Specializing in Teenage Girls
and their Families
Helping adolescents cope with the struggles of
being a teen.
Teens today often tell me they wish they could just be on their own, making their
own choices and being respected, yet they feel like they have not had time to
be a kid. The struggle and pain of identity issues, low self-esteem and poor family
connection can lead to intense anger, poor body image, drug and alcohol misuse,
increased family problems, irritability, depression, and even suicidal ideation or
self-harming thoughts. These thoughts and feelings can be intense, scary and
lonely. In individual therapy, I will work with you to feel better about youself
and your family, identify key issues of concern and to develop healthier coping
and decision making skills.
