I consider it a high privilege to walk with individuals, children , teenagers, couples, and families in whatever they are facing - meeting people in their suffering is truly Sacred Ground.
I will help you identify what resources, strengths, and resiliency you already have - or can foster - to help you find the solutions you are looking for. I also value helping teenagers, and adults form a new relationship to their emotions in order to find ways to cope with extremes. When working with couples and families, I help individuals express themselves in a safe environment in order to find healing. If you are struggling with finding the light in the darkness, know that there is hope.

My areas of practice include adults, children /teens, and families.
Life presents all of us with situations in which we’d benefit from a little support or a new perspective. Sometimes, these take the form of serious events – such as bereavement or a traumatic incident. More often, they are “everyday” challenges like relationship struggles, child or parenting issues, or work frustrations; or maybe it’s difficult even to determine the reasons behind long-standing feelings of anxiety, anger, depression, or poor self-esteem. Whatever the circumstance, seeking an objective, professional, and confidential sounding board can help clarify thoughts or patterns and make goal achievement far more likely.

Kids and teenagers encounter new challenges every day. School, sports, activities, and family dynamics can lead to anxiety, stress, and even depression. They may feel overwhelmed and struggle to talk about what is going on. They may be scared, feel embarrassed, or feel unsure of who to talk about what they are feeling. You may have noticed changes in their behavior or mood as a result. I work with kids, teenagers, and families to identify and gain understanding of what has led to their struggles and collaboratively work on how to move forward. I bring a different energy to therapy.

This work is meaningful to me because I get to walk alongside people breaking free of painful patterns and moving towards feeling comfortable with life and themselves. As a counselor I have extensive experience in working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, chronic pain and addictions. I utilize mindfulness-based approaches to help clients cultivate mind-body awareness and create emotional well-being. Getting to underlying issues of shame, loss of control and grief changes lives. When therapy works, there's more than just insight; people feel it in their body as well as in their mind.

Throughout my life I have been interested in listening to others as they discuss their struggles and hardships. Helping others in this manner has always come naturally to me, and it is rewarding to be able to serve others in this capacity. I made the determination that I would pursue a career in counseling during my senior year of high school. Since I made that decision, I have done everything in my power to prepare myself to serve others utilizing several tools such as reflective listening, various modalities, and cultural competence.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
