Is your child experiencing challenging behaviors? Have you or a family member had a recent stressful event or transition? Having trouble with intense emotional responses or reactions? Has there been a trauma that is causing anxiety or upset in your family? Families can become overwhelmed by stage-of-life transitions, can be at a loss as to how to help their intensely emotional children, or address the special and behavioral needs of individual family members or children. I will help you assess and plan for these special needs and develop a family behavior plan that targets specific areas for positive change.

Having trouble with your teenager? Does your adolescent feel unmotivated, depressed, hopeless, anxious, or in need of greater self-confidence? Is your family experiencing a transition, loss, or other forms of trauma or uncertainty? Psychotherapy can help develop understanding, insight, and gain skills. As a licensed psychotherapist, I will support you and your child toward your goal of improving your well-being. Teens' needs are different from those of adults; they are still developing, and coping with the internal and external changes. I have nearly a decade of experience working with teens with severe emotional disturbance and their families.

Are you feeling distracted or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are lacking motivation and seeking clarity to connect with your passions and purpose in life, or desire more fulfilling, harmonious relationships. Maybe you’re tired of people saying you’re “too much” or “not enough” leaving you feeling not good enough or unworthy. You are not alone. Releasing old fears, anxiety, shame, guilt, and negative thoughts doesn’t have to be a painful, difficult process (deep breath!). It can be incredibly freeing, creating space and connection to a part of yourself you never knew was there.

Couples/Relationship Counseling. LGBTQ, Poly, & Kink friendly. Clients that like my style seek therapy mostly for anxiety or depression that comes from the feeling that life lacks purpose, feels stuck, or stale; especially during times of heartache, misunderstanding, break-ups, or even death. Many useful moments, crucial moments, can arise at the end of something - unresolved past hurts, spiritual dilemmas, a sudden urgency and passion for figuring out "why we're here" - understanding them and integrating them is what I offer. Closing the old stuff up well means new, exciting beginnings are possible...often in the same relationship!

Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we feel we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to depression, trauma, or relationship upheaval we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and power. Our ability to rediscover these buried treasures can be the key to healing, satisfaction, empowerment, self-trust and most of all--abundant choice.
