I work with individuals from adolescent to adult, utilizing a broad range of cognitive therapies.
Are you looking for someone to help you make sense of the changes and challenges life brings? I believe every individual holds the key to the solution that is right for them. Empowering individuals to let go of self-criticism, create realistic expectations, and remove the barriers that are keeping them stuck is a process I believe in.

I don't feel like myself. I don’t want to get out of bed or do anything. My teen doesn’t come out of his/her room. My teenager doesn’t seem like him/herself. Any of these sound like you or a loved one? What about, I/(insert loved one) keeps getting worked up over the smallest things or seems to be struggling? Whether you or your loved one know the agenda you want to work on or just need a place to talk freely and figure out how to stop saying these things, I am here to help you. I don’t mind working with anyone age 8 and up but I love the challenge teenagers and young adults bring and helping them see their future differently.

One of the most difficult things we can experience is in not knowing what comes next. Maybe you feel lost, confused, or broken - that some part of you is missing, and the daily struggle to keep it together for yourself or your loved ones feels impossibly overwhelming. Maintaining the obligations of family, work, and friendships can be so exhausting that it seems easier to avoid them altogether. Maybe you’ve considered therapy before, but thought it was too expensive, time consuming, or worry you might be seen as "weak." But how would it feel to find yourself again? To stop, catch your breath, and learn to find peace among the chaos?

Not only do I understand the challenge in picking up the phone to make that first phone call for help, I understand and am mindful of the challenges of following through with this, every step of the way. I see my role as a therapist as helping each of my clients to move toward their best life. I work collaboratively with my clients to figure out what that means for them, and am mindful that my job as a therapist is to work myself out of a job.

Sometimes therapists are called the "wounded healers" because from their own life experiences they have decided to help people. I am proud to be one of those therapists. I have had a wealth of life experiences and losses and can truly empathize with my clients. I have experience in many areas of Social Work; including housing homeless people, coordinating adoptions, and advocating for pre-adjudicated youth. As a Clinical Therapist, I have worked in Home Based Therapy, Community, Residential, and Addiction. I firmly believe that these varied populations and organizations have enriched my integrative approach to therapy.

“One of the greatest things you can do to help others is not just share and give what you have, but to help them discover what they have within themselves.” The life we desire is not always the life in front of us. Emotions can be difficult to understand and navigate through life’s seasons. It is essential to have access to a nonjudgmental, compassionate, and therapeutic environment for people to move through life’s ups and downs safely and process anything from everyday stressors to the most traumatic events.

We are complex individuals molded and sometimes broken by our unique life experiences. These experiences provide the subjective lens through which we perceive reality, and can negatively influence our thoughts and behaviors. This can sometimes happen outside of our awareness. For instance, we often create hidden internal conflicts which can cause daily distress in our lives. However, we can also be very aware of negative thoughts and behaviors which create havoc in our lives. By allowing me to step into your story and your life experiences, we can work towards the goal of improving your overall well-being and happiness.

Life can be overwhelming sometimes, but you don’t have to navigate your healing journey alone! While making yourself vulnerable may seem scary, it is also one of the strongest indicators of courage. When faced with overwhelming emotions, it can feel comfortable to avoid those feelings; however, comfort and courage cannot exist at the same time.

Most, if not all, of the individuals I serve share similar diagnoses and/or problems, but each of them possess a unique journey that lead them to this point in life and an especially unique story yet to tell. I collaborate with clients using both humanistic and existential approaches empowering them to develop self-awareness and understanding to actualize in a healthy direction while also taking responsibility and exercising choice to live a meaningful life.

Life isn’t easy and sometimes we need a safe space to process difficult emotions, heal and find ways to move forward. Sometimes we need additional tools to resolve couple conflicts or deepen the couple connection. And then there are times we are grieving the loss of a loved one, a friend, or a dream and we need to talk and cry it out and heal. And then there are times we meet “the one” and want to build a relationship that lasts through life’s transitions. And sometimes we’re just anxious and our worry thoughts disrupt our thinking and daily living and we need to free ourselves of it or learn better coping skills to manage it.

The therapeutic process is about you!! We all have a story, and a past! It is imperative that you feel comfortable and safe for a clinician to earn your trust, to engage and assist you on your journey of interpersonal change. I recognize the significant role you play in developing your tailored treatment plan and how vulnerable you must feel asking for help. If you are uncertain what you need, want, desire or struggling where your life's path is taking you, know the power is within you to make rational positive changes and choices for your life with the assistance of a trained clinician.

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.
