Therapy for Adults
The evidenced based therapies I use are Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral and EMDR therapy. As I guide you through the therapeutic healing process, my aim is for you to discover ways to feel at ease and enjoy life.
Some of my clients have experienced unfortunate life experiences or traumas. These experiences can range from a car accident to past physical, sexual or other abuse. EMDR therapy may be recommended as a proven method to address these concerns. Please read my EMDR blog to find out more about this type of therapy.
Therapy for Teens
I meet with both the teenager and parent(s) the first session to understand what the needs and goals are. In subsequent sessions, I spend the majority of the time with the teen doing individual therapy. Confidentiality is crucial in therapy, especially with teenagers. Most teens won't share as much if they think their therapist is going to "rat them out." I reassure parents that if your teen is being harmed or in danger to themselves or another, I will inform them. Collectively we review growth and continued concerns. This enables healthier communication and solidifies gains made in session.
Using the evidenced based therapies of Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution-Focused, teens learn how to build confidence in themselves as they grow up. They discover how to have better relationships and feel more relaxed. EMDR therapy may be recommended with teens who have experienced an aversive life event or traumatic incident.
