A note to teens: Perhaps you are interested in seeking therapy because you are struggling with feelings or behaviors that are causing problems for you. Maybe you are feeling pressured by your parent(s) to see a therapist. Either way, my hope is that we can work together to create an experience that is meaningful to you. Many of my teenaged clients have been surprised by how much they enjoyed therapy and have found it comforting to have a place where they can be heard and understood. If you are struggling with any of the above problems, chances are that your life has become more difficult and painful. I want to encourage you that there is an alternative to dealing with things alone and tolerating the pain. Often within a short period of time, therapeutic intervention can lead to signficant improvements in mood and quality of life.
