Services


Adolescent Therapy

Are you are a teenager who needs to talk about the many pressures that come with school and the social world? Maybe you are an adolescent who is trying to navigate their independence while carrying burdens that you feel no one quite understands. Are you transitioning into adulthood and feel overwhelmed by indecision, lack of motivation or relationship struggles? Whatever the reason you have come here, I want to help you process your experiences in a safe place. Together we can explore coping strategies, deal with life stressors and create healthier relationships.

Individual Therapy

Do you find young adulthood to be filled with anxiety, unmet expectations and relationship stress? Do you constantly compare yourself to others while feeling drained from the grips of social media, causing lack of motivation and low self-esteem? Are you a woman who is dealing with unresolved trauma, difficult life transitions or unhealthy boundaries? Are you a friend, a spouse, or a parent who never feels good enough or appreciated so you react with anger, defensiveness and then feel guilt and shame afterwards? Are you an empty nester who has dedicated your life to being a parent and now you feel directionless, lost and lonely? Whatever it is that has brought you here, I want to walk along side you as we identify roadblocks that are keeping you stuck from being the best version of yourself.

Family Therapy

Are you a family that is struggling because daily life is just too busy? Maybe you are a couple who have completely different parenting styles and the house is divided? Do you feel overwhelmed because of a special needs child or is sibling rivlary ruling the house? Is your family struggling because of a recent loss or do you need help adjusting to transitions such as divorce, becoming a blended family or a having a new baby? Whatever the reason that has brought you here, my focus is to help you and your family move out of unhealthy patterns and develop new ways to communicate well.

About Me


About Me
Hello and welcome! Please be encouraged that seeking help can be hard, but you have taken the first step. When you visit me for counseling, you can expect a therapist who is warm, nonjudgmental and present with you. I believe that a trusting relationship is one of the most important parts of counseling, so I will provide a safe place for you to have a voice and to be heard. I will work with you to see your strengths, while helping you realize that any limitations you may have, don’t have to be viewed as dead ends to your healing and growth.

I believe that each person has their own story and experience and as such needs therapy that best fits them. As your therapist,

  • I believe you know yourself best so my role will be helping you move through feelings of anxiousness, uncertainty or unresolved trauma so you can have a fuller, healthier life.
  • I feel strongly about helping you see the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Together we will work towards understanding unhealthy ways of thinking while reframing thoughts so that they can be turned into helpful behaviors.

FAQ


As a Pre-Licensed Professional, I am able to provide therapy services under the supervision of a licensed professional counselor or licensed professional social worker. I have met all of the educational requirements, passed the National Counselor Exam and am board certified as a counselor. The only requirement left to become licensed as a professional counselor is to gain 3000 hours of experience under the supervision of a skilled supervisor. Every counselor who becomes licensed must go through this process. If you have any additional questions or need more clarification, please call for a free 15 minute consultation so we can talk further.

Sessions are $60. A sliding scale may be available for those in need. 

Currently, I only accept cash, check or credit card (Visa, Mastercard and Discover). I do not accept insurance at this time. However, my fees are set at a price that often times are comparable to an insurance co-pay. Please check your co-pay, comparing it to what you can afford and if you think we would be a good fit,  please contact me.
At the first session, we will get to know each other and decide if we are a good fit. I will ask you basic questions about your background, and your goals for therapy. I can also answer any questions you might have about the therapy process. If we decide to work together, we will come up with a plan to move forward and schedule our regular session time. Payment will be due at the first session.
Typically, we will meet weekly. Depending on the situation and goals we establish, we could meet more or less frequently. Therapy can last from several weeks to many months depending on your need and preferences.
If you have an emergency, you are required to call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. This is a requirement, as I am unable to be available at all times and emergencies require immediate attention.
