In addition, I have offered adolescents a safe place to be themselves, to talk about the true struggles of being a teen growing up in today's word while guiding their choices.
Hope gives you strength, encouragement, peace and the ability to press on and move forward. Without it we feel stuck, depressed and even hopeless. I can help foster positive growth in your life, help you see that change really is possible, and that there is always hope.

Sometimes life gets complicated. Confronting and discussing your feelings requires strength. In my experience, things that are never discussed are never resolved. The decision to ask for help with your concerns is a tremendous step forward. When choosing a counselor, look for someone you can easily sit across from. Then ask yourself, do you feel heard? I have listened to hundreds of stories. I respect each one as it reflects that person's journey through life. I feel privileged to play a part in that journey. I promise to do my best to help you find your way! Thank you.

You are a man in middle-age who has never been in therapy before, but you are beginning to be constantly anxious and depressed. Throughout life you have been proud of your ability to just “deal with it,” but now that has taken an emotional toll. Perhaps you are experiencing issues caring for an elderly parent or experiencing empty nest syndrome. Maybe you are finding it increasingly difficult to manage stressors in your job or having communication problems in your current relationship, all of which have suddenly made you feel overwhelmed.

People usually come to me wanting and needing change relatively quickly for their issues related to drugs and alcohol, eating, or as concerned family members. People often feel some shame, or a lot of it, around their problems. I have had success in orienting people to these problems and motivating them to find their way to hope, happiness, and a "recovered" life. Raising a person's true self-confidence is usually a part of the treatment. No two people are exactly alike so I adapt to the counseling needs of my clients. These are treatable issues, so seek help!

It can be overwhelming when you know something in your life needs to change, but you don't know exactly what it is, how to get started, or who can help you take action. Losing hope can happen when you are stuck in the repeating cycle of destructive actions, negative thoughts, or painful emotions that don't seem to show any signs of improvement.

Your relationship is falling apart. You and your partner seem like strangers and are no longer on the same page. You feel trapped, alone, empty and at the end of your rope. There’s barely any intimacy or affection, you’re constantly arguing, making you feel overwhelmed, like you can’t get anything right. It’s frustrating and nothing ever gets resolved. You don’t know how you got here. You’re constantly on edge, feeling depressed, anxious and burnt out. Perhaps you’ve just found out they’ve been cheating or maybe you’ve been separated for a while and you’re scared and unsure. Your marriage is in trouble and you need help now!

Times have changed and so has family dynamics. Life has really been challenging and even though Covid restrictions have been loosened you still may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed as you transition back to the social environment. Perhaps the issues you were having with your spouse or other family members were put on hold during the pandemic or have gotten worse. Maybe you are having difficulty deciding on a plan to return to the office. Whether it's due to marital or family issues, socialization, work/life balance, financial issues or just the transition process... whatever the reason, you are not feeling "normal"

Everyone who comes to therapy does so for their own unique reasons — perhaps stressors have become overwhelming, relationships difficult to manage, or symptoms too much to ignore. Therapy should be an authentic conversation aimed at understanding whatever it is in your life that you find challenging. I pair a warm and practical approach with psychodynamic technique to address both current issues and their roots.

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.
