I truly enjoy working with teens- this is a special developmental period that provides so much opportunity for growth and has an incredible impact on their adult futures.
Adolescence is a time of transition, transitioning from childhood to a young adult. Teens undergo rapid growth and development- hormonal, and cognitive changes occur. All these changes coupled with social pressures and emerging independence, can bring about normal and common distress, feelings of isolation, and a need to solidify an identity. Some teens even experience more severe distress and can develop mental health disorders.
I utilize evidenced-based approaches; CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, along with a true passion for working with this age group. I work with a variety of issues impacting teens.
- Impulse Control
- Low Self-Esteem
- Grief & Loss
- Suicidal Thoughts
- School Problems
- Substance Abuse
