As a parent, you've noticed a change where your child 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 child or 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 knack for connecting with youth who are shy or reserved, considered "defiant" or "oppositional," or have difficulty trusting people. It's all about connection for teens and adults alike, and I join people by connecting with interests like memes, anime, video games, geeky interests and music, and use those as metaphors and a vehicle 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 reach out to schedule a free 20 minute consultation to see if I am the right fit to support your teen. I work with teens 12+ and adults.

I use Narrative Therapy which allows you to challenge the stories you've been told, because there isn't one way to do things, and allows you to rewrite your life's story with you as the author. Geek Therapy offers the wisdom and possibility of many worlds and characters to lend strength and creativity on your journey. With Brainspotting you can heal the longstanding wounds logic can't seem to mend
