The therapists at United Action for Youth have a unique ability to engage teenagers in individual adolescent psychotherapy. They balance listening with talking; they don't lecture or blame; they tailor their style to increase the youth's comfort. UAY therapists have expertise in the areas that are common concerns for teens, parents, and young adults. Although our focus is serving youth 10-25, we can also provide services for adults if space is available.

I have openings this week. Contact me to get started on getting better. Is your child or teen feeling emotional, worked up, easily upset, reactive to small things, alone, or helpless? Is your child arguing with you or hard to talk to but you don't know why? You're not alone in this and figuring out how to help the ones we love the most can be difficult and confusing. Whether your child is experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, bullying, social isolation, or adjustment issues, things can get better with the right help and support. If you've tried to help your child and you're stuck, then it's time to give therapy a try.

**Full as of 2/7/2022** Living in a society that prioritizes physical health over mental well-being, we are often led to believe that our psychological health doesn’t matter. We are taught very early on that when things get hard and difficult emotions bubble up, we need to suck it up, put on a smile, and move on. This stigma leaves many of us without space to process the complex struggles we encounter throughout our lives. Therapy creates that space. No concern is too big or too small to work through in session together. Your life and your struggles matter.

**NO OPENINGS AT THIS TIME** I enjoy helping clients create rich and meaningful lives. I specialize in individual therapy with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, eating disorders, adjustments to life stressors, and more. I also love working with artists and creative people. I primarily use the Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) Model with clients, an evidence-based model that stems out of cognitive behavioral therapy, and the idea that our thoughts, emotions and behaviors are closely connected. Clients learn many skills related to mindfulness, radical acceptance, and self-compassion.

My ideal client is commited to personal growth. I believe we are all fragile creatures, yet capable of resilience. We experience painful thought/feeling states and then we weave stories to explain them. Narrative Therapy has been a natural fit for me: the client defines the goals, we examine the details of self-limiting stories, including family and cultural "scripts." We work to co-create stories about identity that have more space for possibilities and emotional resilience.

I have provided clinical social work services in human service agencies, hospitals and outpatient clinics since 1986. To address the broad spectrum of populations and needs in these locations, I have received specialized training in Solution-Focused Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, EMDR, and Marital/Family Therapy. At the same time, I know that the most important factor is not technical expertise; unless the client feels safe and understood, therapy can't get started! I enjoy developing collaborate relationships with clients, and then selecting an integrated approach tailored to meet their unique needs.

As a mother, grandmother, teacher and former family and divorce mediator, I am sensitive to finding the right words to soothe, comfort and connect with others so that each person feels heard, understood and valued. In therapy I will help you recognize, accept, investigate and nurture your feelings. From this connected place your interactions with others will reflect your heart instead of your threatened brain. My approach is based on the science of neurobiology, the wisdom of Buddhist philosophy, a dose of humor, and the warmth we generate together.

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