I understand the demands on young adults to succeed academically, professionally, and socially. As such, the transition from adolescence to adulthood - and the many changes and challenges that come with it - continue long past high school and college. My approach is active and directive, a level of engagement my clients appreciate. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that rapidly promotes safety, rapport, and trust.
My clients experience early results, building confidence in their continued improvement. As work continues, you will learn concrete tools and tangible skills to improve your behaviors, mental health, and job/academic performance, skills that will carry over into other areas of your life. When work or school performance is a concern, my focus is the integration of mental health issues with these needs, two aspects of a person’s life that are rarely addressed simultaneously or understood as interdependent.
My practice is geared toward helping my clients conquer emotional, behavioral, and work-related challenges by:
- Lessening the impact of anxiety and depression
- Coaching to understand learning processes and better utilize learning tools
- Building socialization skills and modeling social behavior
- Establishing structure and routines to support daily life and accomplish goals
- Improving confidence and self-esteem
- Developing coping skills to manage stress
- Addressing technology dependence and “addiction”
- Supporting development of hobbies and other productive, healthy activities
