About Me

The teen years are hard for both teen and parents alike. I have 15 years experiencing working with teenagers and their parents. I have helped teens and parents learn to better understand and manage their symptoms, improve communicate skills, as well as supporting teens as they gain independence and make that scary transition to adulthood.

I have worked with many common adolescent mental health diagnoses including depression, anxiety, ADHD, Autism Spectrum, bi-polar disorder, and DMDD. I have also enjoyed working with siblings of clients with persistent mental illness. This can be challenging for the non-identified child and having their own counselor can be beneficial.

I am licensed in New York State as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have worked with teenagers in numerous non-traditional living arrangements such as foster care, adoptive homes, and living with relatives. Today's teens are facing more stress then ever, a trend that the pandemic has only made worse. I am able to address not only persistent mental illness but also more normative teen angst. I am able to work with teens to normalize their experiences and reduce concern about stigmas and labels.

I believe in a client-centered approach and am comfortable working with teens and their parents to allow for healthy communication for all family members. I look forward to getting to know your teen better and hopefully help them find some relief from their stress and symptoms to life happy and fufilled lives.

The support I've received in the small time that I have worked with Rebecca is truly appreciated. She's been patient and understanding that therapy was not an easy step for me and helped me feel welcome when I was ready.
