Are you a teen or young adult feeling exhausted from emotions such as anger, anxiety, or depression? Are substance-related issues or behavioral needs complicating social or family relationships? Are the pressures during this young adult transitional period simply causing you to feel overwhelmed and uncertain of your next steps? Are you feeling stuck around school and feeling misunderstood by others in your life? I can vividly recall the very human “stuckness” I experienced during that period in my own life. In fact, it's what inspired me to become a therapist who specializes in supporting teens and young adults as I do today.

Change, stress, transition, relationship struggles, self-doubt, fear, anger, loneliness, loss...these are some of the issues I help my clients to navigate successfully. Maybe there is a problem you've tried to resolve on your own and you've reached an impasse. Or you have a teen whose behavior is worrisome, and you're not sure whether it's "just adolescence" or something of greater concern. With over 20 years of experience, dedication and compassion, I will work with you to uncover obstacles and find solutions.

You and your teen deserve to spend the upcoming years with genuine happiness, peace, and motivation.
Here we go again. Your teenager's mood is foul and you have no idea why. You've heard, "Oh wait until the teenage years," but didn't realize how tough this would be. There must be a way to help, but it seems like nothing gets them out of their funk. It's hard to watch your child seem so unmotivated, sad, anxious, and irritated. And heaven forbid you'd ask them to complete even the simplest of tasks, which results in a groan like you're telling them to build a house from the ground up. But the worst is when they blame you for it all. If you're giving your teen everything they could ever want, what do they have to be so sad about?

Do you ever feel like you “should” have everything sorted and things “should” be moving along as planned, but for some reason they are not? You have moments where you feel okay, even some days you feel good, but then even more moments where you feel overwhelmed, anxious and unsure about the future. Do you feel stuck, like you’re not in control of your own story? Are you ready to be more present, to find and cultivate greater levels of joy, peace and balance in a world that seems to be full of uncertainty. Together, I believe we can reach past our old habits and expand our ways of being and experiencing life with courage and grace.

You follow all the therapist IG accounts, you read the books, you journal and you have limitless insight into your difficulties, and yet your frustration and resentment haven't budged. Doing it all by yourself isn't getting results, because humans don't heal in isolation. So here you are, reaching out to another human being for support. And here I am, ready to reconnect you with your own power so that you move to the other side of the suffering.
