**Tweens and Teens only/Sólo adolescentes y pre-adolescentes* You're tired of blank-stare professionals who treat your kid like they're a diagnosis and not a unique human being. You're ready for a therapist who can relate equally to you and your tween/teen. You've sat across the table as well-meaning professionals described your child as "defiant" and "disrespectful." You may be feeling this way about them too. You're ready for something different. Quick fixes have only gotten you so far and your family is ready for emotionally transformative experience. This is where I come in.

You feel like your anxiety is getting the best of you and feel like you no longer have control over your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. You are noticing that even when you try to take a break and focus on yourself, that your breath catches in your chest and then you feel it…the anxiety. You have a difficult time sleeping at night because you worry about the course of events that took place that day and the laundry list of things you have to do tomorrow. Worries such as: “Did I make a mistake at work?” “What did that person think of me?” “Am I being a good Partner/Parent/Friend” swirl like a tornado in your mind.

At times, we do not realize the meaning of events that may have affected our lives in powerful ways. Therapy offers an opportunity to talk about ourselves and about our difficulties or distress in a manner that allows us to understand the meaning of what we have experienced and what is happening to us. Why are things not going my way? Why I’m feeling so anxious or so sad? Why do I behave like this or keep doing the same things? What should I do? Is this who I am or what I want in life?
