Hi, my name is Jennifer Cervantes and I am a compassionate and dedicated therapist specializing in working with adolescents. With a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by teenagers, I aim to create a safe and non-judgmental space where they can freely express their thoughts and emotions. My approach to therapy is collaborative and client-centered, allowing each adolescent to actively participate in their own healing process. I strive to build a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients, fostering trust and open communication. By doing so, I believe we can work together to develop effective coping skills, improve emotional well-being, and navigate the complexities of adolescence. Through evidence-based modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques, I help adolescents manage and overcome various issues including anxiety, depression, self-esteem concerns, school-related stress, peer pressure, and family conflicts. I also recognize the importance of addressing broader systemic factors that may impact an adolescent's life, and I integrate a multicultural and social justice perspective into my practice. As a therapist, I am committed to remaining up-to-date on the latest research and incorporating innovative approaches into my work. I believe in the power of ongoing professional development, attending trainings and workshops to continuously enhance my skills and knowledge. Whether your teenager is struggling with academic pressures, emotional challenges, or other difficulties, my goal is to support them in developing healthy coping strategies, fostering resilience, and achieving personal growth. Together, we can navigate the path towards healing and empowerment. I welcome you to take the next step towards supporting your adolescent's mental health by reaching out. Let's work together to help them thrive during this pivotal stage of their lives.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together we will talk about what has been going on now, in the past, and your goals for therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strength is aligning with adolescents and helping them move past whatever is holding them back in their journey.
