Is your teen experiencing increased stress, anxiety or depression during these challenging times? Or have they been struggling for a while? Youth often lack the skills, not the will, to meet the demands of daily life. Together we will identify underlying causes and strategies to support your teen and family. We will build on what you're already doing well. Imagine your teen feeling better and gaining confidence and independence. All changes start with a vision and the time is now!
The Collaborative Problem Solving approach, that I use when working with families, is an evidence-based method for decreasing stressful family interactions by teaching youth the skills needed to meet expectations. Engaging your teen in Collaborative Problem Solving discussions will help them open up, consider the perspective of others, and increase their problem solving and thinking skills.
Making art reduces stress and helps many teens engage more in therapy. Art therapy helps youth process difficult experiences and communicate feelings, thoughts and memories that are hard to express in words. Art therapy is also used during family therapy to support positive interactions and the sharing and revising of family stories. Artistic talent is not necessary and stick figures are welcome!
Is your teen experiencing anxiety due to increased stress, isolation, unknowns and changes? Therapy helps youth express and externalize their fears and worries and learn calming skills. Learning how to lower stress and manage anxiety leads to increased confidence and connection with others.
Many teens and young adults are feeling more depressed during these challenging times. They are facing a future of unknowns and spending more time on screens than ever. Therapy helps youth maintain healthy, productive and safe behaviors. I have found that both talk therapy and Art Therapy help youth express and externalize difficult feelings and thoughts that are contributing to depression.
I have more than 20 years experience providing treatment services to youth diagnosed with ADHD. I also taught art to students with ADHD and learning differences at a small private middle school for 5 years. It's common for youth with ADHD to struggle with managing school, emotional regulation, anxiety, depression and underlying feelings of shame. Therapy helps youth strengthen lagging skills and increase self-compassion and confidence.
I have a passion for helping adopted and foster youth with healing, setting healthy boundaries, developing healthy coping skills and accessing self-compassion. For many years, I have supported families through crises and with understanding and addressing the effects of developmental trauma.
