Hello and welcome to my practice. Asking for help is not easy, so I am so glad you are here! I offer phone, video, and in-person sessions.

Being a teen is tough! I focus on issues impacting your teen and provide the tools and strategies for your child to successfully cope and navigate through these challenges. Psychoeducation is an important part of what I do so that your child has the facts needed to make sound decisions, as well as understanding potential consequences of their choices. Let’s face it, teens don’t always want to talk to their parents, but yet there is so much knowledge and guidance we would like them to have.
This is the hardest job EVER! It's hard to see clear when we are exhausted, stressed, and emotionally attached. It is helpful to have someone who is experienced and objective provide guidance and suggestions. I'm your teammate and want to see you and your child thrive and be successful. I know there are dark days when you may feel like a failure, have no idea what to do, and feel hopeless. You are not alone! There is always a way to turn things around but sometimes we need a little help!
Anxiety and panic can be so debilitating and frustrating! There are strategies and coping mechanisms can you can learn and practice which can really help! Sometimes you may not even know what is making you anxious. Understanding where the anxiety is coming from and the triggers, can really help to diminish it. Regardless of where you are in your struggle with anxiety, you can learn to manage it and feel more confident and in control.
This approach is very intuitive for me. It comes down to the relationship built between therapist and client and then weeding out the noise to find what is important, why it's important, and how to move towards achieving the goals.
CBT is widely used because it is effective. It makes sense that thoughts and behaviors effect each other. I will help you identify the things in your life you are not happy about and how your thought process plays a role. Then we will look at things from a different perspective.
It's hard to see clear when we strong emotions but there is always a solution and always a path. Think of me as your knowledgable and objective teammate. Together we will figure out how to get you for where you are to where you want to be.
