What is the goal of Mental Health Counseling? To explore the client's own energy and determination to reverse a cycle of behaviors that are destructive to self and relationships. I strive to create a counseling relationship that is non judgmental, safe, secure, and accepting. You, the client, are unique, worthy and capable of change. You can move from a position of helplessness to a feeling of control and responsibility for your own behaviors and determine your own destiny. Call my office to discuss ways I can assist you in leading a happier and healthier life.

It’s hard to imagine a more accurate stereotype than the image of an unhappy adult reclined on a chaise lounge while venting about an unhappy childhood. Though the stereotype might be overly simplified, the reality is your childhood and adolescent years go on to color the rest of your life, shaping your personality, relationships, goals, and opinions. The importance of these years is what drew me to the field. From my very first placement as a graduate school intern, I was especially drawn towards the prospect of helping children and young adults navigate their way through a time that can feel like a rollercoaster.

You look at your adolescent and wonder what happened to your sweet, happy kid? Your parent intuition tells you something is not right. There are so many changes, too fast. Adolescence is a stage of life that brings with it a lot of change, physically, socially, and emotionally. Whether your child is entering adolescence, in the middle of adolescence or at the end of adolescence, each stage brings its challenges. Not addressing issues presented with your teen can lead to risky behaviors. Most parents brace themselves and suffer through it, as does their teen but it doesn't have to be this way!

Being a teen in today's world, becoming a young adult, parenting through the struggles, dealing with unexpected changes, living though a pandemic; so many things we experience that can bring on confusion, discomfort, and even feelings of hopelessness or helplessness. Sometimes the changes and challenges become overwhelming and you might find yourself thinking “How do I find my way forward?"

The reasons people seek therapy are diverse but the root is often the same; a search for well-being. We all have an innate desire to live a meaningful life and we all have the ability to cultivate this, yet sometimes we get stuck. I work to help clients discover their own unique path to well-being. This is often achieved with a balance between helping clients truly understand and accept themselves, while simultaneously leading them towards growth and change.

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