I specialize in Adolescent treatment and Women's trauma. I have been working in mental health and addictions with adolescents and adults for over twelve years. I have experience in outpatient and residential settings and I'm skilled to work with complex issues. When someone asks me what I do, I have a difficult time boiling it down. More recently, I've come to realize that I help individuals and families in crisis. I work with the whole family, either in or out of my office and I help clients address core issues standing in the way of health, success and happiness.

I believe you and your child/ teen deserve a space of your own to make sense of what you’re experiencing.
Do you find yourself perplexed, unsure how to help your child, no matter what you do? You are a family who is navigating stress, a divorce, or big change. I know that your child’s wellbeing is everything to you. And yet, it’s hard to know how to best support them through this time. Your child is bright and you expect a lot from them. Lately a change in the family has caused problems and your child is acting differently. Communication and connection are harder than before, and you are craving the deep bond you used to feel with your child or teen . Let’s turn down the volume and get your child back on track.

People enter psychotherapy because they have a problem in living that they have been unable to solve. They have frequently exhausted the resources of friends and family and are unclear about how best to move their lives forward. My clinical experience over many years has taught me that focusing on the current version of the problems and exploring solutions that are meaningful and real is the way to move beyond where one is psychologically blocked. The goal is to reduce if not eliminate distress and to reach a better understanding of the ways in which such problems can be solved.

Crisis intervention, working with children in family transitions, adoption, senior issues and teaching social skills and emotional intelligence coaching are areas that can benefit from support.

Therapy can seem daunting and overwhelming if you have not experienced it or had a negative experience in the past. The most important part of therapy is establishing a trusting relationship with your therapist that allows you to feel comfortable, heard, and validated. In therapy (and in life), I take a strengths-based, growth stance. I truly believe you are doing your best AND you have room to grow. My place in the therapy room is to take the journey with you. I love helping adolescents and emerging adults with their identity exploration and helping them to be true and authentic to who they are (however that may apply to them).

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.
