Announcement icon Therapy from the comfort of your own home make the first call.
My practice serves individuals who are struggling with various issues such as relationships, self-esteem, drugs and alcohol bullying, anger management, grief and loss and other mental health hurdles. I help clients who feel that their life is spiraling out of control, gain self discipline, and develop coping strategies, which ultimately leads them to inner peace. As a young teen, I know it must be difficult handling bullying whether it is online or in person. It is crucial providing a safe place to discuss sensitive matters and that is why we are conducting weekly groups for teens so that they know that they are not alone.
As a LPC, I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which helps clients look at negative cognitions, by replacing them with positive ones. I also like to use the Personal Centered Therapy, which is an empathetic approach that empowers and motives the client in the therapeutic process. I also offer online therapy if necessary.
As an empathetic and non-judgemental therapist, my clients feel supported and engaged in the topic at hand. One goal for therapy is a move towards self-sufficiency; clients leave my office inspired and ready to tackle everyday problems without feeling defeated or hopeless.

Teen Challenge

As a teenager, I understand that you must face a lot of peer pressures and perhaps even feel left out of the "click." It is okay to be different and being bullied is not acceptable to anyone. As a licensed therapist, I am providing a safe space to discuss situations that you don't feel comfortable talking about to other individuals. You are one of a kind, unique and appreciated! Let me help you find the strength to stand up for yourself without feeling judged.
