The teen years are critical for building strong foundations.
Are you noticing any of these issues with your child?: Anxiety, stress, low motivation, lack of confidence, poor self control, body image issues, poor time management, poor decision making, academic problems, parent- teen problems, failure to excel, & more. These are real issues teens face. And although there are times it seems like they are happy, you as a parent know there is something wrong. You are worried about your child. You find yourself up late thinking about what will happen if things continue this way. You are right to be concerned. If not addressed these can lead to unhappiness, broken relationships, anxiety, depression

My own story ultimately led me into the field of counseling. Growing up in an alcoholic family system, I quickly learned to live my life for everyone else and become what everyone needed me to be in order to feel valued and loved. It wasn’t until my own marriage hit a crisis point that landed me in therapy, that I began to discover who I was and why I do the things I do. The healing I received in the process was so life-changing for me, it birthed in me a dream to help other people experience hope and healing.

In the therapy room, I love working with folks who find that they are struggling to fit in and connect with others - folks who might not feel that they have someone who GETS them. Maybe you feel like the black sheep of your family. Maybe you feel like you stand out in your community in some way. Perhaps you're ready to make some changes and feel nervous about how the new you will be accepted. I'm here to be a support and a guide, when needed, as you begin your new journey. Additionally, I love working with women and parents, with folks trying to learn how to live lives more true to their core values, and with folks in relationship.

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.
