Teen/Adolescent Therapy

Teenagers face a host of changes…physical, emotional, and social. They deal with raging hormones, peer pressure, and fears about their future at the same time they are struggling to find their identity and their place in the world. They must also juggle and navigate the world of stress and academic pressure, body image issues, social media and belonging, relationships and break-ups, shifting family dynamics, parental expectations, and their own narratives and self-talk. This can lead to much confusion, overwhelming emotions, difficulty making decisions, and harmful coping strategies.

It’s a normal phase of development for teens to begin exploring and asserting their own identities, but it can be hard…for them and for their parents. They often need guidance and an outside, objective person to help them sort through their world and find their authentic path.

I can help. I have worked with teens and adolescents for many years as an educator, a workshop and retreat leader, youth leader, parent, and therapist. I know the beauty…and challenge… of their inner world and the world of their parents.

The therapeutic relationship is the key to transformation and successfully meeting therapy goals. I provide a safe, open, and nonjudgmental space where teens can feel understood and comfortable to discuss things they might otherwise keep hidden. I am both down-to-earth and expressive and bold…just like they are.  We will use a variety of tools…talk, play, humor, movement, expressive arts, and media. Each case is different, and therapy is adjusted to meet the needs of each adolescent.
