As a former teacher, I have extensive experience working with adolescent & teacher populations.
I believe that everyone can develop the skills necessary to live the life they’ve always wanted, and it begins with their mental health. My goal as a therapist is to help clients explore their past, their patterns of thinking, and their behaviors in order to adapt and overcome. Using an individualized and integrative approach, clients will develop the skills needed to reach their goals and become drivers of change. I work with clients to address issues related to trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and stress. I am also trained in EMDR as a trauma treatment modality.

I am here for anyone who is struggling, looking for support, help, or personal exploration. My goal is to provide a safe space and an outside perspective with which to collaborate and problem solve. I identify as queer, and I am LGBTQIA+ affirming. I work with people of all identities, genders, and relationship configurations. I recognize that each client is unique and therefore approach my work using a client-centered, strengths-based model to personalize treatment. I have the added benefit of having a sex therapy certified supervisor, which makes me a great fit for clients who wish to explore intimacy issues and sexual shame.

My approach is based on curiosity about (and deep compassion for) the ways individuals and couples make sense of themselves and their own stories. I am amazed by the power of relationship as a path to self-discovery and relief. My clinical focus is that of parents of teenagers (middle school-college age) who might need extra support or a fresh perspective in order to better navigate struggles that arise during adolescence -- the push-pull of independence-seeking and overwhelm.

I work with teens and adults who identify as quirky/nerdy, highly-intelligent, introverted, highly-sensitive, or as having ADHD or Autism (or some combination of these). Those with these traits often share something: a sense of outsider-ship, of not quite belonging. This can lead to loneliness, shame, isolation, depressions, self-loathing--all that fun stuff.  I, myself, have 3 or 4 of the above traits, AND was homeschooled on top of it, so my own sense of outsider-ship was crowned with awkward homeschooler social skills :) Working, both on self-acceptance, and feeling like I belong, is something I enjoy sharing with my clients.

We've been through a collective trauma this last two years. Therapy is not for "broken" people. It is for those of us who choose support to move forward. "One day, you will tell your story of how you overcame what you went through, and it will be someone else's survival guide." Brene Brown. I am honored to join you in your journey of optimal health and wellness. We will explore the hard stuff, and you will gain insight to the shifts you can create. Call for 30-minute free consult

Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. I enjoy working with individuals on mind/body integration, meaning that you know in your mind how you want to feel, but you don’t yet feel it in your body. We will work together to help you integrate by approaching your unique needs and goals through understanding your story, working with your strengths, and building your inner resources to tend to yourself when challenges arise. This may involve incorporating EMDR, mindfulness practices, visualizations, or inner parts awareness into sessions.

I work with anyone who is feeling stuck in their life- helping them be seen, heard, and understood, as we approach problems with curiosity and empathy. While we can't control what happens to us, we can control how we respond- and therapy is the best way to get all the tools you need to respond to life's ups and downs. If you're motivated and engaged in the process, therapy can give you the set of tools you need to improve (or completely change) your life. I support clients in their goals, applying psycho-education, in-depth therapeutic training, 10+ years of experience, and (always optional) out of session homework.

Thank you for reviewing my practice information. Clients working with me have had success in getting through emotional crisis, dealing with longstanding emotional distress, as well as making changes in what helps them feel worthwhile. If you are in distress due to a loss, a conflict with others, or a conflict within, I may be able to help. My 42 years of practice have given me a broad understanding of the emotional problems that my clients face. I look forward to meeting you.

Grief is a natural response to loss. Loss can be the death of someone, or the end of something, a change in ability or perception, a change in relationship with someone, or a traumatic event. The response (grief and sorrow) to these life events is painful and emotional but can also be physical. It can be expressed with depression and anxiety, as well as cognitively and behaviorally. The goal of treatment is to find peace and understand each individual's strengths, and ability to heal.

I'm a solution-focused, results-oriented counselor with a passion for helping people in the most efficient yet comprehensive manner possible. My clients and I identify opportunities for growth in all three aspects of mental health: behaviors, thoughts and emotions. I then suggest evidence-based treatment methods to match our specified goals. This often includes lifestyle change, healthy habit formation and cognitive therapy. Most often, I work with clients' present-day experiences, with less focus on the past. Many of my clients tell me that traditional talk therapy has not worked for them, and they want to try something different.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. In my experience, when we take an honest look at what makes us who we are and focus on our goals for ourselves we are able to achieve any change we can imagine. I inherently believe that healing is possible, period. And let's face it - life is far too short to stay stuck. Whether that's staying stuck in harmful relationships, stuck in grief, stuck in anger. Instead, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning, and it is possible!

I am not accepting new clients at this time. I work with adolescents and young adults who are going through stressful life transitions, who are experiencing anxiety and depression, or who may be having attention differences. I also work with individuals who have been identified as both highly capable and neurodivergent, sometimes called twice-exceptional. At Avanti Adolescent Services we provide therapy and support to young people, and to their families. As a therapist I will be your ally and advocate, supporting you along the way, as you move back to connecting with family and friends and feeling good.

Welcome! I am glad you are here and taking the first step to make change in your life. I practice from an integrative perspective to fit the needs of each client. Each person has a unique situation that requires me to listen to your story with compassion, curiosity, and openness. I work with clients across the age-span, though I have extensive experience with ages 15-30. Many of my clients enter therapy after a life crisis such as a struggling child or adolescent , a death or illness, a change in career, a break-up, the affect of an addiction, identity issues, or simply patterns of worry or regret.

I offer skillful therapy with warmth, gentleness, humor, and an interactive, down to earth style. My therapeutic approach blends more traditional psychodynamic work with body-oriented psychotherapy, mindfulness practices, and the development of a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship. I work with adolescent and adult individuals, couples, and groups. This work is about igniting what works, what is strong and beautiful in us, as much as it is about resolving old hurt and compassionately holding the difficulties of life. Therapy can facilitate powerful shifts creating greater room for happiness, authenticity and a deeper sense of purpose and meaning.

You may be seeking therapy because you find yourself repeating the same unhelpful patterns – in your relationships, at work or school, or in how you feel and think about yourself – but you don’t seem able to change them. Or you may be concerned about the emotional or behavioral patterns that your child or teenager is developing, and not know how to help them.

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.
