About

When did the light in your eyes disappear and the weight of these worries set in? You are sensitive, feel misunderstood and won’t open up to just anyone. You need someone to connect with you or your teen, who joins your world in a down-to-earth way, and supports you in regaining that spark of life again. I am a Geek Therapist who works with teens and adults who feel unseen, like they don't fit in, and don’t easily trust helping professionals and want something to be different in their lives.
I have a knack for connecting with youth who are shy or reserved, considered "defiant" or "oppositional," or have difficulty trusting people. It's all about connection for teens and adults alike, and I join people by connecting with interests like memes, anime, video games, geeky interests and music, and use those as metaphors and a vehicle towards change.
Making the first step when you or your teen is in this difficult place isn’t easy, but even now you are one step closer to where you want to be. All it takes is doing one thing different to start. Feel free to call or send me an email to schedule a free 20 minute consultation to see if I am the right fit. Also seeing adults via teletherapy.
