Teens

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.

Including:

  • Defiance/Rebelliousness
  • Anger
  • Impulse Control
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Grief & Loss
  • Divorce
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • School Problems
  • Substance Abuse
  • Relationships
  • PTSD
