Colleagues joke about me being able to "speak teen". I have a ton of experience working with them, starting our work together by explaining the parameters of their right to privacy and proving to them that they can trust me with anything that crosses their minds. Adolescence is a complicated stage of life; teens begin to distinguish themselves and discover who they are and want to be.
Colleagues joke about me being able to "speak teen". We our work together discussing the parameters of their right to privacy and securing a trusting relationship. Adolescence is a complicated stage of life; teens begin to distinguish themselves and discover who they are and want to be. It's also a period of great uncertainty and turbulence, where teens are navigating increased responsibility & agency. I enjoy being here to support them through this challenging time.
Anxiety is a useful emotion that helps motivate us to take care of responsibilities, meet deadlines, prepare for future encounters or situations, and allows for us to be vigilant of circumstances that are uncomfortable or not good for us. Anxiety can also cross a threshold in which it becomes counterproductive. Sometimes this is in the form of panic attacks, feeling overwhelmed or drained, and so on. My goal is to help you learn to manage the circumstances that lead to you entering this arena.
As we go about our lives, we have thoughts and experiences that can shape how we view ourselves. Over time, if we find ourselves feeling devalued, invisible, or unworthy, our actions will follow as such. These actions can then either continue the lowering of our self-esteem or maintain it. My goal is to help you challenge automatic thoughts and the choices we make in a way that allows the healing process to begin. I want you to be able to find value and purpose within yourself.
