Welcome! My practice is open during early EVENING hours to accommodate all schedules. I have been fortunate to have 16 years of counseling experience in both the school setting and the private sector. I have had the pleasure of working with clients ranging in ages 4-18, adults, and with families. While working with children and adolescents, I believe that the family dynamic is an extremely important part of the therapeutic process, and will often involve parents and siblings in therapy when it is helpful. One of my specialties is working with parents to help with parenting struggles-- from the very young ages to teen years.

The stress that people face comes from all sides. Therapy is a road to healing and health when stress and anxiety become a burden. If you are a woman overwhelmed by the demands of life, and feeling like you are never enough for anyone, counseling will provide you with the necessary support to be more present and confident in your daily life. If you are are a teen feeling disconnected from your parents, your friends, and yourself, counseling will give you tools to understand yourself and connect with those most important to you. If your child has unique needs or challenging behaviors, parenting counseling will help.

Your desire is to have your child be back to their best self. You've tried everything you can think of in your parenting arsenal; long talks, together time, consequences and for some reason the issue is still there. As parents we don't always have all the answers and it is ok to reach out for help!

Sometimes the families that look perfect on the outside struggle behind closed doors. Moms are grappling to make picture-perfect Pinterest parties for kids who barely speak to them, make sure her parents can still live independently, connect to husbands who are trying to succeed amid the stresses of work, all while surpassing expectations at the office. It's hard to explain to your teenager why they should have to work for their trip to Europe because it builds "character", in a Kardashian society.

As a parent, there's nothing worse than watching your child struggle. Standing by and watching their grades fall and their anxiety rise is excruciating, but nothing you've tried is making the situation better. Your child doesn't seem to know what's due or when, they are unorganized, have no plan for studying, lack effective study habits and skills, and have trouble disengaging from their phones. Communication is breaking down between you and your child and they seem unmotivated and apathetic toward school. You may also be questioning if your child is just being a typical moody teenager or if it's more serious. Are they depressed?

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.
