My approach:

I utilize a client-centered approach with adolescents and often use pop culture, media, music, art, and games as a way of connecting with adolescent clients. I incorporate mindfulness, dialectical behavioral, and cognitive behavioral therapies into my approach as well. In my work with teenagers, I often utilize a systemic approach and encourage family involvement. Family therapy may also be integrated into the treatment plan.

Some of the reasons adolescents come to my therapy practice are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • School Related Stress
  • Family Problems
  • Trauma
  • Peer Pressure
  • Distress around Relationships/Friendships
  • Transition to High School
  • Transition to College
  • Grief & Loss
  • Self-esteem
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Self harm
  • Body Image Issues
