Before learning the more complex skills of goal-setting, time management and social skills, teens need to develop the coping skills necessary to respond to criticism, disappointment, and change.
As an experienced teen therapist, I can help assess any challenge your teen may be experiencing and offer you effective recommendations for solving the problem.
The best time to consult with me is when you have noticed changes in your teen’s behavior — impacting their ability to connect with others and cope with their challenges.
I specialize in working with teens & young adults—from all cultural backgrounds—whose path of development is a little more complex than others
