My passion is to help others find more joy and meaning in their lives. I work creatively and collaboratively with adults, teens, and children to explore the heart of the matter.
Together we consider (investigate, examine, observe) symptoms and emotional pain; we design realistic goals; we develop skills to alleviate obstacles; and, as we work to achieve your dreams, we discover your increased motivation and self-confidence.
My specialty is working with adolescents through their magnificent growing season. Forging a personal identity often creates peer problems, family conflicts, sagging self-worth and doubts about how to move forward. Teaching them various coping skills, risk assessment, and pro-social strategies assists them identifying and implementing their own unique personal strengths.
I enjoy building positive and meaningful rapport with a wide variety of clients. Quickly, adults and couples also feel ease and comfort in defining goals for working together. It is exciting to work with you toward living a more balanced, successful and delight-filled lifestyle. I look forward to our journey together.
