This means that how I help a teenager experiencing bullying, will be entirely different than how I help someone coping with addiction issues, or couples needing marriage counseling.
Hi. Thank you for taking a look at my counseling profile. I love counseling and have been practicing for 30 years. One of the things I've noticed new clients are concerned about is being able to express themselves without being judged, as well as if the experience will be awkward. In all my years of practicing, I've heard almost everything imaginable and judgment is not a part of how I work. Everything in my office is 100% confidential and safe. I know how to ask the right question and keep the conversation flowing.

If your teen needs support with their emotional or mental health, please contact me to schedule a free consultation.
It’s ok to need time to figure things out. That’s what life is all about. I love working with teens as they grow and become their own unique, independent selves. I have dedicated my career to work with adolescents both in my role in public education and in private practice as a social worker.

Adolescents experience profound physical and psychological changes. These transitions bring about a sense of uniqueness and independence. Managing emotions during this time of discovery can be difficult, but developing knowledge and life skills can help struggling teens acquire the abilities to navigate and enjoy the adolescent years. Looking at situations through a different lens and perspective can build empathy, awareness and understanding. As embedded in my business name, Power of Perspective, the ability to see different perspectives can be life-changing and liberating by building a sense of control over one's emotions.

Relating to today's teenager can be a difficult task.
Society Today is faced with multiple Life stressors ranging from Financial, Marital, Relational, issues with employment and or Life In General. Through Therapy, an Individualized Improvement Plan can be devised and implemented to assist individuals with coping and possibly overcoming the issues they are facing. Adolescents and Teens are complicated, and I am eager to assist. Teen groups are available as well as individualized treatment. Two people working together are always better than one. As a therapist I have learned the more input a client contributes to their therapeutic goals the better the outcomes and success possibility.

Are you feeling lonely, down, and/or anxious? Not sure what you are feeling? Do you have a child or a teen who is lost and needs help with bullying, trauma, self esteem, or aggression? Did you experience abuse or trauma, or need to share a challenge you are going through? Counseling or therapy is a safe environment in which one can feel heard and come together with a neutral person, and form a therapeutic alliance. I am very compassionate, non judgmental, empathic, and easy to talk to. Counseling is all about the therapeutic relationship and feeling you are an equal in this partnership.

Additionally, I recognize the importance of parental involvement in the treatment process and provide important tools for parent to use with their child in the home.

Are you or your child or teen struggling in life? Do you want to help, but don't know how? Many battle anxiety and depression. Some have to cope with behavior disorders, learning disorders, or autism spectrum disorders. Others have been identified as gifted, but struggle with perfectionism, "debilitating empathy," or social skills. Throughout my career, I've helped hundreds of kids, teens and adults learn the coping skills they need to succeed in life and be happy.Call or e-mail me today to start your, or your child's journey to self-awareness, self-management, and self esteem.

I believe in the power of human connection. To have someone, at the very least, be present as you move through challenging times can lessen almost any pain or worry experienced. Most people ultimately have the same goal to feel better, secure, and understood. I really enjoy working with people who are invested in their emotional and mental well-being, whether you're an adult, teen , family or couple.

Have you noticed your child or teen worrying a lot more lately? Have they been more down and withdrawn, losing interest in things they once loved? Seeing your child or teen struggle can leave you feeling helpless. Or maybe you have noticed these things in yourself or are a young adult struggling with life transitions and every day stress. Seeking help from a therapist may be the best choice to help begin to work towards meaningful change, create a better life balance, and facilitate inner peace.

Life is overwhelming. With so much going on, your mind is racing and there's too much to do at work and home. Kids may feel like they have too much going on between school, homework, and clubs. Emotions or anxiety may seem out of control. Your kids/teens may be having trouble with school and friends. You/your kid/ teen feel frustrated, overstimulated, or worried most days. You wish you could talk to friends or family but it just leaves you discouraged and mentally exhausted. You/your kids feel off balance, misunderstood, and like you are not enough. You're stressed and unsure what to do to solve your problems.

I enjoy working with clients who are ready to make positive life changes. We can't change what life hands us, but we can work to adjust to the hands we are given to make the most of situations. I have experience working with individuals with a wide variety of mental health needs ranging from anxiety and depression, to borderline personality and suicidal ideation. I believe individuals need to learn tools to help manage their life stressors successfully and learning those tools through counseling is the perfect way to build the ability to work through life’s challenges.

The decision to seek therapy involves more than a willingness to grow - It also requires the ability to develop a healthy therapeutic relationship built on trust, empathy, and unconditional acceptance. Creating a healthy and supportive relationship allows the client to discover more about themselves and creates an environment for change.

Life has been rough lately, that's an understatement, and your emotions are becoming more and more overwhelming and are affecting you more often and more intensely. You have become more agitated, easily flustered, and well, just more emotional than normal. You're having a difficult time managing your emotions for yourself, and you feel your relationships have been impacted. Or, possibly, you're already in a relationship and you continue to cycle through the same fights, and can not see a way off the carousel. Your feelings are valid, you are not "crazy", and there is hope for you and/or your relationship.

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. Finding a teen therapist in Saint Charles and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
