"Change is not about moving forward, it is letting go of where you are". I really value this quote and refer to it daily; not only in my life but also when helping with the lives of others. I aim to offer supports and guidance to individuals, couples and families seeking assistance in making a change for the better. My goal is to collaborate with the individual, couple and or family to build rapport, gain trust and meet the individual(s) where he or she is at in their lives in order to build resistance and move towards the solution to the presented issue(s).

“People do not come to therapy to change their past but to change their FUTURE” by Milton Erickson. This quote speaks volumes in what therapy is about to me. Often people find therapy as drudging up past issues that they don't want to think about or find therapy as a sign of weakness. Therapy is quite the opposite. Therapy is a great strength that a person can bring into their life to help them live their life to their fullest potential. We are not our past or current situations. I have been a social worker for 25 years and worked in a variety of settings including mental health clinic and psychiatric hospital programs.

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