Therapy for Teens

(and for teens who hate therapy but need someone to talk to…)

Your teenager is a really great kid.

Hardworking – kind – thoughtful. Everything you could ask for and more.

But something’s off.

They come to you feeling all the feels – loads of anxiety and panic attacks.

And they’re struggling to keep up with the demands of life.

It’s been hard and weird.

Life has changed so dramatically in the last year – and it hasn’t. Academic stress, problems with friends, figuring out college, what the future looks like, and social media pressures haven’t gone away.

They just look different – and the way forward has felt more uncertain than ever.

You’re not sure how to help them deal with everything – you don’t even know all the social media platforms!

They’ve shut you out.

As a parent, it’s heartbreaking and frustrating to sense your teen is struggling – and you can’t seem to figure out how to reach them anymore.

They lock themselves in their room and say everything is “fine,” but you know it’s not.

You want nothing more than to see them be happy – to watch them develop into a self-confident young person who recognizes their unique special talents and gifts.

But you don’t know what to do anymore.

Even if you’ve provided your teen with the most nurturing and supportive home and school environments, some kids are naturally more sensitive to the social messaging that tells them they have to be perfect, cool, and have everything “figured out.”

The pressure can be overwhelming.

It can lead to self-doubt, loss of motivation, frustration, stress, and anxiety.

I can help.

Working with me, teens develop the tools to experience high school and college life with clarity, confidence, and the knowledge that they have the skills they need to deal with life’s challenges.

Through therapy, teens learn how to embrace their own uniqueness, discover what matters to them, and live with a sense of purpose and direction that comes from within – not from what everyone else on social media thinks about them.

I’ve worked with this age group extensively over the years as a wellness professional. I have a keen understanding of what teens are feeling and how to connect with them in a way that makes them feel heard, supported, and understood. These qualities are fundamental to the therapeutic process.

Connecting with me is easy.

I offer a free 15-minute consultation. If you decide I’m a good fit to help your teen navigate their challenges, we’ll schedule an initial therapy session.

The first therapy session runs from 50 to 70 minutes. During that time, I’ll get to know your teen and explain more about how therapy works. Thereafter, I recommend three more individual sessions to get to know them better and develop my treatment recommendations.

Although the length of treatment varies per individual, I recommend at least 12 sessions. Consistency is key. Depending on needs and availability, we should have one to two sessions per week.

I offer midday, late afternoon, and early evening appointment times to accommodate school, work, and extracurricular activities. For added convenience, I offer online sessions.
