Counseling: Children, Adolescents & Young Adults

Are you concerned your child may be having a hard time at school or with friends?
Do you have a teen you feel is slipping away as a result of bad choices or habits?

If so, you are not alone - there are solutions to these problems.

Counseling For Children, Adolescents & Young Adults:

When working as a child therapist I primarily use play therapy.  As children become teenagers (and then young adults) the counseling becomes more traditional talk therapy, often from a cognitive therapy (CBT) perspective.  Some of the mental health problems children, adolescents & young adults seek treatment for fall into the following categories:

  • Anxiety Disorders (including School Anxiety, Social Anxiety & Anxiety Attacks)
  • Bi Polar Disorder (Manic Depression)
  • Bullying information
  • Depression treatment (including Major Depression & Clinical Depression)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Divorce
  • Eating disorder treatment (including anorexia, bulimia & emotional eating)
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
  • Personality/temperament exploration
  • Relationship help
  • Self-harm/Self-injury
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault (including date rape)
  • Sexuality (including disorders & orientation)
  • Spirituality (including Christian counseling)
  • Stress management
  • Suicidal thoughts & behaviors *
  • Trauma therapy (including PTSD treatment)

If you would like to talk about the specific issue(s) you, or someone you care about, is struggling with please contact me.
Overall, I believe I have a compassionate, but firm approach to Mental Health Counseling and Life Coaching.
I have helped hundreds of clients reach their goals and go on to lead lives that are marked by happiness & personal contentment.
I do not believe in therapy that lasts indefinitely but will work with you to make a plan that will work for your specific situation.
