Activities that the adolescent enjoys are used as a medium to bond and promote change. Healthy recreation and life-skill building are emphasized. Most teens learn to trust and open up more quickly, and are able to apply the skills obtained to their real life situations. 

I have tailored many treatment plans to include mentoring services. I am available to pick your child up from school or home to go to the following activities. Also, there will always be a therapeutic component in our work. The therapy is happening more covertly and is not lost; but rather, enhanced because of the uniqueness of the treatment format. 

Examples of mentoring sessions include: Visiting coffee shops, hiking, walking/jogging, rock climbing, going out to eat, shopping, going to the bank (for money management skills), and more.
