Middle school and high school students and parents
When I meet with middle school and high school students and their parents, we discuss and evaluate the history of current issues, medical, academic, and social history, current enjoyments and challenges, and goals for psychotherapy. In a safe, confidential and caring environment, we work together on their current challenges by gaining insight and learning new coping skills and behaviors. Parents are always included in the therapeutic process. I use evidence-based approaches including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and meditation.
