"Having trouble with your teenager? Does your adolescent feel unmotivated, depressed, hopeless, anxious, or in need of greater self-confidence? Is your family experiencing a transition, loss, or other forms of trauma or uncertainty? Psychotherapy can help develop understanding, insight, and gain skills. As a licensed psychotherapist, I will support you and your child toward your goal of improving your well-being. Teens' needs are different from those of adults; they are still developing, and coping with the internal and external changes. I have nearly a decade of experience working with teens with severe emotional disturbance and their families."

"Hello! My name is Emily Linaman and I want to help you work with your strengths, and identify behaviors and patterns that may hold you back from growing into the best version of yourself. Old habits die hard, especially when they are related to past trauma survival skills and other coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. As I earn your trust, I hope we can explore how certain behaviors and habits lead to numbing out, depression, dissociation, isolation, self-sabotage and self-harm. Together, we can explore defense mechanisms, the functions they serve, and try out new coping skills to release you from the past and set you free."

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. 94523 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in 94523.
