Children / Adolescents
I have a passion for working with children and adolescents who struggle with behavioral issues, family conflict, life changes, self-esteem and anxiety. My ultimate goal is to help children/adolescents understand that it is okay to not be okay and know that it is okay to seek help. Children and teens need to know that their feelings are valid and their struggles are important to others. I co-partner with children, teens and parents to help with successful communication skills and better understanding of feelings. Together we will create a positive space and experience where children and teens can work on regulation skills, improving negative self-talk, as well as anxiety and depression. I am well equipped to address a wide array of issues and I have experience providing tools for parents to set their child up for success.
Parent and family training is at the core of my work as you are with your child the most, it is vital that you feel skilled to support your child at home, school and outside of the treatment room. Parents need to know they have the skills and patience to work with their children to resolve ongoing behavioral issues.
Couples & Family Therapy
Let’s face it, time changes us all – but it doesn’t need to make us grow apart. One of the biggest myths is that couples counseling is for failing relationships. Seeking therapy for a relationship brings the opportunity to strengthen your bond beyond what you thought was possible. By exploring each other’s minds, emotions, experiences, and expectations; your vulnerability will bring healing and intimacy to a whole new level. My role as a therapist in couples counseling is to provide unbiased support to help the relationship grow through better communication and deeper understanding.
Family relationships are an important factor in psychological health. Family therapy focuses on enhancing communication between members, recognizing mixed messages that often occur within the family, and strengthening family resilience during difficult times. I want to arm you with the tools to tackle tough issues as they arise with those you love and those who love you. My goals is to help you find clarity and strength while moving forward with one another.
