As a mother of three children herself, Dr. Squyres understands the needs of preadolescents and teenagers both personally and professionally.  Young people often benefit from discussing sensitive issues or emotional problems with a trusted adult who is not a family member.  Dr. Squyres is particularly skilled at maintaining a secure confidential relationship with a teen or "tween" while keeping concerned parents apprised of goals and progress in therapy.  Dr. Squyres can help with:
