Los Angeles Therapist, West Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire
The teenage years can be challenging - both for teens and the families who love them. Teens living in Los Angeles have a particular set of pressures which can compound problems. I have extensive experience working with L.A. adolescents and teens from all walks of life. I work with several L.A. schools and receive referrals on individual students. Having children myself has opened my eyes even more to the difficulties of the teen years. I work with teens and their parents (if appropriate) to work through problems. Teens struggle with a range of issues - social pressures, school pressures, relationship problems, family problems, divorce, step parents, temptations, self-esteem, and of course, depression and anxiety. I work empathetically to align with the teen experience and help the teen find new ways of coping and being, of being happier in the world.
My therapy practice is in the Mid Wishire area of Los Angeles.
