Maintaining mental health can be just as challenging as the consistency needed for maintaining physical health. Everyone has unique strengths, struggles and life situations. Working with a counselor who can show up without judgement to explore emotions and behaviors plays a vital role in healing. Life can get messy with past traumas and present stressors getting in the way of successful movements toward growth and improvement. It is my goal as your counselor to partner with you and help with that navigation, to provide a space for you to break down and build up your thoughts, emotions, and actions.

Are you experiencing racing thoughts that tell you, "You're not good enough" or "Why even try, nothing will ever change!" Have you ever felt exhausted fighting those thoughts by yourself, that you gave in and began to feel as if you were a different person? The things you loved to do before, don't seem as rewarding. You begin to spend less time with those you love, isolating yourself because "They'll be better off without me." What we think or feel about ourselves will manifest in our behaviors. Sometimes, we are unaware of what is going on. Deep down, you want help but unsure of the steps you need to take towards healing.

As a professional counselor, I believe in the power of each individual to overcome barriers that prevent their life pathway from taking a more positive direction. I am invested in creating a calm and safe haven where growth and improvement can occur. Using a person-centered approach requires understanding the perspective patients have about issues in their lives to foster open, honest communication within a therapeutic relationship. When people feel comfortable expressing their emotions, an effective counselor is able to gain knowledge of how that person views their problems.

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.
