I believe in the healing benefits of the human/animal bond. I specialize in nature and animal-assisted therapy and equine-assisted therapy. I believe in working "outside of the box," of the traditional office-based setting by providing an alternative, experiential approach to child/ adolescent counseling. Clients partner with their animal companions while interacting in nature's great outdoors. I have expertise in working with children with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, behavioral concerns, LGBTQ+, issues of divorce, and blended families.

Welcome! I have worked in the behavioral health field for over a decade within home, community and school based settings. I provide a comfortable space for adults to express their thoughts and feelings. Additionally, I love working with children and adolescents using creative approaches to facilitate the therapy process like arts and crafts, and games. Therapy can help children learn to cope with life challenges, and teach children how to express themselves in a positive way. For adolescents, therapy can be a safe place to discuss concerns and develop plans for positive growth.

To seek therapy takes courage and curiosity. The process of therapy gives us the opportunity to explore the impact of the multiple systems with which we are connected- family, work, home, friends, community- in the context of an affirming relationship with the therapist. Through this process, we come to better understand how we have interacted with these systems over time, the strategies we have developed to navigate them successfully, and how these systems have impacted us, contributing to both opportunities and challenges.

I help people discover who they truly are by assisting them to balance emotional, mental and physical health which will lead to harmony in their lives. When we experience this harmony it brings happiness, success and joy. Often we encounter the same issues and problems in relationships with family members, at work, school, and in the community. Our limitations are expressed through our interactions with others. If our mind is preoccupied by memories, we are stuck in a loop and can lose self esteem, motivation and confidence. There are answers. The ability to change behavior and make better choices is always present to us.

These belief systems can impact our mental well-being, and lead to feelings of shame, emptiness, hopelessness, addiction, as well as nervous system dysregulation. I empower those I work with to step into healing by building resilience to shame, strengthening and regulating the nervous system, and creating a space for authenticity.

I have successfully worked with adults and children, couples and families, with both common and complex needs. My approach focuses on experiential awareness and processing, while working through present day thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is holistic in that it views symptoms as attempts at coping.We work together establishing a calm place within you, through the enhancement of personal awareness, resources, and developing coping strategies; we then progress beyond coping skills, moving through the roots of old learning so that your change is lasting, and from the inside out.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
