Adolescence is a difficult time in life. Teens today face pressures of family, school, extra curricular activities, peer relationships and figuring out who they truly are. I assist young people to build the necessary skills to navigate these waters while building their self-esteem, decision making skills and communication abilities.
(Corinne specializes in the treatment of anxiety, behavioral and mood disorders for adolescents.)
Therapy is a private and personal journey. Each person has their own reasons for seeking help at one time or another. I am here to try and work along side of you as you begin to gain a more in-depth look at your self, your coping skills, improved ways of communicating, healing, accepting and so much more. The more you invest in yourself the more you can achieve.
Every family is unique as are the hurdles they face. I help to create a blame free, open environment where families can learn to communicate and problem solve in a healthy way. Gain the necessary tools to improve your family's functioning.
If you or your family is going through a seperation or divorce please see the parent coaching page. Corinne believes deeply in the parenting process and has shown many families how to co-parent successfully during these hard times. Not being together does not mean you don't have to be on the same page when it comes to your kids.
Children do not have the ability to express themselves verbally as adults do in a therapeutic setting. Play, art, music and a wide variety of other modalities assist a child to tell us what is going on with them and can guide us how to best assist them. Working closely with the parents to develop strategies that can be useful in school and at home to improve a child's functioning so they can get the most out of life.
