Therapy for Tweens & Teens
Does your child suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stressed, or tearful? Have you noticed a change in your child’s behavior, grades, or academic performance? Has your child recently gone through a major life transition, such as a death in the family, divorce of parents, or change of schools/graduation?
Sometimes tweens and teens can’t or won’t verbalize the difficulties they face and what they feel. Getting to the root of their problems and finding lasting, helpful solutions requires experience and innovative strategies. I combine talk therapy with expressive techniques such as art, writing, and play to help your child find his or her voice. Through expressive therapies, people learn how the world works, how to interact with others, how to problem solve, and who they are as individuals.
I work alongside young people and their families, assisting with:
- Self injury/self harm
- Eating disorders
- Conceptualization of self/self esteem
- Stress management
- Peer/school difficulties
- Life transitions
- Separation/divorce/other family changes
Allow me to help your tween or teen navigate their challenges.
