Psychotherapy for Adolescents
Working with adolescents is a special world all its own. These amazing individuals are not children, nor are they adults; they’re in a transforming growth period where they’re leaving the dependency of childhood behind and embracing self-reliance. It can be a painful time of life, but it doesn’t have to be.
During these years, adolescents are learning to make decisions and to decide which values they will embrace. It’s a fluid time when values fluctuate from week to week, but it’s a very real process and needs to be appreciated.
In my practice, I work with adolescents who have:
- low self esteem
- anger and defiant disorders
- developmental delays
- grief and traumatic experiences
- relationship issues with peers and family members
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- victims of bullying
- eating disorders
