My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that you know yourself best. In therapy, I am not the expert on your life; you are. I will serve as a guide as you work through the messy, raw, and unfiltered areas of your life. Together, we will discuss and implement strategies to make your burdens feel lighter. My wild hope for you is that you go forward with the skills and confidence to thrive. I am also trained in EMDR. This is a modality that provides people the opportunity to heal from challenging and traumatic experiences.

I am a second-generation Christian family therapist who has been in practice since 1987, married for 34 years, 2 adult twin daughters, and now 2 sons (both daughters married). My overall philosophy is to assist clients in bringing balance to their lives by examining the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of their lives. It is important to see the individual as a part of a system, as what may work for one person may not work for another due to current family dynamics and unresolved issues from their past.

Life is beautiful even through all its struggles and disappointments. I believe the connections we make with others give us purpose and drive to fulfill our dreams. Though sometimes our intentions do not manifest and we become stagnant and distressed. In my therapy I like to focus on what we can control...ourselves. To take a look inward and view our most delicate fears, insecurities, and desires can be a lot of hard work. I approach each client with this recognition and strive to make a true connection to help foster self-improvement and life satisfaction.

I am a home based therapist. I believe all children deserve a loving family that knows how to best parent them. While I do not have an "ideal client" per se, I do believe no child should be taken off alone to develop an attachment to me, the therapist. Children should attach and bond to their parents so therapy with foster and adopted children is most effective within the family. When working with older youth in foster care, individual therapy may be warranted, but I would prefer to work with the family whenever that is a viable option.

I would be honored to work with you and your teen .
Are you feeling worried, frustrated, or overwhelmed by the roller coaster ride that comes with parenting a teenager ? Have you spent many sleepless nights worried about your teen ’s mood swings, acting out, grades, or who they are hanging out with? Maybe you feel helpless because you’ve tried everything to help your teen and nothing seems to be working. As a parent of six kids ranging in ages from 19-29, I know those feelings, those worries all too well. Parenting is hard work; teenagers don’t come with a manual. Many of us feel like we are doing it all wrong or that the problems our teen 's experience reflect our parenting skills.

Being a parent is a joy like none other. This may however become challenging if your child (especially a teenager ) battles emotional, behavioral, eating disorders, lack of confidence or addiction problems. Teenagers with these issues often argue, have hard time expressing emotions, have disruptive behavior, sudden change in eating habits and conscious of their body image. They might resort to use of alcohol or other drugs to escape struggles. This does not mean you are a bad parent; it is just a difficult time for your family. You just need someone to walk you through during this difficult time.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
