The continual highpoint of my work is the opportunity to explore life with teenagers.  I dedicated a significant portion of my life working with this age group when I lived in California.  I have come to discover teens are passionate, creative, open-minded and insightful!  As I devote time in my office cultivating an atmosphere of trust, support, and authenticity; I always learn a great deal from their perspective.  This has resulted in a profound respect for this age group and the inherent challenges this generation of young people are facing.

It can be helpful to process these challenges with a counselor who listens without judgement, while simultaneously providing support and exploring practical solutions.  I often see significant changes in mood, thought patterns, and behavior as I create a space for exploration in counseling.  These changes positively impact not only the individual but every relationship within the family, often shifting the entire dynamic in the home.  My goal is to get my clients to a place where they embrace their unique identity and find the courage to become who the world is waiting for.  

Areas I work through with teens:

  • Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Various methods of exploration:
