A large majority of us could probably look back on our teenage years and remember how difficult and uncomfortable those years were. When it comes to our teens, though, we often forget how tumultuous these years are. I see my teenage clients in a light that is specific to the reality they are experiencing. Craving independence, it can often be hard for teenagers to connect with others. I work to cultivate a space of genuine understanding that allows teenagers to feel safe to express themselves and overcome the many obstacles that face them.
Therapists who understand the world of today’s teens can be an invaluable tool in ensuring a clear and healthy mind to make the transition into adulthood. I understand how large and monumental the experiences of a teenager loom. I see the vulnerability and sensitivity while offering opportunities for building the skills needed to overcome the emotional struggles that teens face daily.
