Therapy is about where you are and where you want to go. It is about acceptance of your values and the goals that you seek to reach. Therapy doesn't have to be a long painful journey. The idea that people need therapy puts a negative vibe on your experience to grow. Resolving conflicts, getting over issues of the past or solving current issues needs to be a positive quest to make things better in a way that is comfortable to you. I believe in short term therapy which has been successful with my Adult and Adolescent clients who experience depression, anxiety, trauma and many other disorders.

I am passionate about helping women, teen girls, and therapists to heal and rise above feelings of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and imposter syndrome. Many women experience a critical inner voice, relationship problems, and feelings of not being good enough. Stop beating yourself up and blaming yourself for things that aren't your fault. Learn to see the good in yourself and take back your power. You can do this! We will work together to free you from your past pain and suffering, connect you to your true inner self, find your voice, and transform old limiting beliefs into new empowering ways of thinking and being.

I am here to help. I am here if you need me. Is there anything I can do? These are phrases that we have all used. These are phrases we say to one another all the time. They are heartfelt and sincere. These statements are at the cornerstone of my purpose for becoming a counselor. The stresses of the modern world are often overwhelming. When stress from illness, school, career change, financial burdens or relationship change are added to our daily lives, we often feel overwhelmed and needing help.

Are you depressed? Are you anxious? Suffering a breakup, or job loss, family conflict? Everyone needs an ear to talk to sometimes, and it's so helpful to have a nonjudgmental person to vent to. So often, our lives are filled with communication issues, addiction or relationship problems and we don't know where to turn. Sometimes one's angst has been there since childhood, and many know they need help, but just need guidance on how to begin. Don't deny yourself the chance to be empowered!

I have long been an advocate for the balance of mind and body in order to live our best life. I am a true believer that emotional distress can cause physical pain and illness. I work with all ages and stages. My experience with critically ill and hospice clients has given me a passion to work with people who are grieving. Grief encompasses not only the loss of those we love but includes the loss of unfulfilled dreams and desires due to life difficulties. However, I also feel attuned to the individual who is simply reaching out to grow as an individual.

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.
