Therapeutic support for teens is designed with the goal of helping them to gain personal insight. Growing up is about figuring out who are, how you fit into this world, and what you want to create in your life. Through successful guidance, we uncover unrealized dreams and create solutions. Working with teens is a balancing act of helping them better understand and accept themselves, while also pushing them to grow towards a higher level of functionality and consciousness.
Working with family members as a system is the most significant catalyst for lasting emotional growth and change. I specialize in working with teens, and then include family members in order to target the maladaptive family patterns that keep people from thriving. This work is relationship focused, with attention on healing past emotional wounds, communication challenges, and any broken trust that hold loved ones at a distance from each other.
Group therapy is a powerful modality that can help build lasting emotional growth. In a group setting individuals can experience vulnerability in the presence of others, which culminates in deep personal acceptance. Careful attention to emotional safety and community building are always monitored. Positive peer influence has the potential to impact developmental growth exponentially!
