I believe anyone can benefit from counseling, whether it’s to sort through past experiences, deal with current struggles, or work towards future goals. Taking an integrative style to therapy, I am able to adjust my approach to the unique needs of each client.

I currently have limited evening and weekend availability! Everyone experiences life differently, but one thing that we all have in common is that we don't feel our best all of the time. I believe that each person has the ability to improve the way that they're feeling. I want to learn what your strengths are so that together we can find skills that will empower you, and help you to move closer to where you want to be.

."I belong, therefore I am." The sense of belonging has often been wounded, damaged or undeveloped. Initially in our family, later in school, with friends and at work. Through the process of exploration and self-searching, we can begin to let ourselves go. When we are kind, and less consumed by our own ego; the darkness of depression and anxiety have less of a hold and we can find freedom.

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.
