Is it getting harder to tell what is typical adolescent behavior and what behaviors you need to be worried about? Working with teens who have experienced anxiety, depression, drug use, difficulty making or keeping friends, risk-taking behaviors (e.g., sexual promiscuity or physical danger), and many other difficulties, I have gained significant experience and training to help you navigate what will be most effective to communicate effectively, set limits, and improve overall well-being.
Are your child's behaviors of concern to you or maybe teachers? If you are noticing that your child is struggling to tolerate transitions, seems nervous, easily cries, has difficulty separating from caretakers, has a hard time following directions, or acts out, you have come to the right place. As a Child and Adolescent Psychologist, I have significant training and experience working with children who present with complex issues or may just need a place to express themselves and learn skills.
Emotional sensitivity can seem like a curse to those of us who feel deeply. It often leads to experiencing intense emotions and difficulty coming back to neutral. Through my training and experiences, I have learned that emotional sensitivity is a strength. Highly sensitive people feel intensely; therefore, they are passionate about what is meaningful to them and inspire others to care deeply too. Acceptance of feelings as valid and learning to respond differently is the goal.
I am foundationally trained in DBT through Behavioral Tech, completed a two-year psychology fellowship specializing in DBT, was part of a comprehensive DBT program for adolescents and young adults through Jackson Health System for 5 years, and helped to train psychology and psychiatry trainees in DBT. Currently, I am only practicing DBT-informed therapy, which focuses on learning DBT skills in individual therapy for people who could benefit from learning about acceptance and change.
I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults since grad school implementing CBT in a variety of settings, including a hospital, school, and private practice. I have implemented CBT when treating anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, interpersonal and eating difficulties, and several other issues. I find that when we target unhelpful thought distortions and behaviors, this improves our ability to check the facts, increase emotion regulation, and solve problems more effectively.
