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-expansive teens, teens who engage in risk taking behaviors such as substance misuse or self-harm, 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.
