Teen Therapy

Now, more than ever, teenagers are struggling. While every generation of teens has been challenged with issues of identity, sexuality, peer relationships, and school, these challenges have been compounded for teens of today.

 

Growing up with the social and health implications of COVID, the omnipresence of technology and social media, high pressure from school and sports, and increased questions about gender identity and sexual orientation, teens of today are facing increasing rates of depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation*.

 

I am honored to support teens during this precious and vulnerable stage of life as they transition from childhood to adulthood, and work collaboratively with caregivers and family systems to ensure that both the teens and the family unit have their needs met. I connect with teenagers though talk therapy, games, art, and music, and offer a flexible, non-judgmental and inviting approach to make teenagers feel comfortable and welcome in therapy.

 

I offer support for:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Social and relationship challenges

  • Increasing self-esteem

  • Navigating social media's impact on life and relationships

  • Balancing school, extracurricular activities, friendships, and home life

  • Questions of identity, including sexuality and gender identity

  • Family dynamics

  • Managing stress
