Anxious? Overwhelmed? Exhausted? This might describe yourself, your teen , or your child. Counseling might feel like one more thing you don't have time for. But if you don't take care of you, everything around you suffers. It may seem impossible to find a balance between work and family, or school and friends. Therapy doesn't have to be out of reach, impossible to schedule, or feel like you're talking in circles.

Creating successful relationships and lives as an adolescent , adult or couple is one of the central challenges we all face. I am a Gestalt based psychotherapist who works to help clients discover their potential and explore the blocks that may be getting in their way. My work starts with the premise that each of us has within us what we need to live grounded and fulfilling lives. My goal with clients is to help them build awareness to what is occurring in the moment as a springboard for potential change. Through process oriented therapy, I believe we all can get through challenges that emerge in life.

Is your child or teen acting more depressed, isolated, anxious or angry? Are you worried about their grades or motivation levels? Has their communication with you slowed or shut down entirely? Do they need someone to talk with to help them open up? Are you exhausted as a parent/caregiver and just need some emotional support for yourself, or with parenting tips? Being a parent/caregiver is one of the most challenging (and potentially rewarding) jobs you will ever do, but it does 'take a village' sometimes, and I'm here to help with 20+ years of experience working with children and families from a wide variety of backgrounds.

I can help you to make sense of your relationships with your partner, teen , or child so that you can authentically give in the relationship AND ask for what you need.
You want help and you don't know where to start. You feel afraid, angry, overwhelmed, lost, and, depressed most of the time. Maybe your marriage is unfilling, your teenagers and kids drive you crazy, or you can't even name what it is that feels so awful. You don't know how to show up, or how to fix things, and you are tired. The isolation, anxiety, and complications that we are dealing with in 2020 bring up many issues yet, the idea of contacting a therapist might be terrifying. I understand that it can be hard to seek help, but it might change your life.

Parenting, especially during this pandemic, can be exhausting, frustrating, and extremely difficult. Sometimes it feels like a thankless job that you cannot quit. Having a child who does not listen to you, screams for hours or acts up at school can be embarrassing and disappointing. Seeing your loving child change into a moody teen who stays in their room and refuses to interact with you can feel like you are living with a stranger.

Adolescent , individual and family counseling are my areas of practice.
I view counseling as a partnership between an individual or family and their therapist. When the theraputic relationship is strong I believe much can be accomplished. I work with individuals, adolescents and families as a partner in the process of wholeness. I believe that counseling can assist in the development of an understanding of yourself, your family and enhancing important relationships in your life.

Areas of interest/expertise: lawyers and law students, women’s issues, eating disorders, grief/bereavement, pediatric, adolescent and college mental health, relationship and interpersonal concerns, and couples work.
My theoretical orientation is eclectic and integrative incorporating interpersonal process therapy (IPT) (here and now), psychodynamic, relational and CBT models. I approach therapy from a strengths based approach, focusing on client’s inherent strengths and resiliencies rather than their weaknesses. I also utilize CBT to focus on changing negative core beliefs and cognitive distortions and DBT to teach distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal assertiveness skills. Lastly, I am very relational in my approach in order to provide clients with a corrective emotional experience and holding environment for them to feel safe, secure, empowered and validated.

Is what I am doing, helping or harming me? Am I focusing on things that I can change, while working to accept things outside of my control? Do I ... or do we... need some additional support in navigating current stress? These themes and questions of resilience are often part of our entering therapy. If you, your adolescent /young adult, or your family is seeking support, with the goal of integrating new ways of making sense of yourself/yourselves and each other, I am happy to create a safe and non-judgemental space that provides this opportunity.

I specialize in play therapy with children, adolescent issues, parenting, family/couple relationships, problems with anxiety and/or depression, managing mental illness, grief/loss, decision making, coping with life changes, spiritual issues and resiliency.
Let's be honest- we all struggle. Sharing openly and honestly about our struggles is powerful. Life's difficulties take many forms but often our tendency is to go it alone, to hide it, to wait for it to go away. Counseling is seizing an opportunity to move towards greater fulfillment, whether that is for an important relationship, helping your child/family, resolving problems from the past that replay themselves in your today or coping with difficult life circumstances and illnesses. Counseling is a worthwhile investment in a valuable you; life is too short to do otherwise.

My approach is holistic, open, honest, and direct. Clients will be welcomed with an empathetic and respectful environment where you will receive support and encouragement..

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 Columbus and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
