Being a child or adolescent today is more complicated than ever (as is being a parent).
The hardest part of instigating change in our lives is taking that first step. Whatever has led you to this first step, I am confident that I can be of service and support as we work together towards the changes and goals that you are looking for in your life or the lives of your family.

Life can unravel when you have stress or trauma in your life. It can be overwhelming when your children are acting out, your teen is being suspended or involved with law enforcement, or your younger child won't stop misbehaving at school. These family situations are all stressful and can feel overwhelming to anyone. My passion is to help parents and teens through traumatic or stressful experiences.

where I provide outpatient services along with volunteering for Heads Up Guidance Services and working in youth/ adolescent acute & residential treatment.
As a Filipina, I understand the difficulties and stigma of being vulnerable with a stranger and being open to one’s personal difficulties. Have you ever felt like you needed extra support and are unsure of who you can reach out and talk to? Or better yet, felt as though no one understands the struggle of being "you"? This is why as a therapist and an Asian American, I strive to create a safe and inviting environment for my client in order to break the stigma surrounding mental health. By using a psychodynamic and eclectic approach, I assist my clients by meeting them at their current level and need. My counseling background has

My name is Savanah and you read that correctly, my name is spelled with only one N and my parents told me it was because we couldn’t afford both. I grew up in a family that had a lot of the right ingredients (like warmth and humor) but didn’t have some of the tools that would have made home life a whole lot easier for us all. So, I became a Marriage and Family Therapist because families are where we can experience a lot of pain and frustration, but also tremendous healing. On an individual level, I know the relief of breaking free from from behaviors and thoughts that keep us in the exhausting cycle of pain and confusion.

Change! It is the one thing in life that is constant, yet certain. And we all go through changes: relationships, self-image, family conflicts, motivation, trauma, anxiety, physical wellness, etc. Change has definitely been a love and equally a frustration of mine that I choose to embrace for better or worse. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist detangling problems through promotion of healthy living holistically presents an opportunity for growth, and providing eclectic, collaborative, and solution focused approaches that will support you in conquering the idea of being comfortable with being uncomfortable...aka Change!

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.
