While I welcome anyone coming through my door [individual adults, couples, families], I have found my niche is working with teens and/or parents of teens.
My clinical focus and personal experience draws me to providing treatment of trauma and its effects; namely anxiety, depression, and addiction [chemical dependency and process addictions].
All sessions are self pay

Therapy is developing a healing relationship with another person who has training and experience in guiding or counseling the psychological processes of another human being. It’s an opportunity to get to know yourself through another person’s eyes; to gain alternative insight into your story. A common therapy session incorporates many parts of typical conversation: speaking, listening, reasoning, empathizing, reacting, validating. You and I will speak about your concerns, your accomplishments, your pain, your goals and aspirations. You will educate me your way of seeing the world, and at other times I will talk with you about your processes as they appear to me in session.
I have found that people [not things] hold the strongest potential forces to hurt and heal us. No one can hurt us like another person, and no one can heal us like another person. One of my primary responsibilities as your therapist is to help coach you on recognizing and relinquishing the “hurting” relationships and establishing and nurturing the “healing” relationships.
While many will initially seek out individual therapy, it can be beneficial to consider couples or family therapy. Having those you are in relation with present in therapy can provide opportunities to address some of the unintentional and dysfunctional patterns of communication within the relationship.

“STAGES OF HEALING” addresses trauma resiliency for adolescents ages 12-18. The course will meet weekly 6:30pm-7:30pm and will run for a month.
At its most basic definition, trauma is when our expectation about how life will turn out is either severely damaged or goes completely unmet. I have put together a curriculum that will aid both categories of adolescents: 1) teens who have already experienced significant trauma and 2) teens who have yet to experience significant trauma.
This course will utilize an 8-step model to orient the teens to:
The curriculum is designed with enough structure to meet these topics and many others as they come up in group discussion.
