Youth

I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults who are struggling with issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse, and life transitions.

Finding someone to trust to share these concerns with can be tough. My focus on establishing a trusting relationship has gone far in supporting youth through these life challenges. I have seen significant changes in those that I have been privileged to work with. Using expressive arts, mindfulness based approaches and cognitive behavioral therapy, my work with youth supports healing, discovery and growth from struggles with:

  • Emotional regulation

  • Low self esteem

  • Self-injury and suicidal thoughts

  • Anxiety

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and "Sticky thoughts"

  • Depression

  • Trauma (PTSD)

  • Peer and social difficulties

  • Family disruption and divorce

  • Parent-teen conflict

  • Sexual orientation / gender identity
