About

Looking for a teen specialist? Your teen is struggling with his/her/their emotions. They seem sensitive and tend to get upset at what you would consider “small stuff”. Your teen has thoughts of hurting or killing him/her/themselves. They are self-injuring. You see your teen struggling and are not sure what to do. Your teen has been hospitalized or placed in a residential treatment program for severe depression, self-injury, or attempted suicide. You have tried everything, and you do not understand what is going on for your teen. You need expert help in supporting your teen through these challenges.
I am an LPC and certified child and adolescent trauma professional specializing in working with teens who struggle with regulating emotions and tolerating distress. I treat the underlying symptoms using comprehensive Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (group and individual). This approach has been shown to effectively treat teens who struggle with emotions.
You need someone who can connect with your teen. Contact me for a free 15-minute consultation to see how I can support you. The comprehensive DBT program includes weekly group and individual therapy for your child as well as phone coaching and parent support sessions. I offer-virtual and in-person sessions as well as.
