way to live and if you continue you may end up resenting the world and yourself. Operating from a place of discomfort is never easy and finding the help you deserve can be even harder.

*Not currently accepting new clients* Generalizations about therapy are difficult; experiences are as unique as the individuals involved and are unlike any that encountered in family, work, or personal life. Therapy requires involvement of and trust between clinician and client during and between sessions and asks questions or presents issues that may be difficult to discuss. Uncomfortable or unfamiliar emotions may arise, and exploration can lead to reduction in distressing feelings and greater understanding of one's experience, which many people experience as highly rewarding.

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