Using personality traits of empathy, compassion, and commitment allow me to help you gain insight to have a better understanding of yourself. This, in turn, helps you to accept yourself for who you are while motivating you to create change. My approach goes beyond listening and understanding. I want to teach you skills that can help you manage and problem solve independently. Empowering you towards self-advocacy is my goal in therapy. "

"Life is a journey, and we sometimes lose our direction, get "stuck," and don't know where to turn. Feelings of hopelessness and shame often arise, and our coping skills fail us. Joy can fade from our lives, and some of us isolate as we question who we are and where we fit in. If we knew how to make positive changes, we would jump at the chance -- we can't just "snap out of it" as some might suggest. My approach to therapy and counseling builds on client strengths -- we all have them, and I can help you to identify them. Therapy opens doors to wellness allowing patients to not only 'get well' but also to explore life goals."

Do they seem anxious, sad, or even angry about how everything is just too much? Perhaps your child is overwhelmed by anxiety, panicking at school or at the prospect of too much homework, or overly concerned about what other people think of them?
