Individual Counseling

There are so many challenges in everyday life that can at times simply feel overwhelming.

​ 

Life events, significant life transitions, and other traumas can have a lasting effect on us. Additionally, looming stress, anxiety, sadness, and discomfort, relationship stressors, daily demands, and worrisome feelings and thoughts can leave us feeling frustrated, confused, and at times hopeless.

I also recognize that children often seem exposed to so much and adolescence can be-simply put- challenging. Research has shown that mental health challenges are growing within this population. Psychotherapy with children and adolescents utilizes a variety of techniques and methods to help those experiencing difficulties with emotions or behavior to build health and resilience. Goals for therapy may be specific change in behavior, improved relations with friends or family – or more general- less anxiety, and better self-esteem. Some of the different types of psychotherapy used to help children share their feelings and resolving problems are playing, drawing, building resilience, mindfulness, and coping strategies, with the use of interactive tools, as well as talk therapy.

 

It is my purpose to help clients learn about themselves, recover from painful experiences, and find the best solutions specific to their individual concerns and objectives. It is my focus to build a safe and compassionate space that allows for people to develop a wide array of skills; develop self-awareness and acceptance, encourage self-exploration and awareness, identify and reinforce boundaries, enhance communication skills, and improving the use of healthy coping skills, to name a few.
