Adolescents

In working with adolescents, I find it important to be a trusting adult in their life and provide an environment where they will feel comfortable to open up.  I take a low-pressure approach and show attentiveness towards their interests and hobbies.  With teens, I engage in talk therapy as well as mindfulness and yoga.  I use supportive, behavioral, and cognitive behavioral therapy methods.  I am approachable and open-minded when working with adolescents and their families.  I feel strongly about including parents and caregivers in our work together.

I have expertise in the following areas:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma(PTSD)
  • Communication
  • Self-harm
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Goal-setting
  • School difficulty
  • Divorce and separation
  • Identity development
  • Coping strategies and self-regulation
  • Bullying
  • Abuse
  • Emotional regulation
  • Time management
