I enjoy working with people in all stages of life. One of my favorite parts of this profession is having the opportunity of spending time with people of various ethnicities, cultures, and backgrounds. My husband is a Methodist minister, and that gives me a unique perspective into family life of the clergy. I walk beside my clients as they face transitions in life. That may be the student starting graduate school or the person facing life after a loss, or a child dealing with her parent’s divorce. Sometimes we find ourselves in places we could not have imagined and need someone to offer us a hand to help us move forward.

Being a child or teen in today’s world is tough, and so is parenting! Although the world is changing fast, the needs of children and teens remain the same as previous generations. Children and teens need to feel love, security, and value.

When working with children, I use age appropriate and expressive therapy techniques, and incorporate family work and a systems perspective.
The clients I work with are seeking to make positive changes in their lives. I work with people who range in age from six years old through adulthood, who are experiencing difficulty and stress. This stress can be in school, on the job, or in the family. By helping alleviate the sources of anxiety and stress, we can change how we feel, and then consequently, how we respond. Different times of our lives can lend to new changes. Even a positive change can bring on anxiety, or self-doubt. Counseling can increase your support circle to help improve your family and social relationships.
