I work with Exult Healthcare. I specialize in teen /young adult depression, trauma, and relational issues. I know how it feels to be a teenager in this fast-paced, demanding, digital age we live in. These days people are so much more connected, but this means there are more eyes than ever on a person. That is stressful. There are expectations for school, family, friends, internet eyes, and partners. Unseen, unspoken issues of abuse, family conflict, and peer relations are so prevalent in this age. I specialize in helping adolescents and young adults to understand their world and manage the sometimes complex emotions that come up.

Accepting New Virtual and In-Person Clients! “Empathy fuels connection, sympathy fuels disconnection.” - Brene Brown. Empathy + connection equals the fuel you need to succeed. Empathy is a powerful tool that can be used to truly acknowledge and see others for who they are. Most of us have never truly experienced what it means to be heard, understood, and loved. Some of us would probably even say we haven’t always felt encouraged to embrace our true selves. Counseling should feel like a non-judgmental space that is therapeutic, life-giving, safe, & encourages you to grow. Self-awareness of your strengths, weaknesses, experiences,

Areas of expertise include play therapy, child/ teen counseling, family therapy and child-parent relationship training.
People often believe they have failed in some way if they or their child are in need of help. Conversely, it is your willingness to seek counseling, to do whatever is needed to help yourself, your child and your family that demonstrates the depth of your dedication and courageousness toward health. My hope is to provide you and your child an accepting environment, with a priority of safety, to facilitate your family members' ability to express themselves fully. Together, we will explore untapped resources, already possessed by you, to eliminate distress from your lives.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in McKinney and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
