Your teen doesn’t know what they want, and neither do you. The conflicts seem constant, and they’re just never happy. They have anxiety creeping over them like so many bugs, and it seems like they’re so depressed you have the pry them out of bed with a crowbar.

As a Child & Adolescent Therapist with over 10 years of experience, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of children and teens experiencing a wide variety of emotional and behavioral health challenges. I am also passionate in my work providing support and training to parents. Perhaps your child is struggling at home, at school or socially. Perhaps your teenager is experiencing strong emotions and when you try to reach out and provide support, it doesn't seem to help. Perhaps you are a parent and you feel like you have tried everything to manage your child's difficult behaviors, but nothing seems to be working.

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who once said that, "What lies behind us and what lies before us matters little compared to what lies within us". For more than 30 years I have focused on helping children and adults, individually, in couples, in families and groups achieve strength, peace and confidence by improving conflict resolution, communication, stress and anxiety, anger management skills, child and adolescent behavioral problems, and parenting skills as well as improved functioning and decreased emotional distress related to depression, self-esteem, post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorders. Through a combination of interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral and motivational approaches I have seen my clients make meaningful and lasting transformations in both emotional and behavioral dimensions. I provide evidence-based, focused, and time-limited treatment with documented results for mental health, behavioral health and substance use issues.

Teen issues: depression, anxiety, self-harm and self-esteem have been a focus.
My ideal client is someone whom is struggling in life and motivated to seek help and make the changes necessary in their thoughts, beliefs or circumstances to get back into wellness. I enjoy working with teens. Most of my career has been with at risk youth. I also work with women's issues, addressing underlying causes of stress and overwhelm. I use Imago and Gottman approaches with couples. When working with men, we discuss the need for vulnerability and self-acceptance. Anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss can all be successfully addressed with psychotherapy.

As parents, we've all had those "WTF" moments. Maybe your child is acting out or their mood seems to have more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. Sure, it comes with the territory of raising kids, but when they start to happen more often, we might feel confused, frustrated, or worried. That's where therapy for your child or teen can help! You want a therapist that can connect with your child and help them function and feel better. You want a therapist that will listen and see you for who you are: a caring and loving parent that is trying their best. You want a therapist that can help your family feel less stressed and overwhelmed.

I have spent my career specializing in child/ adolescent therapy, but enjoy working with people of all ages! I have great interest in working with individuals with PTSD, and teens/adults who cope with pain using alcohol, drugs or self-harm.
A therapist has three jobs: to listen, to teach and to instill hope. I'd be grateful for the opportunity to do those things for you. I consider myself a "guardian of potential"-I see people beyond the problems that bring them to my office and for who they really are. I have the ability to "reach the unreachable". You may be nervous about trying therapy for the first time, or you may have had bad experiences in the past, but I believe in the power of human connection and I believe you no longer have to live in the pain or circumstances you've been in. The time for change has arrived!

The emphasis of my clinical work is in pediatric assessments including neuropsychological evaluations. I specialize in providing individually-tailored, extensive examinations of symptoms, development, and functioning in order to better understand each child or adolescent . Thus, the goal is not to arrive at a standardized diagnosis, but to achieve a deeper insight into each person's distinct biopsychosocial makeup. The most enjoyable aspect of assessment work is being able to provide children and families with clarifying "ah ha" moments, in order to help them make better sense and successes of their lives.

For 35 years, I've been honored to offer my clients an experience that combines expertise, collaboration, and creativity. Whether it is a new problem, an ongoing pattern, or an unexpected life crisis, your therapy is built on a trusting relationship to facilitate lasting change. I help clients have happier, more satisfying relationships, overcome depression and anxiety, manage worries about career, family, and friends. Some learn how to have a productive disagreement, how to show empathy, how to set boundaries, and how to ask for what they need. Others learn to take the steps forward while healing from painful events and trauma.

Brene Brown says that shame can only exist in a vacuum – real healing comes from sharing, connecting, and being met with total acceptance towards whatever is causing you pain or holding you back. Whatever brings you to seek therapy, I’ll meet you there with warmth, compassion, laughter, and a promise to see the you who exists beyond the struggles and pain that have brought you to this point. My clients often come to work with me when they’re looking to learn how to navigate times of transition, find ways to cope, and bring joy and purpose back to their lives.

I view my clients as unique individuals. I help them identify their strengths and build on them to solve their core concerns. In my practice, bolstering a client's motivation for change is important. I provide accountability and support during the tough times--knowing that we all have challenges and choices in our lives. I am very well suited to working with LGBTQi persons and those with all levels of ability. I treat many concerns, however, I specialize in anxiety concerns and trauma (PTSD). I also work with those who struggle with Personality Disorders.

Let's suppose you met your divine self at this very moment! Your divine self is the one that expresses your soul's light through words, thoughts, actions, and all that you are within. What would your divine self say about having the opportunity to explore some of the experiences that may have caused a tornado within, maybe, even a feeling of being lost. You matter and you are important. I believe in you and I want to show you that, but, I would like to give you a brief background about me and my work first.

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.
