Do you find yourself burdened with repetitive thoughts of “Why can’t I escape my past?” or you can’t seem to escape the guilt or shame associated with a past traumatic event? Do you find it nearly impossible to find peace? These very things rob us daily from experiencing joy, confidence, happiness, peace, and healthy relationships. Relationships are my passion, especially those concerning individuals suffering from issues related to communication, addiction, sexual abuse, loss of identity, intimacy, marriage/divorce, depression, and broken trust. Each individual, in my opinion, is unique and my approach is tailored case specific.

On the outside, it seems as if you have it all together. But inside, you are struggling with imposter syndrome. Your list of things to do continues to grow, but it seems as if there are never enough hours in the day. You know you should prioritize yourself and your health, but everything and everyone else’s needs seem to dominate your time, energy, and efforts. At the end of the day, you sometimes don’t recognize yourself in the mirror. Your best efforts don't seem to be enough and it’s impacting you and those you love. You want things to get better, but you don’t even know where to start.

You can’t control the challenging factors you are faced with in life but you can be empowered by how you perceive and respond. Difficulties, trials, struggles, pain, and grief are unavoidable even if you perceive to make the "right" choices. Life can be hard sometimes and unfair. Even the daily stressors of work, career, family, responsibilities, life transitions, difficult relationships, and lack of expectations being met can weigh you down. You live life through experiences, and experiences are understood through your perceptions. When you develop the tools to manage your perceptions, you can also manage those experiences.

"You are the Potter I am the clay. Mold me and make me, have Thine own way. Lord,I give my life, I give my all to You, To be a willing vessel, to use me through and through." These lyrics describe the reason why I have chosen to pursue my dream in private practice.How often do we find ourselves living a life of mediocrity? Knowing that we have one life to live wouldn't you want it to be dynamic & fullfilling? Life is too short to not be living at our best.

Initially, people may feel reluctant to seek out therapy to address their concerns. They may worry that it is a sign of weakness, and that they're the only ones dealing with issues. This is not true, the fact that you're seeking out therapy is a sign of strength and maturity. I am compassionate and laid back, which typically makes it easier for client's to engage in the therapeutic process. I strongly believe in establishing a collaborative relationship with my clients, so that we can discover your concerns, set goals, develop treatment plans, and empower you.

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.
