“And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through...” 

Being a teenager is an impossible task. You strive to be independent but still depend on others to get by, not to mention social and cultural pressures telling you to be more of this and less of that.  This can make it hard to know who you are, and who you want to be.

Finding a trusting adult who isn’t a parent, teacher, or authority figure is hard to come by for the average teen. That’s why I offer a compassionate, non-judgmental ear as I work to understand what it’s like being in your shoes. My goal is to support you through challenges with relationships, family, school issues, feelings of hopelessness or isolation, future goals, and any obstacles keeping you from your full potential.

Occasionally it may be appropriate to involve parents in the therapy process so that we can all be on the same page. Everything we discuss is confidential and will not be shared with parents or other adults, except for certain circumstances which we will discuss at the beginning of therapy.
