Individual counseling for Teens and Young Adults -- Deborah Tucker, M.A., M.F.T.

Deborah Tucker, Simi Valley therapist and counselor

I really enjoy working with teenagers and young adults.  As the mother of two twenty-something sons, I know how challenging these years can be for parents.  As a therapist, I know that teens sometimes flounder and lose their way, and need some help to get back on track.  Sometimes young people go through a lot of depression and anxiety, and learning some tools to cope with their feelings can make all the difference.

You've worked hard as a parent to get your children to this point, and you wouldn't be looking for help for them if you didn't love them and take their problems seriously.  I think that young people like working with me because I take them seriously, too.  I find that many teens and young adults experience a lot of "discounting" by adults outside their family, and some end up feeling very discouraged or angry.  I work to help them get back on track, and it's very rewarding to watch them blossom again.

Some teens prefer to come individually,  some need to be seen with their families; often we do both, always depending on what the family wants and needs.   For more information, please take a look at our family counseling page.  I see teens from Simi Valley, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, and the Conejo Valley area.

If you'd like some help for your teen or young adult, please call me at 805-583-3976 x 733.  If you prefer, you may contact me 

I hope this information is helpful.  Please call our office if you have more questions.
