Adolescence is arguably the most challenging period of life. Research shows growing numbers of teens are feeling isolated and alone, left to deal with life's difficulties with limited personal and interpersonal resources, and leading to depression, anxiety, and unhelpful/destructive thinking patterns and behavior. This journey called life is full of ups and downs, joy and pain, being known and feeling alone... I believe that God's creation says something significant about God's character, and that in the company of others and the context of the outdoors, we are challenged to new levels of thinking and experiencing life.

I use a variety of techniques in my work with teens, beginning with a person-centered approach. These include: individual sessions in an office setting, incorporating art, talk therapy, CBT, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Based Therapy; and individual/group outdoor Adventure Therapy sessions, utilizing managed risk in multiple adventure-based settings.

I offer compassionate and challenging outpatient treatment on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, providing support for day-to-day living, growing, and relating. We will work towards health for the whole person: mind, soul, body, and relationships. Come as you are, and see what happens!
