Helping Clients Thrive
We all want to feel healthy, happy, and capable. We want this for our kids, too. But there are times when our own struggles and life’s obstacles get in the way. No one is meant to go through these times alone. As a counselor who specializes in both teens and adults, working with issues like depression, anxiety, and emotional regulation is my passion. If you or a loved one find yourself struggling with depression or anxiety, it’s important to know that it’s ok to be in that struggle. But you don’t have to stay there. I want to make sure you feel listened to and supported as you begin the counseling process. In our sessions together, you can expect to learn about yourself, the way the body and mind work, and how new experiences can shape how we see ourselves and the world. I hope you leave each session with the reassurance that your goals and vision for the future are within reach. Feel free to give me a call if you think I might be a good fit for you or a loved one.
Being a parent is challenging, and not knowing how to help is just one of the “stuck places” that parents find themselves in. Whether you believe it or not, your presence and interaction is an important part of your child’s change process. Along with providing your child with a supportive space to talk, I also devote time to working with parents to improve parent-child relationships and family interactions. I hope you, as the parent, feel informed and encouraged throughout the counseling process.
For Teens (and Adults Too):
You might already have some ideas about what counseling is like. Those thoughts are important. One thing I hope you find in meeting with me is that you’re listened to. I mean really listened to. What you think matters. I also hope you feel more and more comfortable with talking, sharing, and even laughing, with each session we have. This is where counseling starts. Where it goes is up to you. And I’ll do my best to help you get there.
How I Recharge
I love hiking, camping, and most things outdoors. Fresh air, sunshine, and some exercise are my keys to feeling rejuvenated and healthy. I also cherish deep conversations with good friends. Much of my energy and fun time is devoted to chasing and wrestling my twin boys, who keep our entire family learning and loving.
Why I Love Being a Counselor
Often, the stresses and fast pace of life can cause us to be disconnected from ourselves. I love the moments when clients can courageously meet the deepest parts of themselves through the counseling experience. These moments impact both the client and the counselor. Providing a path towards grace and change in a person’s life is both an honor and a privilege.
