Is your teenager:

  • Unmotivated/Uninterested in life
  • Disrespectful to authority figures
  • Issues with substance abuse
  • Overwhelmed with anxiety and/or depression
  • Experiencing the grief and loss of a loved one
  • Processing a traumatic event

Being a youth pastor in several congregations for nearly 10 years, I have gained understanding and appreciation for the issues and struggles that adolescents face in today’s world. In addition to the issues I am competent to treat in children, I have helped adolescents deal with issues of:

  • Addiction
  • Sexual identity
  • Decision making and career planning
  • The inability “to launch” from mom and dad

I also enjoy the opportunity to provide spiritual direction for those students with questions and anxiety about the meaning of life. I like to discover what a student is passionate about, and use this as a bridge towards living their life to the fullest.
