Sometimes the demands of childhood and teen years are more than kids (and parents!) can handle. Problems in childhood not only affect children and teens, but their families too. I consider myself a partner in the change process as I help individuals or families work through whatever is troubling them. I have specific training in working with children, teens and families. I work with clients by first understanding their needs and pull from a variety of interventions and methods in order to best serve my clients. I work collaboratively with clients and aim to go at a pace which is comfortable, yet conducive to progress.

My specialties include childhood behavior, parent/child conflict, teen issues, conflict resolution, adolescent and adult trauma, depression, and anxiety.
Healing starts the moment you begin to feel someone is listening. Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, or lost? Are you struggling with traumatic experiences, relationship issues, stress at home, stress at work or in your social life? Through the therapeutic process, I can offer insight and skills to allow for hope and healing by helping my clients recognize their own strengths to regain peace within their lives. I have dedicated my work to helping others learn to heal. I am here to offer compassion, understanding and resolution to your most difficult problems.

My focus as a Toledo mental health therapist is helping people face challenges head-on. I work with families who have a loved one experiencing dementia, professionals confronted with difficult career or ethical decisions, and clients struggling with PTSD. Other areas of interest include working with artists (musicians, visual artists, writers), helping family members repair damaged relationships, and guiding young adults struggling to find their way. What makes therapy successful is the relationship between the counselor and the client. When that is clicking, change happens and growth starts.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
