Psychotherapy for Adolescents, Adults, Couples, and Families


IlanaRei has been working with adolescents and their families for her entire career. Anything can and will happen when working with adolescents, and that is what is so exciting and rewarding about this unique age group (12 through 22 years old). IlanaRei takes a straightforward approach to working with teenagers to improve self-esteem, teach coping skills, and increase real-world awareness to help them achieve their dreams for their futures as adults.

Adolescent Treatment Issues

  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Family Issues
  • Alcohol and Substance Abuse
  • ADHD Symptoms and Behavior
  • Sexuality and Gender Issues
  • Oppositional and Defiant Behavior
  • Divorce
  • Grief and Loss
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior

Treatment Modalities

IlanaRei uses an eclectic approach with adolescents to tailor the treatment intervention to fit the clients’ needs. Individual therapy is most common and appropriate when working with teenagers. However, family therapy is also an option, if needed. Parents and other family members are encouraged to participate in treatment through parent consultations in order to further improve the home environment and improve family functioning.


IlanaRei has been working with adults for nearly 10 years. She has worked with people from all walks of life and has treated a wide variety of mental health concerns. IlanaRei works with every adult age group, including young adults, parents, midlife, and the elderly. IlanaRei works from a relational model of psychotherapy that starts where the client is.

Treatment Modalities

Using a combination of therapeutic techniques, IlanaRei creates a safe, open, and secure environment to facilitate healing, skill building, and meaningful change. Working with the client, IlanaRei identifies specific individual goals for each client, then guides the client in achieving those goals. As goals are achieved, new goals emerge, and therefore treatment is constantly evolving and adapting to fit the client's present needs.
