So many middle school girls are struggling socially right now. What do you do if this was supposed to be "your year" to put yourself out there and make friends, and instead you're stuck at home in your room all day? It can be hard to stay in touch with people when you’re trying to talk over a bunch of other kids in an all-class Zoom call. This is especially true for girls who feel their interests don't always line up with other girls their age--how do you meet other like-minded people who are going to really "get" you?

Our relationships in our lives can be some of the most challenging and most rewarding experiences we have. When those relationships reach the challenging phase I believe it is important to strengthen these relationships. When working with individual clients I believe to combat things such as depression and anxiety we must focus on that individual’s experiences with others. When working with couples I believe helping the couple reach a common ground and to better understand each other’s point of view.

Life is hard, people are imperfect, and circumstances oftentimes just don't seem fair. Many of my clients describe having undergone a significant trauma or series of difficult events in their lives. This tends to create feelings of worthlessness and defectiveness, even despair. They may blame themselves and try to push down their thoughts, feelings, and memories and focus on other things. They may even try to reinvent (or perfect) themselves, but somehow end up reenacting their old struggles in a way that seems to be self-sabotaging. There is often chronic fearfulness as well as sadness and emptiness.

7 of 10 people will experience a significant trauma by adulthood. Trauma affects each of us in a different way. Sometimes those effects can be substantial and lasting. Leaving trauma untreated can shape the way we think, behave, relate, learn, love, and even parent. Recovering from trauma and/or finding balance in life or relationships is not always easy to do alone. Counseling is the perfect tool to help gain perspective in life's most difficult circumstances and challenges. Our clinicians are passionate about helping our family’s emotional functioning and maintaining healthy balances.
