About

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or confused? Are changes or struggles within your family causing you stress? Do you need help navigating a new challenge in your life? Does your child or teen need some help and guidance? Life's journey can be difficult at times and we may need the support of someone to assist us in seeing things from another perspective and finding ways to problem solve. I can help you move forward and provide you with strategies to do so. I commend you for taking this first step to getting the support you need and deserve at this time in your life.
I especially enjoy coaching and supporting parents through the challenges of parenting teens. My therapeutic approaches are goal oriented and solution focused, emphasizing the client's and family's strengths.
I offer a warm, respectful and genuine therapeutic style. I feel that establishing a trusting relationship is one of the most important factors in having a successful client/counselor relationship. My overall goal is to support and encourage my clients as we work together to overcome their particular challenges.
