Does your child seem sad or withdrawn, become defiant or aggressive at home? Are they having a hard time making friends at school? Have they ever come to you and said they have nothing to live for? What about you, are you struggling as a parent due to your child’s emotional needs or is it causing conflicts within your family or marriage? Children and families face so many stressors. I believe change and growth are possible. Your child can learn coping skills to help them advocate for what they need and manage their emotions. Families can return to a calm and peaceful state.

Coming to counseling is often not an easy decision to make, and I commend you for taking the first step and researching your options. In order for the process to be as beneficial as possible, it is important that you find someone that you can trust and open up to. Counseling often involves discussing tough topics and areas in your life that you are struggling with, so an empathetic and understanding counselor is important.

A cornerstone of my belief system is that behavior is an expression of what we need. And this is no more truer than for children. The difficulty lies, however, in parenting a child with behaviors we don't quite understand. It can be frightening that, as a parent or caregiver, we don't know what to do. And, it can feel isolating. What I want to share is that it doesn't have to be overwhelming. And, you don't have to do it alone. What I hold to be true is that therapy for children is absolutely a collaborative process where children, and the adults in their lives, learn and grow together.

Your family may be feeling like it is being turned upside down as your developing young adult struggles to find their place in the world. I work within the family system to re-establish the balance that is necessary for a healthy, growing family and find order within the chaos. Teens and young people may appear to be rebelling; fighting back against all of the families efforts to offer guidance and support. We can work together to turn this energy into a productivity and success in academic, social, and all other aspects of life.

Greetings! Welcome and thank you for considering me as your therapist. It is said that the reason two antelope walk side by side is to blow the dust from each other's eyes (African proverb). In today's world, it seems harder than ever to find clarity in the midst of chaos. Living with unaddressed chaos and unresolved pain can leave us feeling stuck and disconnected from those who love us and who may be able to help us. Sometimes, due to life circumstances, we struggle to find our way back to ourselves, our family and our God.

Appreciating and respecting that courage, my work is to help my clients attain their goals. We do this together as a team. Being stuck personally or professionally is poignantly uncomfortable.

In my practice I work with families and children who have experienced trauma and are having attachment difficulties. Many children I see have pre-verbal trauma from parental stress during pregnancy, adoption, neglect, or abuse. Some of the children I see are experiencing traumatic stress due to gender fluidity or gender dysphoria. Because trauma is the result of feeling helpless in a situation, many of the families I see have never thought of their child's behavior as a symptom of a life trauma. This shift in perspective is often the beginning of the healing process.

As the parent of a struggling teen, you often find yourself wondering what you can do to help them feel better. It seems like you've tried everything, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. Their personality has changed and sometimes you worry that it might get worse. You know they have so much potential - where did it go? It can be scary to reach out to a counselor because you want to make sure that you find someone who can really connect with your teen and also keeps you in the loop.

My approach is largely based on meeting individuals where they are in the moment, and not requiring them to feel, look, or act differently than they are. I believe in the innate worth of every person, and I love helping other people tap into their worth. I believe that all humans have the innate capacity to not only overcome difficult experiences, but to heal and thrive, and I know that when we overcome difficult experiences or emotions, we are stronger and more resilient. Lasting change requires work, but when we put in that work we harness the power to define our experience rather than letting our experience define us.
