Everyone struggles with the challenges of life and everyone can use some help once in awhile to get through a difficult period. Challenging times can be scary and overwhelming, but they can also present an opportunity for growth and positive change if managed appropriately. In my practice, I work collaboratively with teens and individual adults to help identify and solve problems that get in the way of achieving life aspirations. The goal of therapy is to empower people to live richer and more satisfying lives.My style as a psychologist is supportive, collaborative and interactive in sessions. I use a compassionate approach when helping people make changes in their lives. Through our work together, clients will develop new tools for interacting in the world which will improve their life and bring about greater satisfaction and happiness.
For adolescents and parents of adolescents, finding a therapist who works well with teens and who has extensive experience with the particular challenges teens face can be difficult. I have over 15 years of experience working with teenagers, from working on highschool and college campuses as a mental health counselor, to clinic settings, and in private practice. I can also help guide parents who are struggling with raising a teenager to create a more positive and loving parent-adolescent relationship.
I know that choosing a therapist is a personal experience. I offer a free half hour phone consultation so that I can answer any questions you may have about my background, therapy style and therapy in general. A sliding scale is available for clients with financial difficulties.
