Although each teen is different, many experience feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression. They often feel that only their friends understand them and that they can't count on the adults in their life to really get it. 

Jeff Palitz, LMFT, works with kids ages 13 and older only.


Since 1999, Jeff, has worked with teens facing a wide variety of issues. From social stress to self-esteem to ADHD, anxiety, depression and anger, Jeff has developed effective strategies for relating to teens, helping them feel understood and helping their parents relate to them more effectively. Even if your teen is initially resistant to coming to counseling, if you can get him or her in the door, Jeff will work hard to build a relationship that supports their growth towards a healthy future.

Teens are unique.

They need a unique therapist.

Teens are strong.Teens can change their lives.
