In today's hectic society, families often struggle to manage responsibilities and maintain satisfying relationships. I work with couples, parents and adolescents on respectful interaction skills using effective communication, conflict resolution, and boundary-setting tools. Many of my clients are teens experiencing anxiety and depression and feeling overwhelmed by school pressures, demanding schedules and relationship issues. I coach young adults to identify and eliminate obstacles blocking their transition into adulthood. We explore values, self-esteem issues, personality traits, interests, and personal and career goals. I challenge my clients of all ages to examine and adjust thoughts and behaviors which are no longer working for them.

Marriage counseling: As a certified facilitator, I have access to the Prepare-Enrich inventory, which identifies relationship strength and growth areas. I offer feedback and resources to help couples manage conflict and enjoy more fulfilling relationships. In my 3-session premarital counseling program, I help couples clarify values and expectations to prepare for marriage.

I am certified in Child Sexual Abuse Treatment to help sexual abuse survivors process the trauma and loss they experienced from the abuse. I'm certified to present QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) suicide prevention training to groups. I facilitate corporate trainings on mental health topics (see West Chester Counseling's website for details).
