Does your teen suffer emotionally for days after a gentle teasing?
Some teens have a highly responsive nervous system. For them, their emotional experience is at such a constant intensity that it can impact their self-image, school performance, social life, and family relationships. Their extreme sensitivity can make them prone to anxiety and depression — in the face of stressful situations.
I specialize in working with shy, sensitive and anxious teens, and can empower your adolescent with the coping skills they need to thrive in the world. I will teach them how to to digest their troubling experiences, as well as give them self-soothing techniques they can utilize in the face of stress, “perceived” rejection, and social anxiety.
By guiding them through creative discussions and exercises, I help uncover and address the social and emotional challenges that your teen is struggling with. I can help them sift through their past experiences and emotional triggers for nuggets of wisdom, and reframe unpleasant memories as opportunities for growth. I also support them in setting healthy boundaries, and show them how to prepare for future situations that they might deem uncomfortable or overwhelming.
My style is a collaborative effort between myself and your teen, with the intention of creating a fun and uplifting experience for them. I encourage teens to create a vision of the experience of life that they would like to have, and then support them in their journey towards manifesting it.
