I have specialized in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and primarily work with adolescent and adults addressing issues related to anxiety, perfectionism, trauma, relationship difficulties, rigid thinking, and post-adoption adjustment.
**All appointments will be held via telehealth/video session until further notice** Have you felt that despite your efforts you continue to feel anxious or unable to stop worrying? Perhaps you have unsuccessfully tried to make some changes and feel stuck? I believe that our thoughts directly influence our feelings and behaviors. Together, we can work to collaboratively identify your strengths to foster a sense of self-awareness and create new perspectives. By understanding your thinking styles and formulating a plan specifically tailored to YOU, we can face those challenges and overcome fears.

“If they say one more racist thing.” “I feel so stressed, it's like I can’t do anything right” “Things have been kind of rough and I keep getting into bad relationship cycles with friends, family, and lovers.” Often, life's stressors can become overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Relationships may feel disconnected, sex and intimacy may be nonexistent or you may be burned out from work, or like the family dynamics are off! Unresolved trauma may be affecting your mental health, or maybe you feel stuck in cycles of worry, sadness or hopelessness. Let me help you to get out of the cycle and move back into YOUR BEST SELF!

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.
