I have over 16 years of experience in working with adolescents and their families. My graduate training focused primarily on helping teens and their families overcome the issues that can cause them problems and inhibit them from becoming the most that they can be. I regularly work with the Department of Mental Health, school districts around Los Angeles and Orange county, and Orange County Social services to provide treatment to adolescents who are having difficulties in school, with their family relationships and with peer relationships. I have experience in treating issues such as:

  • Adjustment problems
  • Poor family relationships
  • Poor peer relationships
  • Low grades
  • Self-destructive behavior
  • Oppositional behavior
  • ADHD/attention problems
  • Anger management
  • Violent behavior
  • Self-injurious behavior
  • Substance abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bi-Polar disorder
  • Serious mental illness
