Santa Monica Teen Therapist

Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it. –H. Hulburt

Teenagers have unique needs when it comes to counseling. At different ages we pass through distinct developmental phases with specific tasks, capabilities, and limitations. When working with teens, a therapist needs special knowledge and training to provide therapeutic interventions that take a teen's developmental phase into account.

We absolutely love working with teens and we find that as a team of younger therapists we are able to make deep connections with teens and meet them on their level. To build trust in a relationship with a teenager, it’s important to find ways to connect with them and relate to them using their own experiences. I have a broad range of interests that help me connect with teens including art, writing, surfing, volleyball, and playing piano and guitar.

All of these approaches are research-proven to be effective.

How We Work

Teens tend to work best in therapy when they feel they have a sense of autonomy because their primary developmental task is individuation. We always take these considerations into account and tailor our interventions to suit the needs of each teen with whom we work.

We have special training in adolescent development and specialized experience working with youth ages 12-18. When working with youth, We implement a range of research-based, empirically proven techniques, specific to your child’s developmental phase, in order to ensure therapy will be most effective.
