Adolescents and Emerging Adults 

How can I tell if my child needs help?

Is your child struggling or striving? Is your child able to maintain grades? Do they have friends and get along with peers? Are you able to talk to your teen on a regular basis? If 'no' is the answer to any of these, your child may need help. 

 

Young people are sometimes very resistant to therapy; it is a uniquely complicated time of growth for teens and their families.  Social, academic and family stressors are frequently overwhelming. The result can bring tremendous pain and confusion to an entire family. I am skilled at clarifying the source of a problem and providing appropriate support. Individual talking therapy, family and/or group therapy are all possible tools in the healing process.

 

Past work and training has equipped me with strong knowledge in each of these modalities. My goal is to provide the best treatment solution and to help ease the tensions for all members of the family.

 

What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
