I have helped teen and adult clients with concerns including depression, anxiety, exposure to trauma, grief/loss, stress/overwhelm, relationship issues, and life transitions.
We may often find ourselves trying to cope with our struggles on our own - and we might make it work for a while, but over time we can become exhausted, worn down, and confused. I believe reaching out and seeking therapy is a powerful way to support and care for ourselves. In therapy, we acknowledge our challenges, explore our stories & strengths, and learn new skills to promote change, healing, growth and resilience. My goal as a therapist is to create an environment that is open, welcoming, affirming and supportive, building a safe space for you to work towards feeling better, feeling more connected, and being your best self.

Deciding to pursue therapy for your child, teen , yourself, or your family is a difficult yet rewarding decision. It is not often that we give ourselves the time and attention to focus on our feelings, frustrations and desires, but doing so can change our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. My theoretical orientation integrates Mindfulness and solution-focused therapy with cognitive behavioral interventions that will reduce stress immediately.

I specialize in working with adolescent and college-aged girls/women and supporting them with their evolving identities, healthy boundaries and relationship skills, body acceptance, and nurturing self-compassion and confidence.
My practice focuses on supporting adolescents, young adults, and adults dealing with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety (generalized and social), trauma, grief/loss, life transitions, relationship issues, stress management, and other mental health concerns. I enjoy working with teens and supporting them in navigating the unique complexities associated with this life phase. In addition, I work with families to help create bridges of communication and understanding between teens and their parents. I am a strong believer in the importance of exercise, meditation/mindfulness/yoga, social connection, and nutrition to help us reach our optimal state of well-being.

Being an adolescent /young adult can feel amazing, while also feeling confusing with all of the changes experienced during this time. I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and their families, through individual, family and group counseling. I primarily utilize therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as part of individual and group counseling. Group counseling can enable individuals to form bonds with peers in a structured environment; understand that others can relate to their concerns; and share personal feelings that they have difficulty communicating.

Hi there! I am a life coach at LionHeart Services, LLC. Life coaching is a non-clinical approach to life work that helps individuals identify patterns of thinking and behavior that are getting in the way of achieving life goals. LionHeart approaches coaching using practical biblical principles that are time-tested and proven successful. It is important to know that coaching is not clinical and if a higher level of care is needed, we can continue care but it will need to take place with simultaneous psychotherapy from another provider.

Things have been hard for people lately. You are not alone if you have been feeling stretched too thin. Relationships can be challenging; learning communication skills to express yourself authentically to your partner is what I can offer couples. Understanding your own feelings first, learning emotional language to communicate those feelings, and learning how to listen and be heard in your relationship is the basis of what I do when working with couples. For parents, I help you see your child as a whole person from birth, and assist you in becoming a confident leader, developing healthy attachments, and fostering emotional security.

I consider myself to be a warm, gentle, and supportive listener, and I want to make sure you feel deeply heard and understood. Sometimes it can be challenging to identify what it is that’s causing us to feel down or “stuck.” At other times, we may know all too well what is holding us back, but we’re unable to follow through on strategies to make things better. Wherever you are on your journey, I’m happy to be your ally and encourage you to find more joy and satisfaction in your life. With individuals, my preferred methods include Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Balance, relief, peace, a greater understanding in relationships, or whatever appears to be “in the way” of achieving a better way of living life are all attainable. Life can be confusing and at times difficult to know how to navigate ourselves because of all that we are dealing with on a daily basis. Getting help to sort it out, removing obstacles, and gaining knowledge about our emotions are essential to wellness. Together we will collaborate, explore, develop trust, and learn how to make the changes you are desiring.

On the outside it seems like you have everything together, but inside you feel unhappy and stuck. Instead of thriving, you are overwhelmed and exhausted. Part of you feels like you just can't manage it all. You spend your days feeling sad, irritated, and afraid. You wonder if you have the ability to heal and move through the obstacles in your way. Maybe you've experienced a trauma and you feel like you can't move forward in your relationships.

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 Arroyo Grande and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
