As a parent myself, I know that children and teens often need a different approach to therapy than adults.
People ask me, "When is it time to see a therapist?" I don't know anyone who can say everything in their lives is going well all the time. We all have challenges from time to time, but you don't have to go through them alone. I'm here to help you use your strengths to keep what is going right, and help you find your strengths to fix when things are going wrong. I specialize in working with children, teens, young adults, and families. I bring warmth, empathy, and a touch of playfulness and creativity to my work. You can hear me speak more about my approach and counseling philosophy here: http://bit.ly/podcastdrjm

Parenting is challenging.
Is your child’s worry causing you to worry? Could your teen's “acting out” or behavioral issues be caused by anxiety, depression, or some underlying issue that you may not be aware of? Many children and teens struggle to manage symptoms on a daily basis. This often results in poor school performance, issues with peer relationships, family discord, and other behavioral concerns. If you’re at a loss or feeling frustrated, therapy can be a helpful way to gain an understanding of why a child may be struggling. You and your child can then learn various ways to cope with stressors. Call me for a free initial phone consultation.

From the outside, your life looks wonderful. But somehow, it doesn’t feel wonderful at all. Everything in your life seems fine except for you. You are walled off from your feelings. It’s hard to connect to yourself and even harder to connect to other people. When asked what you want or what you feel, you have no idea. At times, you feel a deep emptiness, as if you’re hollow inside. When in a crowd, you feel lonelier than you do when you're by yourself. When things go wrong, you blame yourself so harshly that it’s downright mean.

Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.
