Therapy for Adolescents

*Telehealth Appointments Now Available*

A lot of growing and changing happens during adolescence. For some kids it is smooth and for others it’s quite painful. Adolescents begin to pull away from their families in order to clarify their own identity and they turn mostly to their peers for input and support. Adolescents tell you less than when they were children and yet they need you more than ever. I work with parents to help them maintain strong connections with their teens while also supporting their increasing independence.

Here are some of the issues I commonly treat in adolescents:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Family Problems
  • Body Image Issues
  • Poor Self Esteem
  • Eating Disorders
  • Self Harming Behaviors
  • Issues Related to Identity and Sexuality

I use a variety of different approaches in my work with children and teenagers including the following:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Family Systems Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Attachment Based Therapy
