I enjoy working with teens, and received advanced training at youth & family agencies and university counseling centers. I also have a background in K-12 education. Examples of issues I work on with adolescents include:
Grief and Loss
Sexual Identity Issues
Peer Relationship Problems
Many young people benefit from having a supportive adult in their life with whom they can express feelings, without fear of judgment. When working with adolescents, I help them become more aware of how they are feeling and what is causing distress in their lives. I then encourage more open communication with family and other important people in their lives.
