My Approach to Helping
When you are a parent of a struggling teen, you often find yourself asking what you can do to help to make them feel better. Sometimes you can feel helpless, or like you tried it all and you do not know what to do next. Their personality is different, they are making impulsive decisions and you worry things might get worse. Reaching out to a therapist may be a difficult decision to make. You could be worrying that you are not finding someone that connects with your teen and keeps you in the loop with care. Imagine both you and your teen feeling better and reaching out to each other when something is on your minds.
In an effort to get your teen back on track, I specialize in depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation, anger management, family conflict, divorce, behavioral difficulties, school performance issues and social skills, including peer conflict, and bullying. I offer the same services for adult clients.
To accommodate busy families, I offer evening and Saturday appointments. We will work together as a team to build a customized plan to get your teen back on track. I believe in a cooperative therapeutic environment that is safe, warm, and welcoming for both my teen and adult clients. Together we will reach your goals and find a path to success.
