Is your child struggling? Children, teens and their parents face unprecedented challenges in today's rapidly changing world. Anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, attention problems, school stress, difficult relationships, life transitions, chronic illness, grief, mental illness and other experiences compound the inherent challenges of growing up. You and your child may feel discouraged and alone braving these challenges yet experiencing challenges is universal and affirms our connection to each other. How different would life be if we instinctively embraced this truth and reached out for connection to grow through challenges together?

I believe there comes a time in everyone's life when we will feel lost, disconnected or hopeless. We sometimes lose our ability to deal with life's challenges. This inability to deal with life's challenges can be frightening, confusing and problematic. What is needed at such moments in our life is an attuned and trusted other. Someone who can believe in us when we can't believe in ourselves. It is in this kind of therapeutic relationship where old wounds are healed and we learn to trust, manage our emotions and reconnect to our wise and true self.

When my sister asked how I would describe myself as a counselor, I replied, "I am a professional human being". I was half-joking, but the statement was particularly self-aware. I feel that I am most authentic/effective when I am prioritizing the counselor/client relationship. I regard my clients with unconditional respect, giving him/her space to think/behave in a manner that is most congruent with their best self. For this purpose, I prefer to lead with the client's strengths of character. This sense of confidence is a source of momentum when confronting the external/internal challenges that are hindering their progress.

People tell me they are initially drawn to my warmth, authenticity, and positive nature, but what keeps them coming back are the results they attain. One of my abilities is to see peoples "best self", their potential, and to mirror it back to them in a way that supports them to take action. My goal is to create an inviting and non-judgemental environment in which to explore and actively pursue your emotional, personal, and professional growth. Providing a balance between support and challenge, we work collaboratively to identify patterns that are no longer useful and to develop strategies for change.
