I believe you have have an inner strength that often goes unrecognized. Awareness of that inner strength will allow you to overcome the barriers that have prevented you from moving forward and improving your current situation. As your therapist I will assist you to take control of your therapy and explore the stressors and concerns in your life. I have experience working in adolescent outpatient settings, group homes and therapeutic foster care. I spent the last several years working with adult clients in outpatient settings who are in need of addictions counseling, domestic violence, depression, mood disorders, grief and loss, and crisis intervention.

Whether this describes you or your teen daughter, I know how scary it can feel to face these thoughts - and, often, the self-destructive behaviors that accompany them.
Your inner critic says things like "Why can't you just stop doing this to yourself? You know this is all your fault." It also slides in with comments like "Why even bother....you're never going to be good enough anyway." and "Look at yourself. Why would anyone want to be with someone like you?" Sometimes you want to scream, and other times you just want to cry. Often, you find yourself missing out on friendships and social events because they don't fit in with your latest eating plan, or you're too down on yourself to be around anyone else. You find yourself feeling angry, lonely, and, sometimes, scared. It's not who you want to be.

Our passion is to help you heal and grow in order to fully live the life God created you for. Life can be difficult and there are many things that happen that are out of our control. Sometimes it is a diagnosis like anxiety, ADHD, or depression but other times it is too much stress, a life transition, or difficult relationships that causes hardship or pain. Maybe you do not even know what exactly the problem is. Or maybe you are doing fine but want to grow into your best version. While we cannot change what is out of our control, there is so much we can do and there is always hope no matter how you are feeling right now.

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.
