Are you WORRIED about your teen? Is your teen struggling with relationships, school, a life transition or emotional outbursts? Are you tired of nagging, fighting and feeling like the "bad guy"? Maybe you feel disconnected from your teen, worried that you might lose them… It's okay, worrying is a normal part of being a parent. You worry because you CARE! In counseling, teens are able to build self-esteem and develop coping skills that equip them to succeed in relationships, school and society.
I believe your body is WORTHY of love and care. Through counseling, you can break free from the endless dieting cycles, self-loathing and shame. You can find freedom to eat, exercise and live in a healthy way! I work from a Health at Every Size (HAES) approach, which accepts and respects the natural diversity of body types. In sessions, I also utilize Intuitive Eating (IE) skills, which promote rebuilding trust with your body and rediscovering the simple joys of eating and movement.
Are you looking for a counselor who understands your faith? As a Christian counselor, I recognize the importance of integrating faith in the process of emotional and spiritual healing. Combining Biblical truths with evidence-based approaches, I provide holistic care to those who wish to include spirituality in therapy.
While I integrate various treatment approaches into my work, my primary therapeutic modalities include Attachment-Based Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also incorporate mindfulness and somatic interventions to restore the connection between mind, body and spirit.
