As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, and Life Coach, my background is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with an emphasis on mindfulness, and emotional regulation. I have experience working with adolescents from ages 12 to 19, on family relationships, legal and substance use issues. My practice is built on positive psychology, attachment theory, and emotional intelligence. It is my pleasure to join with my clients for however brief or long our time together is. In therapy we work on identifying dysfunctional areas, often time rooted in personal perspectives, in life and relationships. Together we identify areas that need improvement, goals, and strategies for change. We work at the client's pace within our allowed time together. My aim is for teens and parents to feel safe to discuss personal challenges, with support in the problem solving process while preserving hope for positive change. Adolescents can be a challenging time for child and parent. Finding ways to share common ground, communicate effectively, and set positive boundaries will support increased harmony.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Heather Pantalone. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
shes so nice and helped me sm
Heather has been nothing but helpful to me. She listens and understands situations very well and provides a sense of safety and comfort. Would recommend highly.
Heather is extremely personable and easy to talk to. She really takes time to actively listen and understand my issues. She is also super responsive, even when I send messages between our sessions. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Heather is very kind and wonderful at holding space for me. I asked her in the beginning if she can act as a witness to my inner process and she has been doing just that! I really enjoy our sessions and I feel very safe and always leave with new self-insight.
