Services for Adolescents

+ Adolescent/Teen Individual Therapy - Ages 11-19

Adolescence is a particularly difficult time. Jessica uses creative and evidenced-based modalities and interventions from talk, music, art, and sand tray therapies to help engage your adolescent or teen - and to help them master emotional control and to empower them to make better choices with their behaviors.

These sessions are typically 45-50 minutes.

Every few sessions, I request a parent or guardian meeting with me in person or by phone to discuss the child's progress. This is important so that parents can remain an active collaborator on their child's progress, and so that I can help parents to understand the science behind their child's behavior, learn to how incorporate what was done in session at home, and to give parents an opportunity to report on their child's behavior witnessed at home or school.
