Pre-teen and Adolescent Therapy

Pre-teens and adolescents are faced with the unique challenges of both navigating childhood and entering adulthood.  Therefore, therapy for issues that arise in this population requires an equally unique treatment approach that balances these two worlds.


My office is designed with casual seating on one side for those children and young adults more comfortable with sitting and talking, and multiple media for self expression including games, activities, art materials, etc. on the other side for those who struggle to find the words to express their feelings.  It is common and developmentally appropriate for pre-teens and adolescents to have difficulty with verbal expression when confronted with frightening or overwhelming emotions. The nurturing, safe environment I provide is ripe with opportunities for both verbal and symbolic self-expression allowing the child or young adult to address his or her problems most comfortably and effectively.
