Adolescents & Teens
My experience with working with adolescents, teens, and young adults and their families is extensive through practical and educational knowledge. I have previously held the position as the team lead school based therapist for an entire county. I have worked with clients who have experienced trauma, sexual assault, physical and sexual abuse/molestation, bullying (both perpetrators and victims), suicidal ideations, self-harm, behavioral issues, self-esteem issues, anxiety (general, social, etc.), depression, issues with sexual identity, adjustment issues, LGBTQ+, school related problems and issues choosing a career path, issues defining who they are, and a PLETHORA of other issues.
Challenges adolescents are facing these days:
Most socialization is done via social media (i.e. SnapChat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc)
Time management/study skills
Sexual orientation/gender identity
Establishing healthy boundaries/assertiveness
