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.

I will help you with this on a personal level, and in the process of restoring health and relationships with whomever you are intending to build this restored relationship with.

If you are, I can tell you change is possible and I can help you with that change.

Like an athletic coach, I apply my considerable training, experience, and creativity to help you carve out the steps to get from where you are to where you want to be, providing you support, accountability, and structure along the way.

Connection with others who care is a central need for all human beings. This need is often most deeply felt during times of relational distress or personal struggle. My role as a therapist is to provide a safe place for you to feel cared for and understood when you need it most. Therapy provides a sacred space for healing and growth. It is within this space that I help clients process painful emotions and uncover patterns that keep them stuck in unhealthy relational dynamics. My passion is to help clients experience greater joy and fulfillment in their life and relationships.
I believe in creating an open, safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate therapeutic environment that is informed by structure to help you make the changes necessary to build the life that you want. I also believe in an equally kind and direct stylistic approach, coupled with a strong emphasis on collaboration. In our work together, I will provide you with scientifically studied tools to help move you in the direction you wish to go. That is why I practice mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing (MI), cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBT), eye-movement, desensitization, and reprocessing (EMDR).
Clients typically arrive with guilt, shame, grief, loss, depression, anxiety, PTSD symptoms, and a loss of identity. My goal is to free you from negative past experiences and gain empowerment to live your life freely.
