Counseling for Adolescents & Adults
Welcome to my website. I'm glad you're here. You may be visiting because you're feeling worried, stuck or alone with no idea what to do at this point. You may be at the end of your rope and know something needs to change. I can help. My experience and passion are in working with teens and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, low self-esteem, life transitions, and many other challenging issues.
My approach to counseling helps clients learn healthy coping skills while also assisting them in making the connection between mind, body and spirit. Clients begin to notice and better understand the thoughts, emotions, and core beliefs surrounding a problem. Once this occurs, space is opened up and there is room for intentional and lasting change and growth.
As a mother of three children in a blended family that includes one young adult, one teenager, and one elementary school-age child, I can relate to the changes in physical, emotional, and social development that occur in adolescence. I can also relate to the anxiety, depression, and unhealthy coping skills these changes can set in motion. If not addressed, these patterns tend to follow us into adulthood.
My real world experience combined with trauma focused training and degrees in Psychology and Mental Health Counseling allow me to offer clients a unique perspective, skill set, and understanding of the many challenging issues that face today's adolescents and adults.
I would love to get to know you and would be honored to walk with you through the oftentimes messy journey toward healing and becoming your best self. You don't have to do this alone.
While I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, I do enjoy working with couples, parents, and families too. Please call or email to see if I may be a good fit for you.

More than anything else, I believe that people are resilient. I also believe that you are the expert on your life and that sometimes life can just get too overwhelming to handle alone. By being genuine, curious, open, accepting, and culturally humble, I meet my clients where they are and help them get where they want to go.
While it can be very difficult to notice sometimes, most adolescents and young adults desire to achieve independence while still remaining close to family. Therapy may be a good option for those coping with shifting family dynamics or when an issue arises that affects familial relations.
Sometimes people find the support of a therapist to be helpful during the transition from adolescence into adulthood, especially if they experience mental health concerns or other difficulties as they become accustomed to new expectations, roles, and responsibilities.
My approach to counseling is practical, compassionate, down to earth, and strengths-based. When possible, I work collaboratively with clients on their desired goals while simultaneously helping to rebuild connection and trust within the family.
I encourage my clients to learn more about themselves and their worldview. My approach helps clients get to the root of what is causing their symptoms and affecting their functioning. I help clients see the many aspects that have informed and influenced their presenting problem.
