“I have a great appreciation for the adolescent mind. Developmentally, adolescence is an important time of discovery in an individuals life that comes with many emotional junctures, milestone celebrations, and stages of growth. I believe that by creating a safe and non-judgmental environment, clients will feel supported during these times and increase personal confidence allowing them to make positive decisions, meet their goals and set the foundation for future success.
I believe that bringing creative therapeutic techniques into sessions is very helpful especially when adolescents are having trouble verbalizing what they are feeling or experiencing. Bringing things like journaling, grounding, music and art into sessions increases clients sense of safety and encourages them to be able to bring any topics into the counseling session. Together, the client and I will work through symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, self-injurious behaviors, school related issues, and other stressors.”
