Being a teenager has never been as difficult as it is today. With the explosion of technology, marketing, sexualization, pop-culture and confusing expectations, it is no wonder that many teens find themselves overwhelmed, anxious, confused and sad. Many teens experience stress and self-doubt in the face of so many social, familial and cultural pressures. In addition, it is often in adolescence that kids start naturally pulling away from their families to discover their own identity amidst peer pressure, media messages, and cultural influences. Psychotherapy can help teens and their parents navigate this difficult time. I also help teens who have, or are, experiencing: parental divorce/separation, the loss of a loved one, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, car accidents, multiple transitions, bullying, and more. I offer a safe place for teens to talk about their feelings, social/familial pressures, and to problem solve the many difficult scenarios they face. I also help them develop coping skills to manage depression, anxiety, and anger.
