Is your teen under a lot of stress? Do they seem less happy than they once were?
The teenage years are an exceptionally difficult time. Hormone levels are skyrocketing and the pressure to succeed academically and to fit in socially is enormous. While it's normal for teens to struggle, it's important they receive extra support if they're becoming increasingly anxious, insecure, depressed, isolated, or burnt out.
If you're noticing these signs, you’re probably worried your teen won't be able to achieve their goals or live the happy and healthy life they deserve. You might even be blaming yourself, questioning if you can or should be doing more. As a parent, it is SO difficult to watch your son or daughter struggling. However, you don’t have to go through this alone. I’m here to support you both.
After committing to therapy, I've seen teens of all ages open up to support, build motivation and confidence, and get back on track.
My recent background as a high school social worker provides me with an in-depth understanding of what teenagers in high school and college are experiencing. I know the ins and outs of the school systems. Additionally, I have experience implementing IEP and 504 plans and can provide helpful consultation and teamwork with pertinent school personnel, if and when needed.
