Adolescence is often a time of great change. Adolescents are in the process of figuring out who they are, forming their own identity separate from their parents and families of origin, and are shifting from childhood to young adulthood.
In the process, their bodies and brains are continuing to change and develop while juggling school and the social pressures that face teens today. I specialize in providing counseling to adolescents during these difficult times of transition. If your teen is having difficulty adjusting to middle school, high school, college, or relationships, and possibly exhibiting symptoms of anxiety, depression, moodiness, isolation, and/or changes in sleeping and eating habits, my practice can be helpful in creating a safe space that allows for exploration and growth at his/her own pace.
