Who I Serve

Adolescents

Being a teenager is hard. At this stage in life they are starting to develop their identity, what they believe, and striving for more independence from their parents. With that has always come many social and developmental struggles. However, teens today are growing up in a much more complex environment, with more social and developmental struggles then ever dealt with before. Cyber bullying, constant access to technology, video games, social media overload, and the list goes on. These factors have heavily increased the amount of mental health issues among teens today. My goal is to equip teens with the tools they need to navigate through the highs and lows of growing up by providing a safe space that is all their own to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and needs. Although teens are not in the same developmental stage as children, I still find it useful to use creative expression such as art and play, in an age appropriate way, to help teens work through the variety of challenges they face.

Young Adults

During this time in life many transitions take place; starting college, moving, getting a job, the beginning and ending of relationships, and the ever increasing level of responsibility. It is also a time of self discovery and exploration, a time to really come into your own and decide who you want to be and what you want to do in life. Although these transitions and discoveries can be exciting, they can also bring about stress and anxiety. My goal is to provide a safe space where clients can feel heard, understood, and fully process the difficulties that these transitions can bring about. I believe that through gaining awareness of yourself and becoming honest about the barriers preventing healing, personal goals can be achieved and true transformation can happen.

Individuals

As we all know, life is ever changing and so are we. Getting married, starting a family, experiencing loss, starting a job, leaving a job or going through a divorce or breakup to name a few. These times, while some can be exciting, can also lead to heightened anxiety and a feeling of not knowing where to go from here and maybe even hopelessness. Through everything, we are all just trying to find happiness and peace, which most of the time is easier said than done. So sometimes we need another persons perspective to help get us to where we want to be. My job is to walk along side you in this journey. To help you as best I can to move through the hard and get you to your version of happiness, whatever that may be. So you can live a full and healthy life.
