Are you worried about your teenager and need a counselor who can connect with them on their level? When a young person is struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, cutting, or suicidal thoughts, they need a counselor who they can trust and like enough to believe that help is possible. Counseling takes work and vulnerability, it is critical that a person feel accepted and comfortable in order to learn new coping skills to grow and overcome problems.
I can help your teenager feel comfortable and safe to address their problems and improve their mood. I work collaboratively with parents and families to support growth and change. Using a combination of CBT, DBT, and Play Therapy techniques, I teach coping skills to feel better, communicate clearer, and improve self-worth and confidence.
Counseling children requires specific training and experience. I am trained in Play Therapy which is a developmentally-appropriate counseling approach for working with young children. Play therapy is a great way to engage resistant and hesitant children and adolescents in a counseling relationship designed to meet their unique needs.
