Creative Arts Therapist
I understand the developmental complexities and nuances of this age group. I provide teenagers with a nonjudgmental and safe space to explore identity issues and deal with personal and social conflicts. I help them express their feelings, ambivalence and confusion regarding their future and encourage them to try on various roles until they find the ones that fit best.
The teen years can be a tumultuous time, filled with numerous emotions and behaviors that adults struggle to understand and connect with. Teenagers want to meet with someone who is interacts with them like a real person, someone they can be comfortable with. By allowing a teenager a separate, confidential space to work through their feelings, decision making, and relationships with parents, peers and their future, the trajectory of their lives and self-image can be significantly improved.
