Are you feeling frustrated with figuring out why your relationships with friends, partners, teachers or family are so hard? Is it stressful to try to figure out all of these other relationships while you’re still trying to figure out who the heck you want to be in this world?
Are you often feeling like you aren’t good enough, and you’re lost on who to turn to about all of this “stuff” you have stored inside. You don’t want to show it, but you do want things to change. You want to figure out how to deal with these stressful relationships and figure out who and how you want to be in this world. You want to deal with it… but you’re not sure how.

Plenty of teens I have worked with, have come to the first session of therapy a bit skeptical. I won’t preach to you about the benefits of therapy, I’d rather you experience that yourself. I will say that you are here because you are struggling with something right now. I’ve connected with many teens who’ve struggled with navigating sexuality, the important relationships in their lives, and decision making. Perhaps your relationships with friends have been on the rocks, or you just don’t really feel like you’re fitting in anywhere. Or, maybe your anxiety has been on over-drive; you work hard to do well but you feel like you just can’t ever reach the point where you feel good enough. You feel like you aren’t enough in some way. Adults in your life just don’t get it, and you’ve been feeling like you can’t really trust anyone enough to talk about all of the crap you’re dealing with. I hear you.
I don’t know you, and I won’t pretend that I am an expert of you. This therapy thing takes a team- me and you. Depending on your situation, it could sometimes include pulling in other important people in your life too, at certain times. Even though you may not be sure, there really is help and there really is hope. Together we can venture through the road of self-discovery that you have already begun, and we can move towards change. If you want to ask me some questions, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at (215) 437-3414. There’s no obligation for a quick consultation. Sometimes you just need to take that first step. You’ve got this.
A Happier, Healthier You
One on one sessions will be held in a private setting that provides a non-judgmental space for exploring your story and what you are struggling with. Together we will figure out the ways that work best for you to manage the issues you’re struggling with in a meaningful way.
Often, teens have endured some kind of trauma in their past that has greatly impacted them. Sometimes they do not even realize that what they experienced was a trauma. The truth is that millions of Americans experience trauma, and trauma can alter how the brain functions. Signs and symptoms can vary from person to person. Sometimes signs and symptoms can be finding it difficult to trust people in your life, constantly being on guard, sudden panic attacks and intrusive, anxiety-ridden thoughts. Unresolved trauma can impact your quality of life.
It can feel overwhelming, but feeling better is possible. I am a trauma-informed therapist and offer a variety of therapeutic approaches to best support you and work with you as an equal collaborator in your treatment and healing. What is most important is the connection you and I make as therapist and client, so the first step is simply to call or e-mail and see if you get the vibe that we could work well together. Change is possible.
