I am continuously learning and have recently focused on expanding my expertise in working with transgender and gender nonconforming individuals.
I want to commend you for your bravery in taking the first step towards reaching out for help. Counseling can give you a non-judgmental place to vent as well as a place to learn about new ways to manage overwhelming feelings. As a therapist, my main way of understanding how people work is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It can help us challenge our negative thoughts and utilize healthy coping skills. I primarily take a humanistic approach with my clients and make sure to address psychosocial, biological, developmental, spiritual, and cultural issues as needed since every client is unique.

Are you worried for your child? Sometimes your child is stressed and they are showing you in acting out behaviors, anxiety or depression. While we specialize in youth, I also see individuals and families for counseling services designed to help discover new ways to approaching problems that currently hold you or your family back. For parents, this may look like learning ways to reduce stress and implement consequences that are effective at changing negative behaviors in children. For children and teens, this could include learning expression of feelings in words, art, or movement to build helpful ways of coping with tough emotions.

Have you ever felt “stuck” in your life and not sure how to move forward to make positive changes? I strongly believe that when we cannot make changes to our situation, we need to make changes to our thinking and perception, which requires exploration and support. When we can make changes to our situation, it can be risky and scary and best done with plenty of planning and validation. I am passionate about helping people make these “shifts” in perception and situation.
