Counseling for Youth and Adolescents
I support youth and adolescents in learning emotional coping and effective communication skills and to become more developmentally mature and self-reliant.
I have several years of experience
counseling young people who are encountering depression and/or anxiety, acting out, or internalizing due to family transitions, trauma, or other chronic
or situational stressers.
I use a combination of play, sandtray, and structured activities for youth aged 7-11.
Sessions with adolescents and youth aged 12 and up are guided by co-created goals and individual needs and always an added sense of humor.
I am always open to parent involvement and input in support of their child's treatment. I also work with parents in separate or family sessions toward developing effective strategies to communicate with their children and cope with chronic and situational stressers faced by the family.
