She's the child that would light up every room she walked into with her confidence, enthusiasm and joy. Now you don't how to even connect with her. Maybe she has become a perfectionist or high achiever and is extremely hard on herself. Have you noticed that she is isolating herself and her peer relationships are suffering? Maybe your daughter is sleeping too much or not at all. There was a time that she opened up to you and shared her struggles. She no longer seems happy and you just don't know how to help her. You want your daughter to feel self-assured, empowered and able to utilize coping skills to help her with difficult times.

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade? Is it really that easy? I would argue no, life throws things our way that we aren't always prepared for or have the skills to handle. As a counselor, my hope and drive is to help people who have been given lemons learn how to make lemonade. Learning how to handle anxiety, stress, depression and trauma can be overwhelming and exhausting. My goal is to be a warm supportive person so that you feel comfortable as we work through your life's stressors. I desire to create an environment that is welcoming and non-judgemental to both children and adults as we work through life's stressors.
