Counseling for Teens and Parents

Or perhaps you're a student who was at the top of your class, and now you’re really struggling.

You constantly feel overwhelmed by school, the competition, the never-ending assignments and deadlines. You may also be struggling with your friendships and relationships, that it just feels like too much and there are just too many demands on you.

Or maybe you’re a parent, and you’ve noticed your child is truly struggling and just not themselves. You’ve always been able to help them get back on their feet, but things are different and they need someone to talk to.

Students and Teens

You should be at the top of your game but instead, you feel like you’re running on empty. You feel like you can never stay on top of it all.

Or maybe it takes you forever to get to bed, because your mind keeps spinning, on all the “what ifs”, the relentless grind, competition, or maybe it's all the people that are counting on you.

Perhaps you’ve noticed that your relationships are suffering, you keep fighting with your partner, or just can’t make your relationships work. Everyone is telling you - you’re just not you anymore

Entrepreneurs and Professionals

Under the surface, have you ever felt like this?

Life doesn’t have to stay this way.

My clients walk away from therapy feeling safe, supported and armed with new knowledge, strategies, and tools they can use every day. If you’re tired of feeling stuck and are ready to take the next step, I would love to hear your story and help you thrive.

I help adolescents, adults and couples, challenge their depression, anxiety, and trauma and empower them to thrive. I specialize in providing counseling using research-based interventions that have been proven to produce results.

As a lifelong social worker and researcher I have nearly 20 years in the helping profession, and I bring that expertise to our therapeutic space by providing customized and data-driven treatment to help you experience the change you deserve.

Hi, I'm Dr. Jennifer Tang Cole, LMSW, Ph.D.

Common Issues We Can Help With:


Trauma can fundamentally impact the brain and affect your emotional well-being and relationships. If traumatic memories or PTSD have you feeling stuck in life, seeking support can help. I use eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help clients resolve past experiences and heal from the negative feelings associated with their traumas.

Strengthen Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem can come from traumatic stress, family dynamics, or mental health struggles. When you lack confidence, the rest of your life often suffers. My goal is to help you foster resilience and feel more empowered with yourself. You don't need to be optimistic all the time, but believing in yourself can help you make the best decisions for your well-being.

work stress and burnout

If you are experiencing burnout, overwhelmed by your workload, relentless company culture, or stress of job stability, therapy can help. Together, we'll unpack these work stressors and difficulties with your professional identity and review healthier coping strategies to manage stress. You can feel confident at work while also having a sense of balance in your personal life.

Parenting Support

Parenting is tough, and many parents experience guilt, uncertainty, depression, or anxiety while raising their children. You may worry about passing down toxic cycles to your own children. I am here to support new and experienced parents navigate their journeys. Therapy offers a safe place to explore your feelings and learn new ways to relate to your children.

Control Anxiety

Anxiety can manifest in both emotional and physical sensations. Anxiety disorders can make it challenging to stay present in your daily life. You may feel so overwhelmed, irritable or cynical that you can't focus or enjoy your relationships with others. Therapy can help you work through your triggers and develop healthier coping skills.

children & adolescent support

Youth are particularly susceptible to mental health issues, and they don't always have the words to describe how they’re feeling or the right coping strategies for dealing with their stress. I work with children and adolescents to strengthen emotional regulation and cultivate better self-esteem. As a parent, one of the best gifts you can give your child is to provide support and help them build their own toolkit for life.

A safe, creative and artistic space to explore your feelings and build a life-long toolkit.

Counseling for Adolescents

A safe and non-judgmental space to help you become the parent you want to be.
