The help your child receives now influences their future. Their success as an adult and their ability to have healthy relationships is greatly determined by their childhood well-being.

 Adolescents who experience anxiety tend to do more poorly in school and have more absences than adolescents who don’t have anxiety. Therapy helps to identify the root cause of a child’s anxiety, which will not only help your child in the short term, but can help them succeed in the long run.

Being a teenager is difficult. When a teen experiences anxiety in addition to the competitive social climate, academic pressures, and physiological changes, it can be extremely overwhelming and debilitating.

I help teens overcome their anxiety by using mindfulness based modalities that help them connect with their body, their feelings, and their thoughts. Once they are more connected they are able to integrate emotional experiences instead of using harmful or unwanted behaviors such as substances and self-harm to tune out their experiences.
