Groups offered now are Parenting & Partnering, Nourish (Mindfulness Group) and our 'Imperfectly Perfect' Teen Group.
Mental wellness should be as normal as taking care of our physical health. It doesn't mean you are weak when seeking help, it means you care about you and you can't be 'you' if you are used up and burnt out. Would you like practical ways to better your mental health, reduce stress, and improve your brain health. I work with young adults and women of all ages. Mindfulness is the hallmark of our practice whereby we incorporate the breath, meditation and yoga, along with traditional talk therapy. MBSR and meditation are used in session to alleviate stress and anxiety and foster personal growth. .

Sometimes our thoughts and emotions overwhelm us to the point we feel paralyzed or that we have no control of our own being. Maybe you have experienced a loss or trauma and find you are struggling to heal or move forward. Perhaps, it is your teenager that is hurting and you aren't sure how to help anymore. You might just be looking for clarity or direction on your journey through life. Whatever you are facing, let's work together to make those challenges become purposeful experiences.

Being a teenager today has many challenges which is why my focus in to meet them where they are and work side by side with them and their families to help provide relief. Many times, adolescents do not get help because they don't want to talk about their feelings or open up to yet another adult. As a full time social worker for the past decade, my career has been focused on supporting and equipping teens with the tools to be successful and productive in their every day life. We all need to feel loved and affirmed and it is my hope that each client feels valued and validated for who they are the first day they start counseling.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Rockwall and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
