Transition is always challenging, & adolescence is one of the most challenging ones. Research shows a growing number of teens are feeling isolated and alone, leading to depression, anxiety, and unhelpful thinking patterns & behavior. Women also experience different roles, requiring transitional skills and a listening ear. 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, & that in the company of others & 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 & women, 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 for adolescents (ages 12-25) and women 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!
