Announcement icon Specializing in working with teens and adults. Providing sessions exclusively via teletherapy. Monday availability.
As a parent or caregiver, you've noticed a change where your tween, adolescent or teen just isn't the way they used to be. Their smile is gone and they're more to themselves, stressed, unmotivated, anxious, sad, or angry and you know something has to change. You know they often feel misunderstood, are quiet, sensitive, don't easily trust adults, or have seen so many therapists they couldn't make progress with and you're not sure they will open up. You need someone to connect with your teen, join their world, and support them in regaining happiness and stability to meet their goal of having a happy, hopeful and successful life.
I have a great track record of connecting with youth who are shy or reserved, defiant or oppositional, or have difficulty trusting adults and talking to providers. It's all about connection with youth, and I join their world by connecting with their interests--memes, anime, video games, geeky interests, music--and use those metaphors to work towards change.
It's hard knowing that times are tough for your teen, though taking the step to find something that can help is such a strength and testament to how much you care about them and the first step towards change. Feel free to call or send me an email to schedule a free 20 minute consultation to see if I am the right fit. Also seeing adults via teletherapy.
