Adolescence is a unique and exciting phase of life. Teenagers are immersed in the process of developing their identity while also trying to manage the stress of academic and social pressures. I create a supportive environment in which teens can talk freely and gain insight into self and others. I support teens in gaining skills to navigate life’s challenges.
I have 2 years experience volunteering with the TeenScreen program in Marin which provides mental health screening and education to Bay Area students. Prior to becoming a therapist, I volunteered for 4 years as a teen mentor and group leader in Kansas City, MO.
