I have experience working with the adolescent and adult populations in PHP/IOP levels of care along with clients in an outpatient setting, dealing with anxiety, depression, bipolar, addiction, personality disorders, and psychosis, to name a few.
Life can be hectic at times, and will lead us to prioritize anything and everything else before ourselves. There may be times where we feel lost and unsure of what to do. This can be an overwhelming feeling and may lead us to question who we are and what makes up our identity. By entering the journey that is therapy, you will be able to finally prioritize getting to know yourself; your likes and dislikes, triggers and strengths, as well as developing the wisdom to become A Better You.

Wouldn't it be great if you could find a therapist your teenager would be able to open up to? By learning how to express and manage difficult feelings and stressful situations they can improve their mood, behavior, and functioning.
After online school and missing friends, then masked socializing and more social distancing, teens are feeling frustrated, anxious, and exhausted! Even the smartest, most confident, and outgoing of them are struggling with what to do, how to move forward in the world, and look toward the future with hope and optimism. As their parent, you've offered support, encouragement, and empathy, but they just seem to be isolating, withdrawing, and frankly, getting depressed. They need help, and you want to find someone who is objective, understands today's younger population, and can help them get back on track.

As an experienced child/ adolescent & trauma therapist, I believe that providing a safe space to meet your child's needs helps provide a healing environment and builds confidence.
You want to be a supportive parent, but deep down you are struggling when you see your child isolating, withdrawn or angry. You may be fed up with feeling helpless, stuck or frustrated with your child. You might not even remember a time things didn't feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you're ready to improve your relationship with your child. You're ready to get them the help they need. Most of all you're ready to be there for them while they learn the tools they need to feel better again

I feel the ideal client is anyone who is seeking help. With that in mind, we need to remember that accepting help also means being open to change. Treatment needs to be about accepting that the way we have been doing things hasn't been working.

Life is sometimes a difficult process especially when a partner or child needs, but doesn't want therapy. It can become very painful for yourself or the loved one whose behavior is affecting the whole family. You may even be combing these ads trying to sort out where to start. Sometimes you need someone who knows how to allow a person to open up in their own time. Someone who can work with them through their fears. I have experience in: Child Therapy, Addressing resistance, Mandated clients and LGBTQ concerns. I utilize a variety of techniques toward this aim including EMDR and Play (Sandtray) therapy.

I help couples communicate effectively so that both partners can listen without getting defensive, see each other's point of view and feel appreciated. You’re probably wondering whatever happened to the person you fell in love with. Where is that person who understood your every need? Do you even remember the last time your partner tried to understand your point of view? You would even settle for a little empathy. And why does every little thing have to turn into an argument? You’ve tried everything you can think of to make your relationship work.

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. Finding a teen therapist in Clark and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
