Are you "worrying" often? Do you feel uncomfortable in social settings? Feeling sad, frustrated/angry and having difficulty managing it? Are you a parent concerned about your child's behavior? Or in a relationship/marriage that is unfulfilling or not what it use to be? Is your family not accepting of your life choices? Counseling is a great opportunity to work through long standing concerns or just talk about what is going on in your life right now.

I have experience helping children and adults facing numerous emotional and behavioral challenges.
Is something keeping you from being your best? We all have great value and the ability to achieve great things. Sometimes, the burdens of this life, including past trouble, negative thinking/emotions, difficult circumstances, poor choices and lack of support can hold us back from reaching our potential. I believe my role as a counselor is to help others be more aware of their own strengths and abilities, so they can set and achieve positive goals. I believe in welcoming people with unconditional acceptance and support, and helping them work through difficulty to build and execute a plan to become the best version of themselves.

More Than Just Talk....... If you haven't been in psychotherapy before, you may not realize that the traditional approach to treatment is to educate the client about their conditions and teach them how to change their own feelings and behaviors. Although this approach can be very helpful, it is usually a long process that depends a great deal on the individual's courageous persistence. Moreover, a change in behavior and belief does not necessarily resolve the history of negative experiences fueling such things as depression and anxiety. These are some of the reasons I offer "More Than Just Talk".

I want to hear what is going well for you (or your child), so that we can build on what is already working.
Life is hard, especially when you feel like you just can’t manage everything on your plate. From school to work to relationships with friends and family, there is always a lot to juggle, and stress can build up quickly! When you’re overwhelmed, your behavior, mood, and relationships are all impacted, and it’s harder to be able to fully enjoy life.

My time in Special Education led me to my passion of working with children, adolescents, and their family's.
**Teletherapy secure video sessions available** Finding a therapist can be challenging. It may feel overwhelming to take the initial steps to begin counseling and search for someone who is the right fit for your unique personality. I emphasize the importance of a positive therapeutic relationship where collaboration assists you in getting you to where you want to be. Many people have asked me how I can do such a difficult job. I see my “job” as a gift. It is truly special when people allow me to be apart of their lives and can be vulnerable with me as we walk together in the healing process, whatever that may look like for them.
