I have been a practicing therapist for almost 30 years. Many have asked me how I do my job - "listening to people's problems all day". For me, it an honor and a privilege to help someone work through a troubling issue and find balance again in their life, providing support and compassion through the process. I work with individuals and couples; male and female; age 5 years and up. My practice is general and broad based. A few specialty areas are children and adolescents; parenting; anxiety; women's issues; depression; working through life changes; grief and loss; coping skills; geriatric issues.

Growing up in a poor neighborhood and being raised by a single mother has shaped my perspective on community mental health empowerment. Some people believe that poverty destroys individuals. However, I witnessed first-hand, how the lack of effective mental health treatment destroys a whole community. Frustrated with the deteriorated mental state of my community, I decided to DO something about it! Opening Evergreen Empowerment Group is my solution to this global community mental health crisis. Together we will explore mindfulness and commitment to value-based living through self exploration and healing.

There are times where our struggles and emotions can make us feel out of control and become difficult to manage on our own. We have so many experiences throughout our life that, at times, can be difficult to heal from. Navigating adulthood can be overwhelming and can often leave us feeling lost and uncertain. Our bodies and minds go through many seasons of life - accepting ourselves throughout that journey can be hard. I hope to help create a safe, nonjudgmental space to allow you to manage your emotions, develop a sense of purpose, and build upon your internal resiliency.

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.
