I have experience leading child and adolescent groups, adult groups, parent workshops, staff trainings, inpatient and outpatient hospital groups, and Steven -Ministries workshops.
Life is filled with sorrow and joy, frustration and wonder, stagnation and growth, obstacles and openings. At times, our skill set and resources are not optimal for helping us adapt to the shifts and movement in our lives. I believe that art therapy and counseling can support understanding of our skills and resources that better equip us to adapt to life's changes. Art therapy allows opportunities to imagine the best, healthiest version of ourselves and permit clarifying moments where we perceive possibility and potential. My goal is to support clients in becoming active agents in developing positive, purposeful ideas towards wellness and good health.

I specialize in relationship issues, stress reduction, anxiety, depression, women's concerns and adolescent struggles.
Is the stress of work or school overwhelming you? Are your relationships difficult? Are you struggling with feelings of shame or vulnerability? Do you feel unsatisfied? Everyone experiences life differently. My training and experience as a counselor has led me to a deep understanding of how we live in our worlds: with our families, within our relationships, and even how we perceive ourselves. My approach to counseling is based on helping others find the solutions that lie within themselves. Evening and weekend appointments are available.

You are overwhelmed. You struggle to relax, calm down, or feel satisfied with your life. You get pulled into your emotions and it's getting worse. You feel stuck and trapped, and then you feel guilty for feeling that way. It's not something that you talk about. In fact, most people would be shocked to know this about you. Imagine what it might be like to feel calm and to respond from a confident place instead of reacting all the time; to be more effective; to know what to do when you’re feeling overwhelmed so that you don’t get swept away. You know that you want to get there, but you need the right help to find the way.

I believe it is important to help clients reflect on their experiences and the root cause of their problems, all while identifying coping mechanisms so the clients can ultimately experience life at their best mental and emotional state. I use evidence-based strategies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Theory (DBT). I primarily work with children, adolescents, and young adults with a special focus in trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, emotional regulation, life transitions, peer management, and stress management.

Clients come to therapy wanting to make change in their lives and as challenging as it can be, clients who do well with me engage in fearless personal exploration using curiosity to drive their progress towards their preferred future. Clients who are interested in a holistic approach to mental health including sleep and nutrition and an openness to multiple viewpoints of healing and health will be engaged with my style. I also believe that clients don't want to be in therapy forever, nor should they be, so I aim to provide clients with firm internal processes and awareness they can use throughout the lifespan.

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.
