Cultivating positive strategies for growth and change.

I devote a significant portion of my practice to providing therapy for teens and young adults, facilitating a non-judgemental sounding board and acting as an approachable source of information, tools and perspective.

Therapy For Teens & Young Adults

What can sometimes be difficult to share or process with a parent or close adult can be much easier to discuss with an adult more removed from the situation or dynamic. I aim to fill this role in my practice and provide a secure and helpful environment in which young people can be honest about what is bothering them. As a result, they can more effectively create ways to manage overwhelm and stress.

Using an integrative approach to meet each patient where they are most comfortable, I incorporate techniques from various therapeutic modalities, such as psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), internal family systems therapy (IFS), and interpersonal therapy (IPT). Ultimately, I want to help young people better understand and know themselves and, in doing so, develop a toolkit of strategies they can use to independently manage their mental health over time.

Revealing Patterns. Developing Tools. Empowering Change.

Teens and young adults can often feel misunderstood by others, get off-track in their developmental path, feel alone and isolated or become overwhelmed by responsibilities in various areas of their life. I provide a safe environment for these patients to express their thoughts and feelings about whatever troubles them while educating them about life issues and how to more effectively manage stress. My ultimate goal is to teach each young person how to use their new “tools", not only in the present moment, but also as they mature and journey into their adult lives.
