Here to help you walk the road to recovery and embark on a journey of self-discovery.



Hi! I’m Dr. Tahaney. I specialize in helping adolescents and young adults with problematic alcohol or drug use as well as anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. My goal is to create a non-judgmental, supportive, accepting, validating, and compassion-filled environment for you to begin to heal from and learn to cope with the difficulties life has thrown your way.

I offer diagnostic evaluation and individual therapy for adolescents and adults. All services are offered via video conference. I’d love to talk with you more about how I can help you or your teen in therapy. Please use the “Request an Appointment” button at the top of the page to request a free 15-minute consultation today. I look forward to hearing from you!

Substance Use

Heavy alcohol and/or drug use are very common, particularly among young adults, and can begin as early as pre-adolescence for some individuals. In my experience, heavy or problematic alcohol and drug use almost always co-occur with other psychiatric symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, or perhaps most commonly, history of experiencing trauma or abuse.

Grief can be a reaction to a variety of significant life events, including death, divorce, ending of a friendship, loss of a job, loss of health, moving to a new home or city, disability, or financial loss. There’s no “right” way to grieve and we know that the grieving process isn’t linear- the previously defined “stages” of grief rarely if ever occur in a specific order and we can even experience a given stage multiple times. I look at grief not as a phase or season of life but as something that we carry with us in different ways as life moves forward.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common categories of psychological impairment experienced by teens and adults alike. Importantly, anxiety and depression can often occur together or they can be difficult to differentiate, especially in teens. A full diagnostic evaluation is often helpful in order to pin down appropriate diagnos(es) and to guide us in where to begin in therapy and what specific skills or techniques to use.

Adjustment disorders develop as a result of difficulty adapting or adjusting to significant changes in life. They are particularly common among adolescents (ages 15-25) given the increased number of changes and developmental milestones that occur (for example, transition to college or living away from family, increased independence and responsibility, and new and evolving relationships). While trauma itself can trigger an adjustment disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder can also be a result, particularly if the traumatic event was life-threatening.
