My Approach to Helping
You play many roles in your life. You are a friend, partner, employee, student, family member, a parent, teacher, and a support system. You play all of these roles, and sometimes at the end of the day you have nothing left. You find yourself needing help managing the different roles in your life. On top of these roles you struggle with the daily stressors of life that can include finances, personal and work life. Eventually you feel like everything is going to fall apart, and you are not enjoying things that use to make you happy. I can help people who exhausted and are in the middle of chaos. Together we can sort through all the "stuff" that is going on and reconnect you to your passions and joys. We can also work on identifying what is really important to you, and you can start living life the way you want.

Being a teen is difficult, they deal with a lot of different stressors from school to up holding an image on social media. Teens may also face low confidence and pressures to be cool. These unrealistic ideas can lead to the feelings of not being good enough, anger, and sadness. Teens are going through a lot not only physically but also mentally and emotionally, and I hope to help them go through this tough time and help them live the fullest life they can.

My Role as a Therapist
You may imagine psychotherapy as "coming into a room and sitting across from someone and telling them your problems". Some of you may even imagine laying on a couch while I analyze you! However there is many ways to conduct psychotherapy, and my preferred method is eco-therapy. I can take you into the outdoors and together we can connect with the environment around us and begin the healing. We can just walk and talk, or we can take a short hike. Just like some of the trails you may have been on, life can be a little bit rocky, but I am here to help you find a path.
