I am convinced that being an adolescent is only getting more difficult- between the rise of social media & technology, the ever-present body standards we are shown, and the increased push for higher achievement and success. Anxiety feels more pervasive than ever before throughout this developmental stage.

I have had the privilege of working in both the High School setting and in K-8's, where I get to see first hand the need for support and understanding with these populations. I bring that knowledge of the school setting, mixed with my understanding of anxiety, depression and social pressures, to support adolescents in a holistic way.

I am able to provide support and understanding for a variety of topics ranging from stress around college applications/admissions, social pressures, body image, self-esteem, and anxiety. This is a space to give your adolescent that time and focus to be seen & heard, and given opportunities to try new techniques to dealing with their "overwhelm." 

"It's sad, actually, because my anxiety keeps me from enjoying things as much as I should at this age." -Amanda Seyfried
