In 2021, the CDC reported that 1 in 44 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. This number had been on the rise for years, and with it the demand for quality autism therapy services. Parents of children with autism are seeking services that will help their children thrive more through increased independence, communication, living skills, and improved advocacy. Early intervention can improve learning, communication and social skills, as well as underlying brain development, so parents need these services as soon as possible.

Peace, purpose, belonging, fulfillment, happiness - these qualities can feel elusive in the midst of the many challenges of life. Unexpected, painful events pepper our histories with emotional, unseen wounds, and patterns of behavior that we've used to survive can often lead to further distress. However, there is hope. It takes courage to seek help in the form of counseling, and that is a significant step in the journey of healing and personal growth. I want to encourage you for thinking of taking such a step today and let you know that through such steps, one at a time, the overwhelming mountains of life can be overcome.

On the outside, everyone thinks you've got it all together. You're good at putting on a smile and pushing through. You've been checking the boxes in life but still feel overwhelmed, tired and feel that you're running out of time. You're wondering if things should be this difficult? You've contemplated making some changes in your life, but are worried what others may say, or whether you'd be making a big mistake.

You have it all. The job, the partner, the family. People are impressed with how you juggle it all, but you don’t like how you show up in each arena of your life. You never feel like you are fully there, fully yourself. You feel like you’re just “doing” things to keep up the facade of being a nice person. But it feels fake and unfulfilling. You are proud of what you have, but you aren’t proud of who you are being. Your life looks perfect from the outside, but on the inside, it feels off.

I believe therapy should provide anyone the space they need to identify, process, and treat the problems they face in day to day life. We are all equipped with the tools we need to succeed and find wholeness - but sometimes even the strongest people need a little help working through challenges in life. Learning how to make choices that help you overcome difficult issues is my goal in counseling. As a former school counselor, I have experience working with children learn to deal with anxiety, anger management, depression, grief, and self-esteem. By providing a safe empathetic environment, we can build healthy coping skills.
