I love working with teens! They are the most vibrant and challenging, yet enjoyable part of my practice.
I worked for 10 years at Child Protective Services which exposed me to the difficulties of teen behaviors, foster care, and adoption. I have written adoption home studies and assisted in international adoptions for 10 years.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and some behavior managment techniques plus a great deal of parent eduation and counseling. Having had a "wild child" daughter myself, I have great empathy for those who are stuggling to get along and make progress in their life goals. I work with teens who do not like how they look and have low self esteem. I work with teens and families where gender identity is an issue. I work with teens who are exploring their sexual identities.
I also do Christian counseling based on my Stephen Ministry training.
As a Texas LCSW I have had almost 50 years of counseling experience.
It would be an honor to work with you and your teen.

Dr. Finch is warm and understanding. She has loved me to express thoughts and emotions without any judgment. Her expertise through my separation and potential divorce and how to guide my children through this huge life change has been in such a huge help and answered prayer.
