I have developed a strong reputation for careful and collaborative concern with those that are important to the care of you and your family. This sometimes looks like a call to a teacher or professor after a particularly tough week. This looks like coordinating care with a pediatrician or psychiatrist for medicine management. This could look like discussing challenging scenarios with your attorney or parent facilitator. Whatever the need, I strive to go the extra mile.
There is no better time to start. I don't make false promises or lead you down a rabbit trail. I know your time, money and resources are valuable. I develop a strong working plan with you at the beginning of therapy or coaching. I assess progress of the treatment plan each month. I work to give you a strong working rationale of the progress and scope of therapy. I value honest feedback on the services provided.
I strive towards patience and understanding in the midst of challenging life circumstances. No story is too big or scary. I collaborate with clients by providing support in meeting their desired goals. I remind clients of their inherent self worth and dignity.
Play is a natural language for children to work through fears, concerns, and big events in their life. My practice uses the power of play to help kids with big life circumstances, whether divorce, grief, or school related concerns.
I strive to stay relevant to what is happening in the fast moving world of adolescence. Connection is vital. Meaningful discussion and continued dialogue is my goal. Parents are included in the process! I offer parent sessions to help brainstorm more effective ways in managing stress in the home.
I offer individual counseling appointments for college aged students, young adults and professionals. I work with college students remotely and in-person. Common issues arise with anxiety, social stress, depression and organization issues.
Coaching differs from counseling in many aspects. Coaching gives a more directive, focused approach to problem solving. It focuses less on the past and more on figuring out your future and goals. I take a strengths based approach in my coaching. We look at your current problems and brainstorm options through obstacles getting in the way. Problems can include family systems, business systems, employee/employer problems, life goals, parenting snafus, social skills, relationship issues, and much more.
