Teens

As a licensed therapist for the past 14 years, I have counseled youth ages of 9-19 and their families in schools, community mental health, and now in private practice specializing in working with adolescent males--helping to resolve family conflict, adjust to changes and relationships, understand developmental stages, and discover the happiness in life.

In our fast-paced media-driven culture, self-conscious teens are faced with the daunting task of sorting through and balancing family, school, and social concerns, all without the benefit of the experience and judgment that adults have. 

Working with a trained psychotherapist to help negotiate the often precarious developmental path towards adulthood can add grace and ease to the process. 

I thrive on connecting and building trust with tweens and teens to truly understand and help them grow in their relationships with friends and family. Developing a healthy identity and coping skills while building self-knowledge, productive motivations, and a positive self-esteem is unique to each individual and an art that requires heart-centered listening, positive regard, expertise, and empowering coaching skills. 

Helping parents to manage, rebuild, and maintain strong relationships with their rapidly changing and developing teenagers requires similar empathy, as well as a depth of clinical and practical experience. And, sometimes parents just need an outlet to vent, reflect and gain perspective on their roles, tough decisions, and/or the challenges at hand.


Through it all, I have the privilege of getting to know many wonderful boys, girls, parents, and families while helping manage through tough times, heal relationships, and find renewed success. I look forward to working with you and your family!
