I treat adults with relationship issues that can include couple/marital concerns, coparenting concerns, individual issues with coworkers, friends, and family. I work well with clients experiencing anxiety and depression. I also treat adolescents individually, and with their parents, who are having difficulty with the adjustment to the teen years or young adulthood; have diagnosed depression or anxiety; relationship problems with friends, peers, or romantic partners. Ideally these clients are interested in receiving help and are motivated to make changes.

Everyday life is a challenge and situations occur that make it more difficult. Families can be problematic, growing-up is challenging for the adolescent and parents, relationships are difficult, grief is painful, jobs can be strenuous, financial worries weigh heavy, medical problems can wear us down and the list goes on. If life challenges have caused you to experience less pleasure, more sadness and anxiety, disturbed sleep, or behaviors that are not normal for you, it will help to seek an experienced counselor to talk to. You don't have to face problems alone. Make an appointment and let's get started on your healing journey.

I value that your experiences and concerns are unique to you and therefore, understand the importance of listening to your individual story. With an individualistic approach, I believe that we can work collaboratively for you to understand your situation with greater self-awareness and identify your own personal strengths which will empower you to cope with circumstances more effectively.

Sometimes life can become pretty overwhelming. Everyone at some point needs a helping hand in making sense of stressful events, finding ways to cope, and taking steps toward becoming the person he or she wants to be. When working with my clients, my goal is to be that helping hand. I tailor my approach to clients' strengths and needs, with the focus of assisting individuals in reaching their goals and becoming the best versions of themselves. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and families struggling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, life changes, grief, emotion regulation, or stress management.

Are you struggling with day to day stress, transitions in life, relationship issues, health concerns, or loss? Sometimes it's the weather, the time change, or the holidays that can throw things off. Whatever is going on, life can get overwhelming and an outside perspective can help. I strive to meet clients where they are and help them feel as comfortable as possible while we identify their personal goals, develop a plan specific for them, and work to bring peace and functionality back to their world.

Life is complicated and difficult. I believe that sooner or later we all are confronted with some aspect of living that is just too overwhelming to handle alone. Someone we love dies, or gets sick, money gets tight, relationships are strained, children have problems, and any number of symptoms start to emerge. At these times, we may be prone to despair and long for a deeper sense of satisfaction and desire more meaning for our lives. It is my hope that you will be courageous and ask for help now.

I specialize in working with pre-teens to young adults, however I have experience working with clients of all ages. I am also particularly interested in helping men, who often have a hard time reaching out for assistance. I begin my work with clients by first building a positive rapport and trust. I don’t believe therapy needs to be boring, and I enjoy bringing humor into the therapeutic environment. My clinical approach to therapy depends on the needs of the client. I have helped people with anxiety, anger expression, depression, trauma, educational challenges, sudden life changes, and grief.

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. Finding a teen therapist in Alton and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
