***STOP SCROLLING! This is the sign you’ve been looking for! Deciding that you need help is the hard part, & that’s now behind you. You CAN find yourself again or gain the support that you need for your teen , parent, or marriage. Being human can be HARD. We have thoughts & emotions that can have a grip on our well-being. Negative ideas not only put us in a bad mood, but can leave us feeling helpless & defeated. It can make small problems seem bigger & even create problems where none existed before. Some forms of trauma, loss or hurt will change us forever.

Now scheduling for student intern sessions! Supervised student interns are an affordable option for quality counseling. Throughout our lifespan, we will be faced with transitions. Children experiences changes within the family as well as school, friends, and daily routine. Then there’s puberty, which brings about a whole new set of changes in a teenager . Early adulthood is full of change, as well as a search for meaning and purpose. Marriage, divorce, birth of children, death of parents, middle age, retirement, and on and on! Sometimes we can move through these transitions smoothly; however, other times it doesn’t go quite as well.

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to figure out how to help your child? Are your child's behaviors concerning? Does it seem like communicating with your teen is nearly impossible? Parents always want what is best for their child, but often feel hopeless and lost when their child is struggling. Choosing a counselor that best fits your child's needs can be very overwhelming. My passion is to help children reach their full potential and provide hope and support to parents as we work together to get their child back on track.

I have experience in providing substance abuse counseling to adolescent and adult populations.
I have faith in the idea that people can, and do change. In my experience, change is not always a linear process. Often, when trying to change a situation or behavior, people fall short or stumble. Being able to truly evaluate an individual's strengths and building upon those, allows for the needed empowerment to overcome our barriers. I am passionate about helping individuals to overcome various behavioral health concerns. Whether you are facing addiction, anxiety, anger issues, grief, stress, depression or trauma, I use a strengths based approach, coupled with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to build upon your inherit resiliency to affect change.

Included are: anxiety and low self esteem, dysfunctional families, struggling marriages, parenting issues, children and adolescent concerns,eating disorders and disorderly eating.
It is often difficult to find someone who you can trust and who will really listen. Yet, we all need a safe place where we can tell our story and speak honestly. Sometimes life can become especially difficult. Having an objective, trained counselor can provide the tools and opportunity to open the door to peace and understanding. I believe passionately in the power of therapy to reshape lives and discover our innate capabilities. Often couseling will include disputing false beliefs like "I'm not good enough". Yes, you are. Come on in and I will prove it to you!

Let’s do real talk. Life can be hard! Understanding what children are experiencing can be difficult. Best of intentions by parents are often misunderstood. When you are a child, talking to your parents is seemingly impossible sometimes. Kids have big emotions they cannot understand or describe, and they think no one will get. Academic stressors, development, parent and peer relationships and significant or traumatic life events can cause a child or teenager to react in various ways. Some kids need a safe space to learn how to identify, express and cope with their feelings. Processing feelings helps to reduce stress and pressures.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Fort Myers and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
