Stress affects everyone and a significant number of youth struggle with anxiety. If left unaddressed, stress and anxiety can negatively impact academic functioning, social relationships, and family dynamics. This talk will provide you with an understanding about where stress comes from, when symptoms turn from stress into a possible anxiety disorder, and how to build stress insulators. It will also cover several strategies for addressing specific sources of stress including homework, social challenges, family relationships, and the holidays.

She completed an APA-accredited internship at a community mental health center for youth in Topeka, KS where she received specialized training in treatment of anxiety disorders. Thereupon, she completed her postdoctoral training at a private practice in Rhode Island and focused on psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and young adults.
