Therapists Specializing in Adolescent Mental Health in Denver

Adolescence is a formative developmental phase of life full of rapid changes and unique challenges. Given the social, emotional, and physical changes occurring, it’s very normal to experience some degree of distress during this time. Therefore, it can be difficult to distinguish normal distress from more serious mental health concerns, particularly because adolescents can find it hard to communicate emotional and psychological difficulties. If symptoms such as persistent irritability, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, risk-taking behavior, or mood changes are negatively affecting an adolescents’ relationships or academic participation, seeking the opinion of a mental health professional may help.

A therapist will be able to discuss these symptoms and help choose the best fitting therapy type to help. Depending on the specific issues faced, therapists can help adolescents learn new skills for coping or communicating, deal with bullying, and examine thinking patterns in order to develop more helpful perspectives.

Below are therapists in Denver who specialize in working with young people and adolescents. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care. Visit their profiles to watch an introductory video and book a free initial call to find a good fit!

In the vast sea of therapist's in the world, I know how daunting it can feel to try to search through and find one that feels like they could be the right fit for you! Let me begin by assuring you that I am just as human as they come, and my goal is to help empower you to regain that feeling of control over yourself and your life as much as possible. I recognize that not everyone responds to therapy the same way, and I remain flexible to what works for YOU.

With the current state of the world, there have been so many unique challenges and adjustments we have been forced to make, and you may have been left feeling like you're drowning amidst the chaos. We aren't meant to go through this alone. I am here to help you navigate whatever has been coming up for you lately, at whatever pace you need to take it.

You may be wondering whether telehealth is the right choice for you, or if telehealth with ME is the right choice for you. Ultimately, the power is always in your hands to take the steps towards doing what is best for yourself. I encourage you to reach out and give me a call so that I can help you decide if this feels right!

Welcome! I know how daunting it can be to select a therapist and start this process in general, and I commend you for taking this important step for your child or yourself. I love working with older children, teens and adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem issues or relationship difficulties. I strive to provide a warm and safe environment in which we can explore, process, and deeply understand your experience, identify treatment goals and learn new strategies for coping with difficulties. My ultimate goal is to promote personal growth and help you or your child internalize our work so that you have the tools to overcome future obstacles in addition to the current ones.

If it sounds like I may be a good fit for you or your family, I welcome you to request a free phone consultation so that we can learn more about each other and determine next steps.

Hi! I’m a person-centered, strength-based therapist who believes that every individual is an expert in his/her/their own life. I help people uncover and use their own strengths to overcome obstacles and grow into their best selves. I’m passionate about validating individuals’ unique experiences while empowering them to find meaning and purpose in all areas of their lives.

I think that therapy can be so much more than a one-sided conversation! I believe it’s essential for clients to feel comfortable, and I strive to offer a relaxed, safe environment in which you can fully express yourself. Please tell me if something isn’t working for you! I’m dedicated to being collaborative, real, and honest – allowing, and even encouraging, humor to build our relationship and work through issues.

If you’re interested in learning more about me and seeing if we would be a good fit, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to meeting you!

Are you someone who finds themselves feeling overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated about their life? Do you sense you have little support from family and friends? Perhaps you're on edge and aren't able to relax? Or maybe that you can't remember a time when your world didn't run on chronic stress?

So you’ve noticed these feelings and have tried ways to challenge them. Start yoga, didn’t work. Read a self-help book suggested by a friend, didn’t work. Sought solace from your peers. They didn’t understand. Even Googled your symptoms. Yeah, that last one was a bad idea.

Maybe you even know what is causing you so much turmoil. Grief and loss, discrimination, infidelity, or trauma.

If you find yourself saying yes to any of the above, then you're on the right Zencare profile.

Our clinicians are equipped with the clinical tools to assist you with achieving your goals, overcoming your struggles, and finding the most authentic ways for you to live your life. They will teach you skills to manage your feelings, thoughts, and actions. They will work with you to find your footing in a world that always feels off-kilter.

We're honored that you would consider letting our clinicians be your guide to a balanced life.

We all need to be seen, and heard, at any age. Being scared, anxious, or even depressed are sometimes part of being a person. Our fast-paced digital world can present unique challenges for our bodies and minds. I am happy to meet you wherever you are, and will approach each visit with a sense of compassionate curiosity. Just as we hunger for stories of other people to help guide us, you may wonder about your own story. Why are you here? What must you do with your life?

I work with adolescents (12+) through older, retired adults and specialize in issues of transition, anxiety, adjustment, depression, and vocation. I am not the expert in your life; you are. But sometimes we need help with perspective. Together, we will create a plan that will help you reduce the most difficult aspects of your life and help you determine how to move through them. What cannot be changed can be reviewed, understood, and ultimately, accepted.

I am so glad you stopped by!

At Four Seeds Counseling, I encourage value driven actions within a safe and confidential relationship, where clients can hope to gain self-esteem and personal empowerment, learning to trust themselves and others. I am passionate about coming alongside college-aged to adult clients wrestling with depression, anxiety, and self-worth due to family, childhood, trauma, and relational struggles. I use a myriad of theories and modalities, including DBT-informed skills and practices, alongside professional knowledge and experience with complex family systems, substance use, mood disorders, and extensive trauma. In the therapeutic context, I help clients relate differently to pain and discomfort while they create the life they desire.

Finding a therapist you connect with is an important aspect of effective therapy. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I hope to serve clients with respect and empathy while encouraging them in their personal journey of growth. I am both honored and committed to meeting clients where they are and helping them achieve their personal and relational goals.

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.
