Adolescents today lead complicated lives. Times and technology has changed significantly in the past 10 years. Adding layers to our social society, complicating the lives of adolescents.
Therapy is a great place for adolescents to have a safe environment to express their thoughts and feelings about everyday lives, experiences with bullying, low self-esteem, academic pressures, family life issues, sexual orientation, gender norms and many more topics.
If you are an adolescent struggling in school, feeling social or academic pressures, feeling overwhelmed by the world around you, confused about who you are, or unsure of how to move forward and feel stuck. Therapy may be a place for you and your therapist to collaboratively work together on any issue.
Society places a strong stigma on receiving help for mental health issues or emotional distress. In fact, the human desire to find connection with another trusted human being, to share a space in confidence and trust is a normal human need. Adolescents today need extra support and guidance through the complicated layers of society.

Providing teens with a non-judgmental safe environment to express their innermost thoughts and feelings is what I strive to do. Helping teens to find ways to express and communicate their needs to others in a way that reducing the arguing, feelings of sadness, and more.
Psychotherapy can help adolescents learn how to be less stressed, increase their self-confidence, self-care, increase communication skills, and find appropriate ways to express their feelings.
