My Approach to Helping

Are you a young adult having a difficult time navigating life's obstacles and feel like an emotional hostage to any trauma or stressors experienced in your early life? Are you the parent of a child or teen struggling with mental health or behavioral challenges? Life is too short to allow emotional distress, trauma, negative relationships, or mental health and behavioral challenges to shackle you. Imagine a life where you or your child are actively healing from emotional pain, and have successfully found meaning and purpose in your schoolwork, relationships, and other life areas. This life IS possible.

I have dedicated my career to helping young individuals and families find healing and purpose. My niche is child, teen and young adult therapy and I specialize in depressionmood disorders, anxiety, self-harm, trauma, attachment issues, suicidal ideation, and family conflict. I strive to assist young individuals with transitioning into happy, healthy adults.

Life stories do not have to end with emotional pain and suffering. Young clients can move forward with resilience and own and shape their narrative, add meaningful chapters, and craft their desired ending. Visit my website for more information on how I can help you or for parentsguardians, your child and to schedule your free phone consultation.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Locating the right therapist is a process similar to purchasing a new car. There are many options to choose from yet a test drive is necessary to ensure you've found what you're looking for. Exploring therapists can take some time but is necessary to ensure both the therapist and client can enter into a therapeutically beneficial relationship. Clients are often concerned with how to know they've found the right therapist. I believe that the only way to know for sure if a therapist may be right for you is to attend a session. I offer a free 15 minute initial phone consultation to allow potential clients to briefly speak with me, discuss their presenting symptoms or concerns, and hear about my therapeutic approach and experience. While the initial call is helpful, it is brief. During an intake session, this is the opportunity for you and I to have an in depth discussion regarding goals and treatment and to determine whether a therapeutic relationship may be a good fit. I recommend attending at least one additional session after the diagnostic intake to further get a feel for your my style. There are 3 things I think each client should feel if your therapist is the right fit for you: 1. Safety: You should feel the ability to be your true, authentic, and honest self. 2. Competence: It should feel like your therapist is knowledgeable about your particular issue and has the necessary skills, experience, and expertise to assist you with your needs. 3.Sense of Connection: You should feel comfortable with your therapist's personality and session style and the conversation should be equally interactive. Listen to your gut, and if it just doesn't feel right, it is recommended that you have a conversation with your therapist right away to discuss termination and potential references.
