Teens in Crisis
Adolescence is a time when teens begin to face adult issues in life and stop talking to their parents. Teenagers are on an emotional roller coaster as they develop their first intimate relationships, establish their identities, and cope with peer and family pressures. When grave illness, divorce, death of a loved one, or other trauma enters the mix, the result can be emotionally overwhelming. Creative interventions and an environment that is both nurturing and challenging help teens discover their true selves.
Has the unthinkable just happened? Have you recently experienced a traumatic event or serious loss? I provide immediate as well as long-term strategies to lessen the negative psychological impact of the traumatic incident. I offer counseling to reduce the risk of lingering problems such as depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder.
Grief and Loss
There is no time limit on grief. We must allow ourselves to take the time we need and allow grief to run its natural course. Whether your relationship or marriage has ended or a loved one has died, it is helpful to share your grief, understand the stages, and learn healthful ways to cope.
