Life can be challenging...when you add anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, lack of motivation, mood disorders, etc... to the mix, it can be even more challenging to cope. As a teenager, or young adult, you are most likely going through many changes and challenges which can be stressful, and complicated. I am here to provide a safe and comforting environment for you to share and explore your concerns. Working together, we can find ways to improve your quality of life, and cope with the challenges.
Some areas that I have experience with are Academic Concerns, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder,Mood Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, Career Counseling, Coping Skills, Communication Issues, Depression, Family Conflict, OCD, Relationship Distress, Parenting Skills, Self-Esteem Issues, Self-Harm, Spirituality/Religious Concerns, Suicidal Ideation, etc.
My counseling philosophy includes an integrative approach based on Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical-Behavioral Informed, Solution-Focused, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Trauma Informed and Creative/Expressive Theories. I work with pre-teens, teenagers, adults and couples.
