I help teens and young adults who are struggling with relationships, loneliness, self-hate, and the transition to adulthood. If you're a teenager or the parent of one, you're experiencing the difficulty of this stage of life. During adolescence we must not only navigate the drama of peer relationships, but also figure out our own place in the world while remaining connected to family. It's not uncommon for teens to experience anxiety and depression as they struggle to make meaning and find purpose.
Therapy helps teens and young adults by providing them with a safe space of their own. My goal is to create a caring and compassionate therapy environment that allows clients to express all parts of themselves. I help teens and young adults get in touch with their feelings and needs while learning how to communicate with others and develop empathy for other perspectives.
During the therapy process I work with parents to keep them informed through regular parent guidance sessions. If you'd to explore the possibility of working together please feel free to contact me for a free initial phone consultation.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I know, from experience, that starting therapy can be an intimidating and daunting process. It's natural to think that the therapist has it all figured out and is somehow a more advanced human being. Trust me - I've been there.
Yet, what is important to realize is that we therapists are people too. Many of us decided to become helpers because we've experienced our own adversities. My own life struggles (especially in high school!) and personal therapy have absolutely informed and guided my decision to become a therapist and the way I work with clients.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
In the therapy process it is very important that you trust and feel comfortable with your therapist. Research consistently shows that the quality of the therapist-client relationship is a primary factor in whether you'll experience positive outcomes in therapy.
An effective therapist-client alliance should be collaborative. That is, it's important for you to have a say in the process and how therapy proceeds. While the therapist has education, training, and licensing, you are the expert on your life. Therefore, therapy should focus on exploring areas of your life you'd like help with. Also, the process should proceed at your own pace; you shouldn't feel pushed into disclosing anything that feels uncomfortable. At the same time, its important that your therapist is able to receive and accept what you say - even if it's traumatic in nature.
