Announcement icon All sessions are provided via HIPPA compliant platform. In person sessions require disclosure of any symptoms. I clean surfaces as used.
I work primarily with children, teens, and parents, although individual adults are welcome too! Parents are often dealing with children's behavior or emotional difficulties and the consequential stress it creates in the family home and dynamic... Teens struggle with anxiety/depression/ADHD, poor self-esteem/low confidence, have poor coping skills, managing life's stressors, experience self-injurious behaviors or suicidal thoughts... Children struggle with social skills often as a result of ADHD/autism spectrum disorders, managing stressful environments or social experiences...
For you to know that you need help for your family in some capacity AND to take that step to make an appointment... You're stressed. You, or your child, may feel isolated, misunderstood, out of control. I am here to help you improve your situation now and moving forward. I am genuine in my approach that makes client laugh & enjoy the therapeutic process.
I bring to my work a true understanding of people, and the struggles we experience knowing that no two similar struggles are ever the same. I've been described as positive, engaging, enthusiastic, trustworthy, and effective. My office is where we ... Stress Less!!

Stressin' Less Teen Style

This group addresses the needs today's teens experience with anxiety, depression, conflict management, self-esteem, and connecting meaningfully with one another. This group will use a mix of psycho-education (what causes feelings?), shared experiences, structured activities and games to support and learn from one another, and with one another. SIZE IS LIMITED and currently on-person pending COVID restrictions.
