Adolescents can be creative, interesting, passionate, kind, full of humor, and inspired; they can also be moody, impulsive, defensive, and withdrawn. It is often difficult to tell if these moods and behaviors are that of a typical tween or teen, or if your child is experiencing significant distress or mental health related issues. Whether they are experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression, or feeling overwhelmed with the tasks of navigating the world as a young person, therapy can help an adolescent gain confidence and skills in their ability to manage this stage of life. I have expertise in treating the following issues with adolescents:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Sexual identity/LGBTQ issues
  • Relationship challenges
  • Parent-Child conflict
  • Self-esteem
