My Approach to Helping
Whether speaking face to face with a person, presenting, or working with a group, it is with service to other people that I find fulfillment and meaning in my life's work. I work with individuals, teens, couples, and families. I counsel to my client's entire well-being, including their intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. If any one of these facets of your being is out of balance, or lacking in some way, the whole of you is affected.
As a presenter and as a therapist, I speak to teens and families on the struggles faced by parents and their kids today. I take away the burden faced by busy parents by doing the homework on these subjects. The amount of information, and the speed at which it comes at us, is overwhelming even for the professionals, let alone parents who are busy providing for their family's needs. I focus specifically on topics such as: teen sexualization, media manipulation, digital citizenry, and isolation faced by parents parenting in the 21st century.n, Digital Citizenry, and Isolation faced by parents parenting in the 21st Century.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Teens, Families, Couples, Individuals
Families that communicate well will stay well. I involve the whole family in this process. At times mom and dad might come in, or the kids on their own, or any combination thereof. I also provide up-to-date information on the world children and adults live in.
Tweens/Teens: A safe place is offered to your tween/teen to explore and discuss sensitive issues they are facing. I use a collaborative problem solving approach involving the child, parents, physicians, teachers, school counselors, mentors, and others.
Couples: Working with a couple that is experiencing conflict and is looking for help with moving its relationship forward.
Individual counseling gives you the opportunity to develop a sense of who you truly are. It also helps you to discover how your attitudes, feelings, and behaviors might negatively affect your environment, leading you to discover your true positive potential
I create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment that aids you in finding solutions to your problems.
