Healing doesn't happen in a straight line but we do have the power to heal, and we're not meant to do it alone.

Surviving and thriving in our teen years can be one of our biggest challenges in life. As we straddle childhood and adulthood we can struggle to gain ownership of our identity and have difficulty learning to shoulder new responsibilities. We might have already accumulated significant trauma and be lost under the weight of it. These years can also be full of passion, drive and excitement. I specialize in providing support for adolescents to explore their difficulties and heal on their own terms.
It's cliche, but it may be true that the only constant is change. Yet, somehow we often expect we are going to arrive at a point in life where we've got everything together, handled, indefinitely. Life's transitions (school, career, family, romantic relationships, friends, passions, interests, goals) can be painful and overwhelming at times. With help and support, we can learn to move through transitions with more agility and create positive changes we could never have seen coming.
Living with depression can be overwhelming and feel unfair. It may cause us to question whether or not we have what it takes to go on living. I bring expertise in helping clients learn how to manage symptoms of depression, connect with their gifts, build community and find purpose in life.
