Are you or your child /teen more anxious, sad, or angry? Do they seem disconnected, spend more time alone, have trouble relating to peers, or have constant worries about life? Maybe you feel like you are walking on egg shells and unsure of how to respond to their behaviors. Perhaps, there has been a trauma that the whole family is still processing. There is more anxiety and stress and it is becoming overwhelming. You try and listen and offer support but you are out of ideas. You need someone who is objective, can relate to your child , and give them practical tools to help them through.

My passion is working with young people and their families concerned about the impact of substance use in their lives. I understand that many people have been harmed by one-size-fit-all treatment approaches, so self-empowerment is my focus and my approach is person- and family-centric. There are many paths to wellness. This means that you are in charge of your treatment goals. I understand that any change is difficult so I'll meet you where you're at in the change process to empower you to take the next steps.

Have you been through that cycle of gut-wrenching pain about who you are, harsh and persistent criticisms of yourself, then temporary ways to get relief that you end up hating? Are you feeling hopelessly broken and unsure if anything will ever work because you are permanently damaged? Sometimes it can seem like if so much has gone wrong, then it must be me. Finding someone to actually try to listen to what you have gone through can be extremely difficult and end up feeling the same as it’s felt before, not being heard or seen, and feeling alone.

Everyone can use an objective voice to help them work out what is going on in their lives. Sometimes relief can begin just by deciding that a little help won’t hurt. “Beneath every behavior there is a feeling. And beneath each feeling is a need. And when we meet that need rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the cause, not the symptom” (Ashleigh Warner). This is my philosophy for counseling. I have done work with children /adolescents and their families. Mental health concerns manifest differently in children /teens than they do in adults, and I know what to look for and how to help find the skills to help.
