I have worked primarily with children, adolescent and their families; working on behavioral issues, emotional regulation, trauma, anxiety, depression, parenting, and family dynamics.
I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand and build your own story. My goal is to help you figure out the person, the parent, the partner, whoever it is you want to be, and to help you develop skills to cope with the hardships that come with being that person. Being human comes with its own set of challenges and we each face different struggles based on our experiences in the world; whether that is anxiety, depression, substance use or difficulty with body image or identity. I enjoy practicing from a creative approach, and I don’t mind stepping outside of the traditional box.

Up front, I'm not the therapist for everyone. I don't have a flowery sales pitch about self-fulfillment and safe spaces, I'll probably be wearing an old t-shirt and jeans, I encourage expressive profanity, and I have more tattoos than your average therapist. Most of my caseload is trauma and PTSD. Much of the trauma work involves complex trauma with co-occurring dissociation, personality disorders, substance abuse, and anger. My work with trauma clients includes adult and adolescent survivors of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, both active duty and retired military personnel, and first responders.

The way we feel, act, or react is not fully determined by external factors- regardless of the circumstances we are in, but also by our outlook on life and perspective toward specific situations. I believe in a collaborative therapeutic relationship that is provided in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I strive to support and assist clients on their journeys to create meaning in their lives, change or replace patterns of thinking and behaviors that are no longer working for them, develop greater self-awareness and deepen their relationships.

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.
