I'm a strengths based play therapist who believes that EVERYONE has GREATNESS inside of them! My goal when working with children and families is to focus on their strengths to build positive self esteem and to help restore peace and balance to the family unit. I specifically work with children who are trying to process change, divorce/separation, bullying, social rejection, grief, and school anxiety, just to name a few. I help children to recognize their own greatness, develop coping and problem solving skills, process trauma, and provide parents with the tools to help manage behaviors and emotionally support their kids at home.

Philosophers, poets, religious and spiritual leaders, all talk about the human condition. But what does it mean for the rest of us? Everyone runs into situations that produce anxiety, depression, disappointment, a need to make difficult decisions, tension in relationships, and other "discomforts" that we wish would go away. Sometimes we figure out how to get through these situations on our own but sometimes we need a little help. That's where we come in. HBH Counseling is a group of therapists dedicated to providing effective, evidence based therapy to help you to address life's situations, big and small.

Are you troubled and stressed in a relationship, but don't know how to change things? Do you say yes when you want to say no? Are you covering up your pain with destructive behaviors? Do you judge yourself harshly and feel you are just never good enough? Negative thoughts, anxiety and low self esteem can be an enormous burden, making it a crushing chore to just get through the day. They affect your relationships, your ability to work, and can lead to substance abuse, over-eating and other behaviors that can pull you into a downward spiral.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.

I believe life is directed and driven from our innermost being. I believe our hopes, desires, and our actions are motivated from within. Many times those motivations are difficult to see, explain, or to understand. This can leave us with questions as to why life doesn't seem to work for us. Why do we carryout unproductive behaviors and maintain unproductive relationships. Lets explore together the why, and consider alternative ways to approach life.

While I miss the face to face visits with my clients, we have adjusted, and even recognized the benefits. Some say scheduling a teletherapy appointment is less intimidating, no concerns about finding the office or running into a neighbor. We can meet during a lunch break, after the kids go to sleep or while the baby naps. These are tough times, therapy can help.
