Adolescence is a challenging time for many teens and their families, and it is a critical time for everyone. The course charted in the teen years significantly defines life possibilities and opportunities down the road. Therapy can be very effective in helping teens to succeed in school, manage their stress effectively, develop positive relationships with parents and peers, avoid risky behaviors, and learn to make good decisions without outside help. Together, I work with adolescents to not only resolve current issues in their lives but also put them on course to avoid potential pitfalls, with the goal of providing them with a positive attitude and coping skills for many years to come. I use a down-to-earth style that most adolescents find more relatable than that of traditionally trained therapists.
I work with adolescents with the following concerns:
Anxiety and stress
Trauma, PTSD and abuse
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Adjustment to major life changes
Screen time issues
Stress with high functioning adolescents
Loss and grief
