Are you a student athlete who desires to do well on & off the field? You can likely relate to this unique student athlete challenge: You’re a student of the game AND you’re a full-time academic student. You're putting in the work on the field and in the classroom. Adding to this, you're facing the unexpected challenges of 2020. It can be unsettling. Everything seems a little up in the air. Season postponed, COVID testing, not getting the playing time you expected, adjusting to new teammates/coaching styles or generally feeling stuck in your head. You may be facing some challenges, but you've got grit. You're a goal getter.

As we go through life it can become very challenging, overwhelming, and even scary. Sometimes we need emotional support to get us through the mishaps and worries of life. There is hope for our issues and problems we face. Working together we can bring about a connection of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior and help you understand your ability to bring peace and joy to your life. Sometimes change is hard but it takes strength and determination from you to make those changes. It takes courage to want to change and ask for help.

I enjoy helping children, teens and adults. My specialties are anxiety, OCD, and autism spectrum. Children/teen issues include anxiety, perfectionism, social and coping skills, giftedness, self-esteem and behavior issues. With children's counseling, parents are kept informed in a number of ways such as being included in some sessions, talking briefly after or scheduling separate sessions to discuss progress, concerns, and things you can do at home to support your child's therapy. Oasis has a fully equipped play therapy room to support best practices for therapy with children. Teens (and many adults) also appreciate the sandtray.

The active support, care, and skills available through a counseling relationship can be the most effective tools we use to battle against life's adversities. I value the courage and vulnerability it takes to enter into a counseling relationship. As someone who has experienced 'bad' counseling, I place high value on the individuality of each client and view them as the expert of their experience.

Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices.

Being a parent is a joy like none other. This may however become challenging if your child (especially a teenager) battles emotional, behavioral, eating disorders, lack of confidence or addiction problems. Teenagers with these issues often argue, have hard time expressing emotions, have disruptive behavior, sudden change in eating habits and conscious of their body image. They might resort to use of alcohol or other drugs to escape struggles. This does not mean you are a bad parent; it is just a difficult time for your family. You just need someone to walk you through during this difficult time.
