Do you have a teen or adolescent whose attitude and behavior leaves you feeling confused and/or frustrated? Do they seem more and more distant from you? Do you feel worried about your teen but cannot seem to get them to talk to you about what’s going on in their life? I have years of experience working with teens as a credentialed middle & high school Health Science teacher. I have created curriculum and taught difficult subjects such as hygiene, sex education, and mental health issues related to self-harm and body image. I have extensive experience working with transitional aged youth for Santa Barbara County, and have been a therapist for adolescents out of the juvenile system and in group homes. I provide a safe place for your teen to discuss difficult issues and create solution based plans to help them emotionally regulate and normalize obstacles they may be encountering.
