Our lived experiences often shape our meaning and understanding of our world and sometimes those experinces bring us internal and relational difficulties. Clouding us from knowing our own skills and confidence to lead our most fulfilling life with a sense of empowerment and authenticity. I believe neither our circumstances or experiences define who we are and when our stories no longer match our sense of self we can feel a multitude of emotions and unsure of where to turn for support. Developing a space to feel heard, seen and supported is where others can find the strength to re-create their lives.

I recognize the importance of creating a safe space and welcome the opportunity to get to know you. Together, we'll identify the problems in your life and find the right solutions.

Life can change in an instant. Unexpected life events and unforeseen circumstances can shake the very foundation of our lives and shatter our illusions of control. A multitude of unanticipated events can negatively impact our lives, destroy our sense of safety, impair our mental health, and complicate our interpersonal relationships. Many times families and friends struggle to provide the support and direction we need during the turbulent seasons of life. It takes strength and courage to reach out for help but the benefits of taking that risk can lead to new insight, personal growth, and a renewed sense of purpose.

Many times we are our own worst critic. Did you know that we have 60,000 thoughts a day, and most of them are negative and the majority of them are the same ones we had yesterday. Let me help you silence that critic in you, and teach you how to talk more nicely to yourself. It all starts with your thoughts, and once you change those, you change your entire life. Through personal experience and education, I have learned how to journey with others as they mange this thing we call "Life". I would consider it an honor to journey with you today!

We will draw on your strengths and choose the direction you want to take in resolving personal, career and relationship challenges. We all want to be loved and valued in our relationships, but struggle at times with communication, intimacy, self esteem, or conflict.

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.
