Are you worried about your teenager's sudden change in behavior or mood?

Is your tween’s shyness or lack of friends causing him/her distress?

Are you frustrated with your teenager’s moods and isolation?

Has the school contacted you out of concern?

Is your family going through stress, such as a divorce or older sibling leaving for college?

Does your tween seem anxious much of the time?

You’re not alone.  I’m here to help.  Therapy can give your tween or teenager the tools and skills to become happier and more secure and confident.  In a non-judgmental, encouraging environment, your child can learn new ways to understand him/herself and create healthy ways to feel better when social situations or their own emotions feel overwhelming.  Then he/she can begin to build healthier friendships, improve academic performance or experience more confidence and joy.  If your son or daughter needs a caring professional to provide ways to heal the hurt, find new solutions for daily stresses, or to learn better ways to cope and communicate better with others, I'm glad you have found my site.

A vital part of my practice in working with children under 13 years of age is working with parents.  Whether you are concerned about emotional, social, or behavioral issues, I can provide you with support and information to help your child at home or in school.  My therapy is designed to teach you and your child to create new strategies and skills for problem solving.
