Adolescent Psychotherapy

My work with adolescents focuses on developing their unique strengths, interests and increasing their independent critical thinking. Through individual psychotherapy or within a school setting, teens develop and explore their own opinions, learn social and refusal skills or learning to say “no” to peers when it is appropriate. I encourage teens to explore their thoughts and feelings and evaluate issues surrounding substance use, sexuality, body image, relationship building, and conflict and feelings management. I teach teens how to manage anxiety, anger, stress and depression. I also work with adolescents in crisis who are healing from trauma, transitions, grief and loss.
