About Me

I believe that clients are very skilled and capable of helping themselves, and that with my guidance and help they will no longer fear looking in depth at the thoughts that are causing them to feel the way they do. I also believe that how the client thinks about a challenge directly impacts how they react or act. Creating a relaxed and trusting environment where the client feels comfortable, is key for them to be able to gain a better understanding of themselves. This leads to the ultimate goal of transition, advancement, and success.


CBT helps clients identify their distressing thoughts and evaluate how realistic those thoughts are.This works well with adolescents who can have difficulty balancing what's "permanent" and what's "temporary."Helping them break out of that thinking pattern is what I do best. Teens are energizing, and fun!


I have 28 years experience with counseling adolescents. I am able to understand and relate to the needs of teens from eclectic backgrounds, while maintaining productive relationships with parents and schools. The goal is to have clients grow personally and overcome their life challenges. I also see individuals and couples.
