Clinical Therapy Services for Adolescence Through Adulthood


Dawn’s approach to adolescent therapy is strength-based and solution focused. She empowers adolescents to reflect on what matters deeply to them—not what matters to their parents or teachers or coaches—but to them as individuals.


Whether you are struggling with anger, anxiety, or anything in between, I can help you to develop confidence in your abilities. Together, we can discover your personal strengths, bring balance, and gain perspective to problems.


Find common ground to strengthen your relationship by setting boundaries, examining language, and reframing your expectations for one another.


Nothing is ever perfect, but you can learn to balance what is hard with what is good and even what is funny about your family.
