Life is full of challenges and while no one asks to struggle or feel bad, with the assistance of a therapist, one can get unstuck and live life in a more empowering, satisfying and peaceful manner. Concerns such as anxiety, depression, loss and grief, eating/body image, overthinking, relationship struggles, stress management and trauma can be treated. Children do not come with a manual on how to raise them; parenting becomes painfully more difficult when a child or teen struggles with such things as low self esteem, acting out, anxiety, academics, and following rules. I treat children, teens, and adults.

As a therapist, I enjoy working with children, teens, college students, young adults, and families on a variety of presenting concerns, such as anxiety & depression, transitioning into adulthood and the world of work, parenting, finding purpose and meaning, women's issues, and infertility.
Misconception: You only see a counselor when having a full blown crisis. Truth: Daily stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelm, anger, and worry are exhausting. Misconception: You're stuck with no options. Truth: You have the ability to make important changes in your life. Misconception: Everyone should be happy everyday or something is wrong. Truth: Adversity and failure is universal. Without it, we wouldn't recognize happiness. Misconception: It seems like everyone has a better life than me, more exciting, more amazing...more everything. Truth: Not likely.

As frightening as it is to watch our children try to navigate the challenges of our changing world, once we recognize their struggles, we can also recognize the opportunity for growth.
My professional experience is with adolescents, preteens and young adults. As young people try to navigate the social and developmental changes that come with this time of accelerated physical, cognitive, and emotional growth, many struggle to figure out who they are in the world. This struggle can lead to poor choices, conflict with family and friends, and difficulty feeling confident. In some cases the challenges compound and young people develop mental health issues. I have had the privilege of spending countless hours providing therapy to adolescents with anxiety, depression, self-injury, school failure, low self-confidence, and peer/family conflict.
