Getting through high school, dealing with family and friends and frenemies, can make you feel stuck and sometimes hopeless. Lots of teens do not know what to do when their mental health isn’t great or how to handle life and emotions day-to-day. AND adolescence is a time when life gets harder, you are expected to “grow up”, and when mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder can show up in a big way.
I am a social worker with over fourteen years of experience helping teens and families. I am skilled in working with clients one-on-one with mental health issues (anxiety, depression, self-esteem, mood disorders) common in adolescence, with a specialty in trauma and relationships. Most of the time my work with teens involves talking, trying out new skills to see what feels right, and taking a new look at someone’s sense of self now that they are growing up. I provide individual counseling, family sessions if useful, and DBT groups. I am also the creator and host of “Not Now, Maybe Later”, a teen mental health podcast (check it out on Spotify, YouTube, or SoundCloud). Whether you’ve tried therapy before, have been thinking about trying therapy for the first time, or someone else thinks therapy could help, you can contact me here to find out more.
