I am an experienced child therapist and my goal is to understand why a child or teen is struggling and to help children/adolescents and their caregivers develop skills so they feel more empowered in the areas where they struggle. Caregivers are a vital part of my work with children and I actively involve families in therapy to improve communication and meet goals for improvement. I view therapy as an experiment and I work collaboratively with my clients to achieve progress.

***I currently have a waitlist for new patients*** I believe that therapy is a journey to build a better you. Whether that is moving through trauma, exploring and conquering anxiety, learning sports psychology tactics, raising your child (and dealing with the wonderful adolescent drama), fighting addiction, or strengthening your marriage, we're in this together. If you enter my therapy office, you are here to grow. While therapy is a process, it does not have to be a long, drawn out, difficult and treacherous.

Being a teenager can be tough. Being a parent of a teenager can be even more so. Because this is such an intense developmental period, when you realize you need some outside help, finding the right person can be tricky. Over the past sixteen years, I have connected with teens, young adults and their parents to help them find their way to stronger relationships and a solid sense of self. I help teens and young adults with addiction, eating disorders, anxiety and depression, communication and life skills, family relationships, trauma, social media anxiety/isolation, and more.

Some issues have included depression, trauma and loss, pornography and marital difficulties as well as adolescent behavior concerns.
One of the most important things we need in our own lives is balance. This is often difficult to achieve with life's constant demands on our time and energy. Without balance, life becomes wearisome and at times, unmanageable. We begin to wonder if there is meaning in our lives or even if it's "worth the trouble." In the effort to find relief or comfort, we may find ourselves drawn to self-defeating and even destructive behaviors that offer immediate yet temporary relief. There are other options, a different perspective may help. I offer just this to my clients.

I work with clients 13 years of age and older with mental differences including: ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD , Adjustment Disorders, Military Life, Teen Issues, and Trauma.
Online Telehealth Therapy... I enjoy various approaches to mental health and self-care. I enjoy many pints of ice-cream, bath bombs, a good book, spending time outside, and working out. Most importantly I believe we owe it ourselves, to make sure we are being taken care of and nourished, too, through our own mental health care. My approach to treatment is tailored to fit each person’s specific goals and needs, and I provide a comfortable and safe space for people to express themselves and work through their therapeutic experience.

Are you struggling with feeling sad, overwhelmed, or withdrawn? Do you worry, stress about little things, or unable to manage your feelings or get enough sleep? Maybe you get angry easily, have trouble at work or school? Life is hard. You don't need to struggle with these feelings. We can help! Depression and anxiety are byproducts of trauma, all of which can affect you by impeding close personal relationships, preventing you from taking healthy risks, and keeping you from sleeping. We can help you process trauma to get freedom from anxiety, panic, stress, as well as relationship and communication problems and depression.

We are always in a perpetual state of being created and creating ourselves." ~ Daniel J. Siegel There are many who have come to believe feeling numb and disconnected, while incredibly lonely, is normal. Anxieties and fears can spiral into feelings of helplessness, and this is exceptionally heartbreaking when we see it in our children, watching them isolate themselves, seeing them suffer, and unsure how to help.

My approach to therapy is empathic, collaborative, and unique to each individual's own needs. I believe the most important component of effective counseling is a genuine relational connection. I strive to create a therapeutic environment in which clients feel comfortable, respected, supported, and understood so that they may actively explore personal issues and experiment with new ways of thinking and behaving. Too often we spend our lives living either in the past or in the future, and consequently struggling with feelings of depression or anxiety.

Healing begins when a safe space is created and your concerns are validated. This is accomplished by building trust and rapport in a client-centered environment. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to your well-being. As a result, I adapt to the unique challenges presented to find the best treatment modality which will foster growth and satisfaction in your life. Techniques I use to enhance the therapeutic environment include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness techniques.

As a holistic psychotherapist, I maintain a "mind-body-environment" perspective to understand how mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health are interconnected and interrelated to our relationships with others, the environment (nature-culture) and ourselves. I recognize that when those elements are imbalanced, it creates symptoms that can lead to suffering. Anxiety and depression, among other mind-body symptoms, are both cause and effect of this imbalance. They are also the cause of feeling stagnant in life, another root of suffering. Therefore, I hope to work with my patients to create balance and find flow in their life.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
