I really enjoy working with teenagers! I have served students aged 12-20 in an educational setting for eight years. Adolescence is a wonderful and sometimes challenging phase of life...for the teen and those around them. Changes occur constantly during these years and can lead to trouble in many areas. I can help teens and families dealing with problems or stress in the areas of academic, social, personal, and college/career development.
