Teens & Young Adults

"Shame dies when stories are told in safe places." - Ann Voskamp


Therapy for Teens and Young Adults

Therapy for teens and young adults in my office setting is based on Carl Rogers Person-Centered Therapy (Rogerian Therapy.) The person-centered therapist learns to recognize and trust human potential, providing clients with empathy and unconditional positive regard to help facilitate change. I offer support, guidance, and structure so that the client can discover personal solutions and facilitate change within themselves.

I believe in getting creative during therapy by tapping into different mediums to help facilitate the therapeutic process. I use a lot of expressive arts to help my clients identify and work through their feelings. Using art in therapy is a wonderful use of expression, relaxation, and trust-building between the client and myself.

I also use Sand Tray therapy. Sand Tray therapy is a unique and creative way for children, teens, and adults to process their emotions. You can read more about Sand Tray therapy here.
