The relationship we have with ourselves is the most important relationship we have, and individual therapy can help us move past feelings of low self-worth to a place of confidence and inner healing. There are a variety of reasons that an individual may seek therapy, and my services are tailored to each client to ensure a customized plan that allows for personal growth and development. Whether you struggle with generalized anxiety, post-partum depression, adapting to a new career or life change, or a specific abuse or trauma situation that has long been suppressed, the right therapy approach can enhance your well-being, improve your physical and mental health, and change your interpersonal relationships for the better. I work with each client to break through barriers and self-imposed limitations, while using proven methodologies to reframe the mind and change the narrative that has created unhealthy emotional connections. We’ll work together on a personal approach to healing and self-acceptance that will lead to long-term change and a future filled with joy.
Adolescence is a challenging and overwhelming time in a young person’s life, but when combined with low self-image, lack of confidence, depression, or anxiety, these issues have the power to negatively impact interpersonal relationships and academic success. Dedicated therapy can help young individuals learn coping strategies to enhance social, physical, and psychological development, which will set a solid foundation as they move from the struggles of adolescence to their later teenage years and beyond. The bodies, minds, and emotions of adolescents are changing every day, leading to struggles with peer acceptance, academic pressure, and feelings of frustration at being misunderstood, or feeling as if their opinions aren’t heard or validated. Therapy provides a safe and confidential space to discover themselves, as they learn sound reasoning methods to deal with social and emotional issues such as bullying, decision making, and increasing resiliency through trauma or adversity. Adolescent therapy is a meaningful and insightful method to address challenges before they lead to ingrained behavioral patterns that are difficult to overcome in later stages of life.
Parents face daily challenges and frustrations as they do their best to raise their children to model love, compassion, and ethical behavior. Parenting challenges can be made much more difficult during times of grief, loss, divorce, or trauma that ultimately affect the dynamic of the whole family. Family therapy is designed to facilitate open discussion where children and parents can communicate honestly without fear of reprimand, from a place of love, honesty, and compassion. When children and parents are encouraged to share their feelings and establish common ground, the process results in thriving children that feel loved and understood by their parents. Parents will also learn what is developmentally expected at different childhood ages, making them more aware of problematic behavior or communication barriers that may be present during adolescence or teenage years. Family therapy will help parents acknowledge their child’s struggles, attitude, or behavior, while incorporating teaching/modeling strategies centered on love and compassion. We’ll discover together the importance of setting rules and structure at home, while also allowing children the space they need to grow, learn, and develop on their own.
