I am a Licensed Professional
Counselor, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, and a
member of the American Counseling Association.
My speciality and passion is working with teenage girls
and their families as well as teaching Grief Recovery.
I have 16 years in private practice as well as other
clinical settings, working with kids ages 6-18 years
and their families. These children and young adults
have various life stressors they are trying to cope with,
such as anxiety, ADHD/ADD, depression, self-worth,
relationship issues, family stress, parent-child relationship
problems, sexual and gender identity, disordered eating,
self injurious behavior and suicidality. Often both the
child/young adult AND the parents find themselves without
the necessary coping skills to navigate through these issues
on their own. Exhaustion and frustration turns into more
unwanted dysfunction, so creating more feelings of low
self-worth in both the child and the parents. This leads to
more broken relationships, and so the cycle continues.
In my office I strive to provide a safe, nurturing
environment where we can work together to plant the
seeds necessary for your health, hope and happiness by
healing the pain caused by these changes in your life.
