Adolescents present with unique challenges and therefore the work I do with them is uniquely different. My work often follows these common themes:
- Stress management (academic, interpersonal, and other)
- Personal and identity development
- Managing international transitions
- Time management
- Anxiety, depression, and eating disorders
Confidentiality is important and unique when it comes to adolescents. It is important that both teenagers and their parents feel safe in our work together.
Confidentiality can be broken if you are a harm to yourself or others, or if someone is harming you. If confidentiality needs to be broken for these reasons, I will discuss it with you before taking any further steps, giving you as much control as possible.
