Counseling for Children

If you are a parent of a child who is having problems with behavior, has had a traumatic event happen in their lives, or is having problems fitting in socially, you and your child are not alone in the struggle. I have worked extensively with children in crisis, and have training in cognitive behavioral therapy and play therapy. Children think and learn through play, and depending on their age, do not have the ability to express in words what they are thinking and feeling. Being able to work through their trauma or other struggles through play therapy is the best path to healing.

Counseling for Teens

As your children become teenagers, they are faced with numerous challenges and changes. The combined surge of hormones along with an undeveloped frontal lobe (the area of the brain that controls reason and expressive language) is the perfect recipe for anyone to have difficulty figuring out how to fit into the world around them. Parents struggle to understand their teenagers and vice versa. I offer a place to feel un-judged and able to explore with your teenager who they are and who they want to be. I can also help parents understand how to parent teenagers in order to set them on the path of success.

Trauma

Experiencing a traumatic event can be very isolating and devastating. I can tell you right now that I am here for you and we can get through this together. If you are willing to tell me your story, I will provide a trustworthy space for you to heal. I am nationally certified in Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral therapy, which is an evidenced-based treatment shown to be effective for children, adolescents, and their families. Research shows that within 8-25 sessions you will be feeling better and have a decreased chance of experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Anxiety and/or Depression

If you are living with anxiety and/or depression, you are not alone. If you are strong enough to ask for help for healing, I can promise you that if you work hard with me, you will start feeling better. Through our sessions together and with the strength that God has given you, you will be able to work on your anxiety and/or depression through the evidence-based practice of cognitive behavioral therapy. With hard work and God by your side, you can accomplish anything.

Family Counseling

There are many different types of families, each with their own unique issues. Having worked with numerous different cultures and family structures, I will provide a safe space for you to confront these issues head on and work through the barriers in your family relationships. You will have the opportunity to be able to communicate without fighting and share love with each other in order to create a warm and encouraging environment for every member in your family.

Couples Counseling

There are ups and downs in any relationship. I offer an open atmosphere where you can share your wants and needs in your relationship. In sharing your deepest fears and greatest desires and identifying your barriers in communication, your relationship will take on a whole new meaning.
