I have been an educator and therapist for over a decade, and I have worked with children, teens, and adults in areas such as substance use * anxiety * depression * trauma * blended-families * divorce * grief * self & emotional regulation issues * social skills difficulties * and self-esteem issues.
I CAN DO THIS! These four words seem easy to say but can be difficult for many to believe. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my approach to counseling places you in the driver's seat of your life, giving you the tools necessary for success. Whether a child, teen or adult, we all need to feel capable and courageous. I believe the flaws in how we view ourselves and the world around us can be deconstructed through the evaluation and elimination of false thinking. As your advocate and ally, together WE CAN DO THIS!

Not accepting new clients
Imagine gaining insight into your own feelings and behaviors or those of your child and a greater understanding of what your or your child needs to thrive.
Do you often feel the need to withdraw from the world to recharge? Maybe you don't jump into new situations as readily as others. You've always felt a nagging sense that you or your child are different from the rest of the world. You worry constantly about being enough or not failing. You overthink and notice things far more than other people you know. You find yourself struggling to keep up with the pace of our busy world and wonder how others seem to do it so easily. You follow the rules, you perform well at work or school, but you still don't feel satisfied with yourself. Or maybe this describes your child and you want to help.
