After working with adolescents for the past 21 years, I have had the opportunity to work with specialties including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, addictions, mood and personality disorders, suicidal ideation, and relationship issues. I believe that the triggers and obstacles we have as teenagers are the same throughout our lives. If we learn how to identify our triggers and obstacles early on and develop coping strategies, we are much better equipped when we get to the big life issues. I have come to realize that most people are searching to discover who they are and their place in this world. This is not unique to teenagers. Many of us are not equipped with the coping strategies, resiliency, or conflict resolution skills to move through life and become independent. This causes anxiety, depression, panic, fear, anger, and pain. I believe that every person has the answers within them to every challenge they face.
I would like you to feel that we are working in partnership to make the changes you would like to make in your life. Personal and family history are very important to to help establish lifestyle patterns. Overall, I will help assist you to come up with new ways to think about what is going on in your life. Then we can develop a plan that helps you find insight about yourself and you can see the plan in action.
I have been married for 10 years to a former Marine. We have a yellow-lab named Abby and she is super spoiled! I love animals and would adopt every dog that is out there if I could.
