Your child is a unique individual who does have strengths. Right now it may be hard for you to recognize those strengths. Adolescence can be a difficult time for the child and the parents. Maybe your teen has been given a mental health diagnosis or perhaps her school has suggested she talk to a therapist.
The adolescents and young adults I work with find confidence talking things out in session and learning new and different ways to cope. In therapy, clients learn to use the tools needed to reframe distressing situations. I teach mindfulness techniques including yoga poses, meditation and other activities that can bring you or your child back to “the here and now”. Incorporating mindfulness into a daily routine can improve distress tolerance, increase concentration and decrease anxiety.

Who do I work with?
I primarily work with adolescents and young women dealing with life transitions. I truly enjoy the work I do with teen girls who are struggling with social anxiety and low self-esteem. Additionally, I love helping women in their twenties or recent college grads who feel stuck.
The clients in my practice are often struggling with mental health concerns like mood disorders, including but not limited to bipolar disorder and depression, anxiety disorders, and unhealthy coping patterns.
I will see children as young as 10 struggling with changes in behavior, anxiety and other mental health concerns.
