Due to the special makeup of young adulthood it takes a unique therapeutic approach. I have worked with adolescents (and young adults) for over 14 years and have successfully engaged them in individual and family therapy. I specialize on working with gender expressive teens, teens who engage in substance misuse, and first generation American teens. My work with teens is focused on being approachable, empathic, and client centered. I aim to create a space for the young person to feel like they can talk without being judged and that is separate from their family. I can incorporate family therapy or provide separate parent support, if desired, and this can be done in various ways depending on the family’s needs.
If you or a young person you know is interested to talking with a therapist please contact me for a free 20 minute consultation.
