Imagine your child learning to manage big emotions instead of being overwhelmed.
**I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** Your family has experienced a major stressor-separation/divorce, loss or trauma that has impacted your lives. Life feels out of control and scary. Your young child is having difficulty sleeping, is worried and struggling in school. Your tween is sad and is acting out. Your teen is angry and doesn't seem to care about anything anymore. You're beginning to wonder if you have what it takes to help your family heal. It's getting hard to manage your emotions and provide comfort to your child /teen. You've tried it on your own...it's time to let someone help.

I serve adults, children , and families that are currently struggling emotionally or behaviorally. My professional focus is working with people that are affected by trauma, adoption issues, or struggling with attaching to those close to them. Because many of these issues happen within families, often family therapy is used to heal wounds. When you are struggling, it is often hard to see hope or the light at the end of the tunnel.

It is during those times that it can help to have someone come alongside us on our journey to highlight our strengths and help us build skills to conquer the challenges. I am passionate about working with older children , adolescents, and women who are dealing with adjustment, anxiety, attention-deficit, or depressive challenges, or who find themselves in various stages of self-discovery and life transitions. I also enjoy working with parents to strengthen family connections and with couples desiring to build or re-establish emotional connection.

I am able to provide treatment for children and adolescents with harmful sexual behaviors in the state of Indiana; I have had my CSAYC since 2016.
Life does not always go according to plan. It takes courage and strength to admit it is time to seek help when you or your loved one is in need of support. An investment in a therapeutic relationship can allow you and your family to find a healthier way of interacting with one another and the world around you. I have the privilege of working with individuals and families navigating challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflict, and sexually maladaptive behaviors. Hope is possible.

When families or their children experience a major life change, the collateral effects can be difficult to handle. Your child ’s ability to regulate and control their emotions is linked to how well they’re managing stress in their life. When adolescents are unable to manage the stress they’re experiencing, they have greater difficulty solving problems and often have challenging or confusing behavior. They may lose interest in things they love to do, become more verbally defiant, neglect academic or personal obligations, experience conflict with peers at school, lie, or behave inappropriate online.

Is your child having difficulty sitting still during class? Is she struggling academically? Or he is irritable and moody? Is your child a picky eater? As a parent, you may wonder, "Is this normal?" Life can be complex and challenging, and psychological testing can aid in providing clarity and better understanding your child . Testing can also assist in identifying barriers that are impeding your child 's optimal functioning. I will partner with your family to better understand the difficulties and then develop a clear, concise plan following testing to access resources and treatment services to best support your child 's needs.
