TEENAGERS & THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE THEM
When I started out in this field, the majority of my clients were children ages 3-12. I used to feel a little scared of the teenagers! As my oldest daughter grew, and I got closer to having one of my own, I realized how great they really are.
INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING & FAMILY THERAPY
The first step is to set up a parent consultation. We will address your concerns and any questions you may have. This is an opportunity for you to decide if I am the best fit for your teen and your family. If so, then we will customize a plan that works with your schedules. Communication is key. Even if your teen is participating in individual counseling, we will meet for a family session or a follow-up parent consultation at least once a month.
BECAUSE WE ALL NEED HELP SOMETIMES
Although my unique specialization is with younger children and Play Therapy, I have found that incorporating and modifying interactive things like art, mindfulness exercises and animal assisted therapy into my sessions with tweens and teens has been good for them and for me. Having something to do while we visit helps break the ice and create a more comfortable setting.
