Many adolescents are in therapy today. Mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in U.S. school-aged children are common. In fact, according to a recent study, 1 in 6 children are affected by a mental health issue


Therapy helps adolescents cope and learn new skills to address painful feelings like sadness, anger, stress, worry and low self-esteem.  These can be caused by issues such as family trouble, school problems and bullying. They can also be caused by conditions such as ADHD, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Adolescents should be taught that going to therapy is not a sign of weakness and it does not mean that they’re crazy. 


I treat many adolescents and work with emotional and behavioral issues that include:

  • Low self-esteem

  • Depression

  • Bullying

  • Stress & anxiety

  • Conflict resolution 

  • Parenting support
