Contact me for a free phone consultation to discuss a plan for helping your teen .
Are you concerned that your child is worrying too much or their sadness is overwhelming them? It is painful to see your child nervous, isolated, unhappy, and alone. You may be worried that your teen is hurting but they will not open up to you. You know your teen should be active and engaged in a social life but they spend most of their time at home or on their electronic devices. Maybe your home life has become stressful and consumed with conflict and stress. You are sure that therapy is a good idea but you have no idea on how to convince them to try it out.

Thank you for visiting my page! I work with teens (ages 12+), college students, and young adults. Have you noticed that your teen seems unusually down, withdrawn, or defeated? Are you concerned that your child is constantly worrying about what others think or has become highly self-critical? Maybe you just can't shake the feeling that something is bothering your teen but they won't open up to you. So many young people try to cope with their emotions and problems on their own, yet they haven't learned the life skills to do so effectively. They need a safe space to open up, feel truly heard, and to build up their resources.

“I’m at my wits end.” “That was the last straw.” “I can’t take it anymore.” “I need help." Have you ever uttered those words, or something similar? You aren’t alone. Dealing with life’s challenges can sometimes be hard. It could be seeing your child or teen struggle with behavioral issues in school and/or home and not knowing how to help. There could be external or internal struggles causing problems in your marriage or within the family. Maybe you can't figure out what is causing such worry for your child or teen because they don't talk to you.

I have worked with immigrant populations for nine years addressing issues that include trauma, domestic violence, parent-child relational, family reunification, at risk adolescent behavior, anger management, youth substance use, gang prevention, sex trafficking prevention, academic underachievement, anxiety, and depression.
For many immigrants, emigrating to the United States can be an exciting experience filled with anticipation, hope, and the start of a new chapter in their life. However, this experience can also bring with it challenges such as acculturative stress, anxiety, depression, and new and old trauma. At times, it is difficult to know how to address these challenges. Seeing a therapist is usually the first step to getting the support and guidance needed to successfully navigate stressors related to acculturation.

I am a Certified Clinical Child & Adolescent Anxiety Treatment Professional.
It can be difficult under normal circumstances to know when to seek outside help for your child. If your child is experiencing distress or engaging in behaviors that are interfering with their ability to participate successfully in life, then you are on the right track in seeking additional support. I work in collaboration with children and the adults in their life to help target goal areas and provide practical support. As a licensed school psychologist I have a range of experience working with children and adolescents in support of their social, emotional, learning, and behavioral needs in private and public school settings.

As a systemic and attachment-based therapist, I believe we are all looking for connection, belonging, and acceptance. However old we are – infant, child, teen , or adult – we need to make sense of what happens to us, inside of us, and in our relationships. Our life experiences shape us in profound ways; our sense of self, and how we manage emotions, respond to stress and connect with others. When life experiences are adverse, our body and brain can make meaning in ways that can cause distress. I help clients connect with their innate ability to change and heal difficult experiences so they can find peace and self-worth at any age.

I have been working with youth and families for over 20 years. I believe each client is unique and deserves a tailored approach to treatment. My style is direct, compassionate and creative, allowing me to connect with clients that others have found difficult to reach. I often draw upon alternative interventions (equine therapy, recreation, sand tray, music, writing, and art) to reach clients resistant to more traditional forms of therapy. I wrote "Wild at Heart: Adolescents, Horses & Other Kindred Spirits" as a means for offering a helpful perspective and effective strategies for parents dealing with the challenging teen years.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Fairfax and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
