Navigating Young Adulthood With Support
In Laurie Grengs, young adults find a therapist who offers a strong feeling of compassion and extensive knowledge of the human mind and how to effectively create strategies that help people feel better about their lives. The goal of individual therapy is to increase self-awareness. Increasing self-awareness can happen on your own, of course, but the complexity of most psychological issues—especially if the involve such things as childhood trauma and other factors of a complicated nature—makes it far more difficult to gain greater self-awareness without the assistance of someone who is trained to provide help.

Laurie Grengs can meet your adolescent where they are and help them move forward in a more positive way.
