Connection and a place with zero judgement. That is what I want those I meet with to experience. Having a sense of connection and trust with your therapist is such a key ingredient when working through the difficult issues that led you to seek help in the first place. My goal is to create an environment where you feel accepted, supported, and safe to be yourself. I want you to open the door and feel greeted with compassion/ validation for all that you’re going through and where you feel your emotional needs are met.

My desire is to remind every struggling teen and child that in this ever busy world, God has prepared and called people who are willing to listen, walk alongside and help them overcome daily struggles.
I am an ordained minister of pastoral care and a certified temperament counselor working towards my Masters degree in clinical Christian counseling. I felt the Lord calling me into this field when I was 17 years old struggling with my own emotions. I didn't always feel understood by those around me which caused me to bottle up my emotions. My passion today is making children and teens feel heard and understood. My goal is to draw struggling teens and children closer to God while helping them discover who God created them to be.

My counseling approach is centered around being individualized to each person, their personal needs and goals.

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.
