Therapy for Adolescents
A Happier, Healthier You
I have an extensive background in working with children, teens and young adults that struggle with mental health challenges and trauma.
I create a therapy environment conducive to change- compassionate care and I strive to create a space where clients feel safe and seen for who they are. I work on my relationship and connection to my client in order to promote growth and support them in reaching their goals. And with attentive collaboration, clients experience a relief from painful symptoms. Supporting children, teens, young adults and families who want to grow through their current challenges, is my passion and commitment. Conditions addressed include depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, adolescence, attachment, and parenting struggles. I support, develop and enhance a variety of coping strategies to help clients feel present and manage stress responses.
I tailor my approach to fit my client’s needs; I use a client-centered approach, utilize attachment theory and have training in many modalities including, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative therapy, Solution Focused therapy, play therapy and sand tray therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and mindfulness. I am a Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional have completed trainings by leading trauma specialists including Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk , Dr. Bruce Perry and Janina Fisher and spent 4 years working in residential care as a practicing therapist and Mental Health Team Supervisor supporting youth and young adults who struggle with complex trauma, attachment difficulties and mental health needs. I have found the best way to connect with my clients is to be authentic and genuine. I look forward to being able to support and create meaningful change for you and your family.
