Reduce stress, improve happiness and positive mood
Given all the social and academic pressures, it can be incredibly hard for teens to do everything well in a timely manner, avoid peer comparisons, and still feel good about themselves. My goal as a therapist is to help teens develop effective ways to respond to life’s challenges, achieve their aspirations, and become their best selves. I believe that strength, healing, and transformation begins through authentic connection, which starts with you taking the first step to connect with me. Now as a parent with a teen, you might feel uncertain about contacting me. I want you to know that this is a normal experience. It’s often difficult for most parents to acknowledge that they need help with their teens; and it can be incredibly anxiety evoking to allow a stranger to work closely with their teen in confidence. Yet in my experience, parents who are willing to take a risk and seek counseling for their teens often feel more relaxed and at ease knowing that their teens are being emotionally supported and cared for by a caring professional. Although investing in counseling may feel costly, the benefits are often lifelong. Therapy is by nature supportive, educational, and empowering, which when experienced can significantly help nurture and develop a heathy sense of self to effectively navigate life’s challenges. Should you allow your teen to go on this journey with me, I will do my very best to provide them with the best support and care. I will be with your teen, guiding them through the process of change, and encouraging them along the way. While every teen deserves to be listened to, heard, and understood by a caring professional who is committed to helping them flourish, not every teen is afforded this opportunity. So if you have the privilege of giving your teen this wonderful opportunity, why wait? Why not give your teen this gift right now by reaching out to me so that together we can determine how I might be of service to you and your teen?
