Adolescent mental health is an issue on the rise. Adolescence can be a time of excitement, exhilaration, and new adventures. It can also be a time where one can feel a overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. I work with teens and their parents to not only understand the nature of their concerns, but also develop personalized strategies or tools to help adolescents navigate through this difficult time. A combination of cognitive behavioral, solution focused, client-centered and mindful strategies are used to help develop a better understanding of what is happening. I focus on helping teens and their parents feel understood and safe as they explore this challenging time.
