If you are looking for a counselor for yourself, or for your child or adolescent, I would love to be a part of your team! I work with children, teens, individuals, and families facing a variety of challenges.
Making a significant change of any kind can be difficult. Are you are seeking a lifestyle change, working towards change for the well-being of your family, or hoping to see positive change take place for your child? Helping you and/or your child to feel empowered to make desired changes is something that I am passionate about. I believe that your counseling should be a collaborative process that promotes positive growth and new perspectives. Further, I strive to create a supportive environment for my clients and their families, engage clients though a variety of activities, and provide encouragement throughout therapy.

The focus of my practice is individual (young children, adolescents and adults) and family therapy. I genuinely love working with children, adolescents and families who are struggling with the tasks required to get through a day to those who have "tried everything" and feel lost. Or, individuals and families who are facing a crisis or transition and do not know how to navigate their way, much less help their children. I work together with my clients to identify barriers and the path forward so they can function effectively in their day to day and feel successful in what they do and how they engage.
