You are not alone


Challenges for Introverted Teens can play out in a number of ways.

Introverts account for approximately 50% of the population, yet many can sometimes grow up feeling:

  • Misunderstood by friends and family

  • That their need for quiet and solitude is not valued

  • Like they are simply not enough

  • That there is something wrong with them

  • That they need to get over being shy

  • They are too sensitive, or

  • That they simply don’t fit in

So how do young introverts, deep thinkers, sensitive, observant, and quietly focused teens develop a healthy sense of self?

With a little help! From my quiet, calm office to the way I develop my teen groups, I take into consideration the needs of introverts. I assist teens and their parents in learning how to understand and appreciate who they are and how they interact with their environment. Together, we will work toward developing ways to:

  • Understand and embrace emotional sensitivity

  • Calm and nourish the body and mind to better manage energy and mood

  • Develop intuition and non-linear forms of problem-solving

  • Assertively advocate for their needs at school and home, and

  • Leverage their strengths in school and future career paths.

Even my Create & Cope Art Therapy Groups offer a gentle way for anxious, shy, or quiet teens to stretch into the kind of connection most introverts actually crave – deep, thoughtful, creative, and compassionate connection. Whether through individual, group, or some combination, your teen will gain new perspectives, self-confidence, and the skills to cope with the demands of adolescence. So will you.

Are you ready to find the right support for your teen?
