Child, Teen, and Adult Counseling Services
I’ve had the pleasure of working with adults and providing counseling services to them for the past 10 years. During that time I have come to believe that each person’s emotional well-being and how they obtain it is deeply personal and often needs a holistic approach. In order to grow and live a fulfilled life, we need to examine the different areas of our lives, including: our lifestyle choices, overall values, relationships, our support system, how we communicate with ourselves and others, what expectations we have of ourselves, the negative beliefs about ourselves we struggle with, and our self-esteem and our level of self care and self-compassion.

I work with children to adults and even families and parents who experience barriers to feeling happier, healthier, and more in control of thoughts and emotions. Watching our children struggle can be difficult and evoke strong emotions; I offer a variety of supportive parenting techniques and positive discipline strategies in order to end the battle. Many of the people I work with struggle with one and/or more of the following:

-Anxiety and worry about their life decisions, actions, what is happening in their life that is out of their control and in their future.
-Negative feelings and beliefs about themselves that they aren’t good enough, not worthy of good things, or they carry shame and/or guilt about things they’ve done and how they handled things in the past.
-High stress and overwhelmed feelings about all that is on their plate at this time in their life and they don’t know how to lighten their load, not sure if they can handle it all much longer, and are at a loss as to how to help themselves feel better.
-Lack of confidence in how they are coping with and handling a situation or relationship in their life. Whether it’s how they are parenting their child who struggles with emotional and/or learning challenges, how to let go of their young adult child who is going to be living out on their own, getting through the mid-life challenges that are plaguing them, or handling an unhealthy and stressful work situation that shakes their confidence and feelings of being capable believe we all have the ability to find the answers we need and are striving to find.
Yet, there are times when the difficulties we are challenged with cause us to feel unprepared and unable to navigate. In these times of change, we need to seek help, guidance, and support to help us work through them so we can get back to feeling more like ourselves again.

By seeking help via counseling and therapy, we give ourselves the opportunity to receive some extra support and encouragement as we go through these uncharted territories. We deserve to allow ourselves to receive help when things in life are extra difficult and stressful. My hope is to clearly convey to the people who I have the opportunity to work with that they have within themselves the power to improve their lives and heal.
Bio
I have been providing counseling and therapy services for the past 10 years. As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I have had the opportunity to work with individuals across the lifespan, couples, and families both in short-term and long-term supportive counseling relationships.

During my counseling career I have worked in outpatient mental health center settings, crisis situations in the emergency room, a substance abuse treatment center, and another private therapy practice. Through these experiences, I believe I have gained opportunities to be challenged, develop new skills, and achieve personal and professional growth.
