I am an LPC with several years of experience working with youth and families. I love helping others with a very down-to-earth approach.

Everyone talks about self esteem like its so easy. ITS NOT! We receive a million messages a day that tell us that there is something wrong with us! Then we are told to live life to its fullest! How in the world does that work?? By identifying those messages and how they are intended to work, we can separate who you are from who you believe yourself to be and peel away the layers of B.S. to find you again and pull you out where you can be free and find love and peace for the real you!
Every family has its challenges. Just watch any Christmas movie made in history and you will see all the good, bad, and ugly come to a head as each of the families on screen try and navigate ONE holiday! Your family is no exception and even if you know it, you may still be facing challenges in your family and/or household that have you wondering if things will ever get better? I am all about helping you all rumble through your challenges to find the way to loving one another well!
Being a teenager is HARD! You have all of the hormones of a pregnancy going on with a brain that will not be fully developed until you are 25!! How do these pre-adults navigate all the stress of academics, craving friends like candy, and feeling that (despite being teens not so long ago) your parents have NO IDEA how you feel?! I am here with the knowledge, science, and experience to help your teen clean house in their own minds and emotional pantry's while also helping translate between you. ;)
Family is wild because we love hard but we can sometimes fight hard too! I believe in helping families in communication and healing so that they can love even better - by meeting each member where they are, speaking their language, and helping them to communicate and also be genuinely heard.
CBT is under the clinical belief that what we believe manifests in how we think, feel, and even behave! Peeling back the layers of all of these human experiences will allow you to find your true self, make adjustments where you choose to, knowing where you maybe cannot, and upgrade each area to a better and more whole you!
Solution Focused Treatment is of the mind that addressing the area in your life or symptoms of concerns, you will be able to live a more full life and find more joy! This approach is not often long but is intentional in addressing what needs to be in order to find peace and health in your day to day.
