About My Clients

Adolescence can be an exciting but scary time in our lives. Preteens and teens are figuring out who they are while also facing pressure from peers, parents, and authority figures. I offer teens a safe space away from these outside influences. As a counselor, I offer both a listening ear and an opportunity to collaborate.

My Background and Approach

Although experienced in working with all ages, I am particularly passionate about working with adolescents. I have experience working within the juvenile justice system where I cultivated skills related to behavior issues and oppositional defiant disorder. I provide a safe space for clients away from the pressures they face daily. Having a neutral party who lends a listening ear and is available to collaborate with can be of great benefit to adolescents as they navigate a challenging time in their life. I believe that every individual has the ability to make positive changes in their lives that result in achieving things they want and may have never thought possible. Counseling is a powerful tool that can help clients determine the “why” behind their behavior and is a tool for exploring different ways to cope. I tailor my counseling approach to each individual client I work with, as there is no “one size fits all” prescription.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In addition to working with adolescents, I am an advocate for the Body Positivity Movement as well as Health At Every Size, a weight-inclusive approach that is part of the fat acceptance movement. I celebrate body diversity and honor differences in size, age, race, ethnicity, gender, dis/ability, sexual orientation, religion, class, and other human attributes. I believe all individuals have a right to feel comfortable and happy in their bodies. One way to begin working towards achieving this is challenging and/or reframing societal norms. Body Positivity is a mindset that is appropriate for all ages.
