You know that you have the power to overcome your anxiety and overwhelm – you just desire support in doing so. Lately, it’s been taking over your day to day life. Your marriage, friendships, work or family life are likely suffering due to this. It’s difficult finding the motivation to address these struggles alone. Maybe you are a parent wanting more for your teen or child, but aren’t sure how to get there. Perhaps you are wanting to change negative patterns or behaviors within yourself. It could be that your relationship or marriage is falling apart, but you have faith that things can be resolved. You may be worried about what the future holds for you or your loved one – feeling stuck and confused with where to turn. You came to the right place for support.
Together, we can help you truly figure out where you want to go on your journey. I know it can be intimidating to get started in therapy – but you made it here, and that is truly something to be proud of. Whether you are needing support for your child, teen, or yourself, you are not alone in this journey. It’s not a sign of weakness to seek out help. Instead, it’s a sign of courage. And the fact that you’re able to trust me with yourself or a loved one, speaks louder than words.
My goal is to provide you and your family with a comfortable space to share your innermost thoughts and feelings without judgment; An area in which we can foster growth, healing, and empowerment together. Therapy is ultimately a personal journey of self-discovery and growth, but I will be there with you every step of the way, helping you shape the person you wish to be.
In working with children, teens, and families I empower the child and teen while building growth within the parents as well in order to foster lasting change. I believe we all have the power to grow! There is always room to continue learning about yourself. You can create real change in your life or your family’s life. If you struggle with trauma, depression, or anxiety – I will be here for you.
My Therapy Specialties Include:
Child and Teen Therapy
In the room, I aim to develop a close, personal connection with my clients. I strive to give each client the undivided attention they deserve, by providing a non-judgmental and supportive zone. It’s possible for you to feel comfortable expressing yourself and your true inner thoughts. Together, we will work as co-authors to help re-write your story and shape it into one that you prefer to live. My goal is for you to not only live, but thrive in your new found glory and empowerment of your self’s; self-confidence, self-esteem, self-efficacy, and self-love.
My go to modality is an integration of Bowenian and Narrative therapy. I like to combine the differentiation aspect of Bowenian therapy with the story-based aspects of Narrative therapy to help my clients not only have a higher level of differentiation, but to also become the person they want to be in their narrative. In addition, I like to take a detailed look into your family history to understand relationships and connections. Sometimes our familys’ past shapes our present and future. Discovering patterns in the family may give you insight into breaking those destructive habits.
