Life Can Be Extremely Stressful, Especially for Teens. Does Your Child Have the Tools to Cope?
Holistic Psychotherapy for Adolescents and Children
As a Holistic Psychotherapist, I firmly believe that an integrated approach to therapy produces better results than using one method alone.
I have been working as a psychotherapist since earning my masters degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002. In that time, my practice has evolved to focus on helping adolescents and children with issues of anxiety, depression, ADHD, and stress. I also work with college and high school students on implementing coping skills and preparing them to become successful adults.
Therapy Certifications and Professional Memberships
Acquiring the knowledge, skills, and certifications to treat clients holistically has included becoming certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a skills based approach to improving relationships and managing emotions; and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), which incorporates mindfulness into cognitive therapy to allow clients to better identify feelings and connect them to their thoughts.
I also obtained my Health Coaching certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. Poor nutrition can directly impact many areas of an individual’s life, including their mood, energy level, and decision-making skills. My comprehensive training allows me to help clients examine their food choices while working with proven psychotherapy methods to improve their overall well-being.
A member of The National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists, I have used hypnotherapy successfully to help clients work through negative thoughts and change unwanted behaviors. In addition, I am a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and a proud provider of Give an Hour™, a national network of volunteer mental health professionals who donate their time and expertise to help those in need.
