I am especially passionate about working with teenagers who are dealing with bullying, peer pressure, individuation, identity development, social anxieties, and academic pressures. I feel that teens aren’t often taken seriously because of their age and their struggle to find their voice. my goal is to remedy that and provide a safe and accepting ENVIRONMENT where they can open up and grow.
