Whether your teenager is having challenges communicating or having difficulties coping with emotions or life events, speaking with a professional therapist can be helpful to sort things out. These years involve so many challenges which can be exciting, but it's also a time that can be filled with overwhelming emotions and stresses of family, school and peers. I've worked with adolescents in clinical settings and in residential treatment centers.
I'm a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW/LMSW) with 20 years of experience in the mental health field in the states of Florida and Michigan. I graduated from University of Michigan-Ann Arbor with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a Master's in social work. I work with adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns, including mood disorders, family and relationship conflict, life transitions, loss and grief, adjustment issues, and coping with medical illness.
Each person is unique, so I believe in practicing an integrative approach to treatment utilizing approaches such as cognitive behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, solution focused, person-centered, motivational interviewing and psychodynamic therapies. I will work to find the best approach(es) to suit your needs.
My role is to help you - within the safety of a positive therapeutic environment - gain a deeper understanding, develop a new perspective and learn new skills without being judged. I welcome the opportunity to work with you!
