Therapy for Youth

Support for teens and young adults ages 12-25

Being a youth, teenager, or young adult is hard. School can be stressful and overwhelming. Friendships can get complicated and relationships can be confusing. Home life can sometimes feel uncomfortable, unsafe, and/or an unhappy place to be. Adjusting to life's changes can be a big struggle and the uncertainty of it all can feel scary and overwhelming. I get it, and I'd be happy to listen and support you through it. 


I have a wide range of experiences working with young and young adults (ages 12-25) in a variety of work environments since 2007. I've fulfilled many roles, including being a high school teacher for 5 years, youth group facilitator for 4 years, assistant house parent (at a private school) for 3 years, as well as being an instructor, tutor, and coach.


Based on the many experiences I've had in the public and private school system, I have gained a thorough understanding of the many challenges that youth and young adults face on a daily basis. These challenges include (but are not limited to) stress, general anxiety, performance anxiety, social anxiety, depression, low mood, low self-esteem and confidence, body image issues, bullying and harassment, interpersonal relationship issues, family dynamic issues, time management and motivation issues, as well as feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, and suicidal ideation.


I also have experience working with a unique and important population of youth; siblings of children/adults with special needs. Do/did you grow up with a sibling who has special needs? Do your friends and family members understand the unique experiences, challenges, successes, and highlights of growing up with a sibling who has special needs? Do you struggle with feeling like others "get it"? I have 4 years of experience as a SibShops group facilitator -- a group for youth and young adults who happen to be siblings of children with special needs. These groups would allow for youth and young adults to meet, share stories, discuss successes and struggles, as well as offer supportive coping skills to manage the unique challenges that come with having a sibling(s) with a special need(s).


If you are a youth or young adult and you are experiencing any of the above mentioned challenges, I would be so happy to work with you!
