"I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults. As a former high school coach and counselor, I provide a unique approach that is both authentic and encouraging in nature. I work best with clients that are open-minded and adaptable as well as introspective and contemplative. Sense of humor plays an essential role in developing the rapport I have with my clients. Once that is established, I make sure to carefully listen to each individual's unique story, assist in planning ahead for challenges, channel strengths, and collaboratively track progress together."

"Is your daughter having trouble dealing with the changes of adolescence? Are you worried about your young adult child living on their own? Have you been putting off asking for help? During these growing years, teens and young adults find ways of dealing with painful emotions. Sometimes uncomfortable feelings can lead to unhealthy ways of coping. Therapy can be a safe place for you or your adolescent to explore patterns and get some perspective."

"Life is hard, no matter who you are. We are meant to be in a relationship but that doesn’t mean relationships are easy. So often we feel inadequate, insignificant, and powerless in our relationships. Be it a 2-day relationship, or a 20-year relationship, those feelings still persist. You are feeling stuck, and don’t really know what to do next. You’re feeling beat down because you’re not getting what you need or can’t seem to make your partner happy. You are feeling alone and don’t have anyone who you can talk to. You are starting to shut down at home to protect yourself from the pain, you're tired and it only seems to get worse. "
