The journey from adolescence to adulthood can be wrought with moments of extreme happiness/laughter/success, in combination with moments of extreme difficulty/anger/sadness. Often a full range of these intense emotions seem to take place every 24 hours! Other times this period in our lives can be dominated by singular feelings of depression, anxiety, or despair.
As parents many of us have been there and promised to guide our children through this tumultuous time with an ease our parents could only dream of. In reality, no matter how hard we try, this time is often difficult for everyone involved.
I specialize in offering adolescents and young adults a safe place to process their feelings, gain an understanding of their ever changing selves, and develop the decision making skills necessary to navigate this time safely.
Parents are always involved in this process to varying degrees, which will be determined and agreed upon at the start of treatment.
