I don't believe that adolescents are broken and need to be fixed, they need to be healed I will create an emotionally safe environment, a place where you are accepted with out judgement. This is the corner stone of developing trust. Therapy is a personal journey, one that I am honored to be a part of. I have after school and Sunday hours. I do 90 minute sessions for 125.00

.I also believe that parents need to participate as needed I utilize assessments.To understand if a higher level of care is needed as well as a the possibly of needing medication.

. I have specialized in treating adolescents and young adults for 18 years. This is a unique population that requires an in depth knowledge of their worlds and psychological development. I use my knowledge, understanding and experience to create a therapeutic relationship that will build trust. This is when the healing begins..

Who Am I, Strengthening Sense of Self

The lack of Identity has become an escalating problem with adolescents. In the world of social media important life skills are not being developed, such as communication, conflict resolution, relationships,, The fear of being rejected is forming a generation who are developing masks to project how they want their peers to perceive them while hiding who they really are. This group is about taking off the mask and being supported for who they really The members of this group will be separated by age.. If interested please call 484-886-9760
