Have other therapists failed you? did you fail to make a connection? If you answered yes you are looking at the right profile. Life affects us all, we have good and bad experiences. At times our issues may affect our ability to get the most out of life. I provide a safe non-judgmental environment, allowing you to express yourself while offering feed-back. I am a firm believer that effective communication is essential to overcoming many challenges. I also work with clients struggling with anger management and am willing to work with people who are court-mandated. No offering virtual Video sessions online.

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.

Thank you for viewing my profile. I work with: seniors, adults, adolescents and children.

I have over 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents and their families, as well as individual adults, in independent practice, school and hospital settings. While I work with patients presenting with a wide range of issues and concerns I specialize in working with neurologically or developmentally 'atypical' children and adolescents - ADHD, learning disabilities, autism spectrum, etc. I often work with those neurodevelopmentally atypical children, adolescent and young adults who don't easily fit into these kinds of standard diagnostic categories. I look for and develop strengths, resiliencies and resources.

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.

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

Accepting new clients! Therapy is an experience that should be tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Throughout my practice, I have utilized an approach based in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCT). For those that require a more structured approach to counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness can be an essential way to gain control of negative thoughts and build coping skills to work through emotions. By providing a warm and calming atmosphere, my goal is to help my clients reach their true potential and know that they are not alone in this journey.

I see people with depression, anxiety, compulsive behaviors as well as traumatic histories and losses. Together, we will work to gain a deep understanding of your early and lifelong relationships, in which your struggles were formed. Additionally, I ask about how social, economic, gendered and racial issues frame your pain. I integrate a basic psycho-dynamic understanding integrated with trauma techniques, body work, hypnosis and cognitive behavioral work in individual and group therapy. Group therapy adds another layer of healing possibility through the camaraderie, clarity and empathy groups provide.

When we understand what is happening in our brain, and how we can expect to heal, we see hope. Though addiction of any kind is painful, it is manageable; we can be free. By learning to identify the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that may be holding us back, we can begin to let go of the bad, including trauma, and build in more good. If you are worried you may have a problem with alcohol, drugs, food addiction, gambling, or sexual imagery, or just want to break self-destructive habits and develop better ones, email me and we can schedule a phone call (free of charge) to talk about our work.

If you are considering therapy, it is likely that something significant in your life is not going the way you want it to, and you've not been able to change or resolve it on your own. It may be a troubled relationship, stress related to job/school/family situations, the lingering effects of past or recent traumas–or something else–and involve feelings of worry, sadness, anger, distrust, frustration, loneliness or low self-esteem. If you want things to be different, change is possible. Careful, attentive therapy can help you find relief from negative feelings, improve relationships and problem-solving, and build hope for the future.

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 Colonia and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
