Are you a parent of a child/teenager experiencing difficulties and you find yourself wondering what you can do to help them? It seems like you have tried everything and nothing seems to work or isn't long lasting. Early childhood-young adulthood can be difficult; their personalities change and you fear that they might not overcome their challenges. Not only do I work with teens and children, but also adults who are experiencing life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family issues. It can be nerve-racking to reach out to a counselor because you want to ensure you find someone who you can truly connect with.

Imagine if you didn't have to worry about your child/teenager because he or she had someone to seek help from. They would build confidence and you would feel better about their ability to face their challenges and provide support when needed. Additionally, as an adult what if you gained the skills needed to better manage the challenges you're facing?

In order to accommodate you and/or your child(ren), I offer evening appointments on Wednesday's and Friday's so you don't miss work and your child doesn't miss school. Together we'll create a plan to help get you and your family back on track.
