Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in working with adolescents and their families. Your life as a teenager is complex and filled with daily challenges. You struggle with overwhelming feelings, harsh social environments, and daily attacks to your self-esteem, all while balancing new levels of responsibility and independent coping. Therapy for adolescents provides safety for teenagers who want to develop trust, coping skills, and personal expression. I trust you to share with me your experiences as a teenager, so that I can fully support you in growth toward adulthood. I bring my Person Centered approach to working with adolescents in two ways. First, I make sure you feel that my office is a place where I accept you for exactly who you are. Second, I brainstorm with you on areas in your life you want to excel, and practice new skills with you that will help you succeed in those goals. My career began at Casa Youth Shelter, a crisis shelter for teens. I provided individual sessions for adolescents, as well as family sessions with the teens' families, helping residents cope with family conflict, depression, trauma, and substance abuse. Nowadays, I stay involved with Casa as a weekly Recreation Volunteer.
