Being a child or teen in today’s world is tough, and so is parenting! Although the world is changing fast, the needs of children and teens remain the same as previous generations. Children and teens need to feel love, security, and value. When children, teens, and young adults are having difficulty managing emotions, regulating behavior, and lacking a strong sense of self, it is often necessary to seek support. Parenting support and training is an integral part of my practice. I have been providing individual and family therapy to school-age children to young adults in Raleigh since 2001.

I believe that it is important to vent to a “professionally trained friend” outside of your normal circle to receive the proper intervention and assistance you need in order to progress & flourish. I view therapy as a ball of yarn being untangled where the yarn signifies your thoughts. Are you a mom, currently pregnant, or just recently given birth? You may have feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, depressed mood, and need whole health management. Are you a teen /young adult, or adult that needs to work through stress and anxiety, trauma, healthy relationships, set boundaries, or work on self-esteem? I am here to help you untangle.

Are you a “late bloomer” when it comes to dating and struggling to stay ahead in how to best navigate the process? Are you a teenager that struggles to communicate with your parents and feel like a burden? A teen that keeps your feelings ? A teen that keeps your feelings locked inside and struggles to give your self compassion?.
At times we may feel that there’s no one that can understand us or fear not looking like the “strong” friend. We struggle to talk about our emotions and often wear masks out of the belief that nothing will change. Do you struggle to take up space in conversations or in a room due to lack of confidence? Or constant feelings of inadequacy due to struggles in managing high expectations placed upon you? Are you a person that struggles to show your body love and compassion? Have you had a history of disordered eating and want to work towards unsubscribing from diet culture and embrace the skin you’re in?

When I was a defiant and moody adolescent , my parents sought therapy for me. The therapy room was place in which I felt understood. I was able to learn great insight into how I think and understanding others' perspectives. It was through that experience that I was inspired to create an environment for others that was both validating and encouraging. I try to establish a therapeutic relationship that enables each person to make progress with their goals, whether it be their self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, managing challenging emotions, or getting through an especially challenging life event.

Being a kid, teen , or young adult these days is pretty complicated, and parenting can certainly feel overwhelming at times! Sometimes, challenges show up that get in the way of the child or teen years being the carefree time of life that we want it to be. Sometimes, parents need a little support to help navigate unexpected issues that may arise in their families. Counseling can help during these times by providing a safe, trusted space to seek solutions, growth, and healing.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
