I also enjoy working with parents who struggle with parenting their challenging adolescent .
Does anxiety and depression interfere with your confidence, relationships, work performance, goals, and overall happiness? Have you endured a traumatic event? I believe a direct approach to therapy is essential in order to discover the source of such issues. I have a passion for counseling adolescents and adults through difficult times. I also believe our mental health is just as important as our physical health! My goal is to help you discover and learn a new belief system about yourself and to change assumptions that have been interfering with a healthy "you" for years.

The areas I most directly specialize in are trauma and healing, eating disorders, and other mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, and child/ adolescent behavioral challenges.
I believe I have been successful for almost 30 years in the field of mental health counseling because I approach each client I meet with curiosity. I respect each that client has an individual experience, their own life challenges and strengths. And each client has individual goals and vision for their life. Our life experiences, challenges and strengths shape each one of us and I believe it's important to approach each person at the most basic level of being curious about who they are. Only by listening to you and your experiences can I know how best partner with you to guide you in your life journey.

The counseling process can and should involve exploring goals and needs. It is ok to have an idea of how counseling can help, and it's okay to let me help you explore that topic. Not everyone knows what they want or why. And, sometimes, what we want and need changes. The ideal client is willing to show up and do some exploring.

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 Fort Wayne and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
