Life is a journey that occasionally can become difficult, and even painful. Our emotions can be overwhelming, disconnected, or confusing. Our relationships can become challenging and unfulfilling. We can discover we aren't the person we ultimately hope to be. I desire to help people make sense of their struggles and for them to know they aren't alone in the challenges and suffering life brings. Through sincere interest, deep listening, and a devoted presence, my hope is that therapy can be a place to make peace with the past, find renewed joy and richness in the present, and know hope and healing for the future to come.

By this point in your profile surfing, I'm guessing they're all starting to sound the same. I hope you find me a little different as a therapist. In fact, I've been told I'm not very "therapist-y." Sure, I've taken some classes, read some books, and gotten some degrees, but all of that only makes me an expert in what works for me. You are the boss of you. You are the expert in your life. My role, as I see it, is to help you explore options and potential solutions and find what works for you. That's the only way change will last.

You are strong and courageous to not only acknowledge that change is needed but to take the steps to achieve it. Change is hard, especially when you are uncertain of who to trust to walk with you through the process. I believe that everyone has the ability to make changes if only they are provided with a nurturing and empowering environment that fosters strengths, passions and builds hope for the future. You deserve to be heard, understood and acknowledged while expecting a therapist who is honest, genuine, comfortable sharing observations and insights and challenges exploration and growth. Humor is also imperative.

You have done the hardest part, showing up for yourself, and acknowledging that you are important. Therapy is not easy, and finding the space to connect and/ or reconnect to your self exploration and personal reflection is a gentle process. We as individuals shift all the time, and I believe in the ability to sit in discomfort, process emotions and experiences, while creating steps for growth, transition, and change. The ability to become more secure and confident in yourself, while learning your own personal patterns that may impact attachment, communication, and coping skills, and wanting to grow through each stage.

Helping clients on the path of self-exploration and personal growth takes time and understanding. Building a therapeutic alliance shapes the course for therapy and reveals a client's ultimate goals. I use various clinical approaches during therapy, depending on the needs and goals of each client on their journey toward wellness.

This foundation provides direction for therapeutic goals and allows creative collaboration between us to achieve them.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
