Adolescence can be a difficult time, for the teenager and for his or her parents! Teens face
tough issues like battling low-self esteem, stressing about planning for life after high school and
figuring out if they want to fit in or stand out. Families often struggle with challenges including
communication, setting boundaries and just getting along.

All teens and parents need support. Sometimes getting it from family, friends, schools or
religious institutions is enough. And sometimes it’s not… When the individual teen or the
family needs something more, therapy can be a great resource.

Trisha has worked with adolescents in various settings, including mental health programs,
outpatient substance abuse facilities and schools. She welcomes the opportunity to work with
teens and their families in her private practice.
