Therapy for Teens, Young Adults and Families
Treatment for Adolescents and Families:
The teenage years can be some of the most challenging – for both kids and parents. By the time families seek therapy for their teen’s problems, they have tried a variety of strategies. It takes courage for families to look at themselves honestly and address what is no longer working in the system. It is essential that all family members feel welcomed, safe, heard, and understood, never judged or blamed. At times, our work may be challenging. My goal is to help families get to a place where they no longer need a mediator to communicate with each other — so they can problem-solve, negotiate and express their needs directly to one another.
Treatment for Individuals:
I also treat individuals who are struggling with mood conditions of all kinds, such as depression, anxiety, reactions from past trauma, intimacy & relationship problems. Again, it takes courage to look honestly at ourselves, but I believe that if we don’t ask the questions about how our history shaped us, the dynamics repeat themselves. My approach is geared towards helping clients, in a sensitive and empowering manner, to quickly identify the different coping mechanisms they have destructively used to avoid being in touch with their feelings and themselves.
