Individual & Family Therapy with Jenny

Child and Adolescent Therapy

Psychotherapy is helpful to children and adolescents for a variety of reasons. Therapy allows you to gain emotional support, resolve conflicts with people, understand feelings and problems, and try out new solutions to old problems. Goals for therapy may be as specific as changing a behavior, or more general such as having less anxiety.  Here are some of my specialty areas in child and adolescent therapy:

  • Play Therapy

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Coping & Adjustment

  • Behavioral Management

  • Social Skill Development

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder

  • Nutrition

  • Relationship Issues

Individual Therapy

Feeling comfortable, safe, and understood are very important to the relationship that develops between the therapist and the patient. This type of trusting environment makes it much easier for a person to express his/her thoughts and feelings and to use the therapy in a helpful way. Here are some of my specialty areas in individual therapy: 

  • Stress Management/Relaxation Skills

  • Anxiety/Panic Disorder

  • Depression

  • Grief and Loss

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Trauma Sensitive Yoga

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness

  • Relationship Issues

  • Nutrition

  • Work, Career, and Transitional Issues

Family Therapy

The family is a child's world, and as such, when something is wrong with their family something is wrong with their world. Family therapy is aimed at modifying communication among family members so that issues can be dealt with in a therapeutic manner.  Here are some of my specialty areas in family therapy:

  • Parenting Skills and Education

  • Communication Skills and Conflict Resolution

  • Dealing with Separation/Divorce

  • Relationship Issues
