Take a look at the services I offer, and get in touch with me today.
Therapy for Teenagers
Teenagers today are dealing with a multitude of complex issues impacting their health and well being, leading to mental health concerns. During this time, teens are faced with developing their identities, academic and social challenges at school and deciding how they want to spend their careers and adult lives.
Making big decisions about what to study, moving away from home, learning how to be independent, navigating social media and intimate relationships can cause anxious and depressive symptoms. In therapy, teenagers will learn how to develop and utilize coping skills to help them make emotionally informed decisions about their future.
Therapy with teenagers requires parental involvement. Client's parents will be asked to join the session every 4-6 weeks for an extended family session.
Therapy for Young Adults
Psychotherapy is a powerful tool for growth. In therapy, we will work collaboratively to address areas of concern that brought you into treatment. Together, we will process difficulties in your life which have caused distress and find solutions to a happier, healthier you. Using proven techniques in cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness we will work to challenge unproductive thoughts, manage your emotions, and change unhealthy habits. By exploring thoughts, feelings and behaviors, you can develop and utilize coping skills to help you overcome any negativity.
