I love working with children and youth, especially teens and young adults.
Everyone has times in their lives when stress seems overwhelming, when ways that we use to cope just aren't working anymore, or are even making the situation worse. You might be sad, anxious, hurting yourself, isolating, or overeating and want to change. Counseling can help you to move forward at times when you feel stuck, can help you to develop new coping skills and tools to manage life's challenges, and rediscover the strength inside you. It provides an accepting, non-judgmental, confidential environment, and a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings with a caring, compassionate listener.

You recently discovered your child or teen may need counseling and are thinking, "Now what?!" It could be that your child is acting out and their teacher recommended counseling; maybe your teen told you they question if anyone cares about them; or you began fostering a child and know they need the extra support; or maybe it's the stresses of everyday life that are bogging you down and you need some sort of outlet. One of the hardest things about being in a time of despair is feeling alone, as if no one understands you, and then being so scared to take that first next step without knowing where to turn or what questions to ask.

Helping children and adolescents make sense of their feelings when faced with issues such as the loss of a loved one, high conflict divorce, abuse, or other stressful life events and tragedies is another passion of mine.
We all face stressful life events that prevent us from achieving what we want most in life. My passion as your counselor is to help you through these times. Working together with strengths you already have, the counseling process provides insights, information, strategies and techniques to move you toward achieving personal goals and change. Married now over 30 years, my passion is working with couples to create a secure emotional bond, intimacy and healing. Through a collaborative approach, I aim to foster emotional balance and a sense of competence as couples struggle with issues such as parenting, communication, and infidelity.

Therapy with a stranger can be intimidating and scary, especially for individuals starting for the first time. I aim to create an inviting space filled with warmth and comfort. A space a client can share their challenges and concerns without a fear of judgement. A space my clients can feel seen and heard through empathy and unconditional positive regard.

Childhood, adolescence, and adulthood are filled with so many different experiences, with everyone’s being unique. Some may come across smaller obstacles throughout their lifetime, whereas others may encounter obstacles that seem too big to overcome on their own. These obstacles that we encounter can come in many different forms, but it is when we cannot overcome them on our own that psychotherapy can equip us with skills to help.

Specializations include: trauma, abuse, family of origin issues, men's/women's/ children 's issues, addictions, control, anger, phase of life/transitional difficulties, marital/relationship struggles, behavioral issues, grief and loss, attention/concentration, physical and emotional instability.
Therapy is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Everyone has a past and carries some form of baggage with them. The issues from the past that remain unresolved impact multiple areas of our lives from our personal contentment to our interpersonal relationships. Once a client understands the underlying cause of their anxiety, depression, hurt, fears, etc., they can come to a place of acceptance and move forward minimizing the impact these issues have on the present. Our goal is to help each client find healing in order to live fully and authentically in the present.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
