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 also readily include parents and caregivers and involve them in treatment.

I have expertise in the following areas:

-school difficulty
-divorce and seperation
-identity development
-coping strategies
-emotional regulation
-time management
