Specializing in Teenage Girls

and their Families

Helping adolescents cope with the struggles of

being a teen.


Teens today often tell me they wish they could just be on their own, making their

own choices and being respected, yet they feel like they have not had time to

be a kid. The struggle and pain of identity issues, low self-esteem and poor family

connection can lead to intense anger, poor body image, drug and alcohol misuse,

increased family problems, irritability, depression, and even suicidal ideation or

self-harming thoughts.  These thoughts and feelings can be intense, scary and

lonely. In individual therapy, I will work with you to feel better about youself

and your family, identify key issues of concern and to develop healthier coping

and decision making skills.


Grief  Recovery®

Moving beyond the pain caused by the loss


You know how when people say to you, "move on," or "let go," when your heart

is broken but they don't teach you how?

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to any significant emotional loss.

Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar

pattern of behavior.  Recovery from loss is accomplished by discovering and

completing all of the undelivered communications that accrue in relationships.

Completion of pain caused by loss is what allows us to Let Go and Move On.

 I teach people HOW  to move beyond their pain so they can truly ENJOY their

life again.

Some examples of loss:

  • Death of a loved one
  • Divorce
  • End or change in a relationship
  • Loss of safety
  • Death of a pet
  • Infertility/Miscarriage/Adoption
  • Moving
  • Dealing with a Mental Illness
  • Peer/Friendship Issues
  • Poor Family Connection

Child/Adolescent Therapy

Staying the Course of Childhood/Learning to let

your Adolescent go.

For a variety of reasons many children require professional help. Helping

children includes helping parents cope with their child's particular needs.

The goal of therapy is for children to get back on a healthy course. Successful

Child Therapy improves the lives of children and their parents.  Adolescents

require a more collaborative approach.  Finding a balance between independence

and still respecting and allowing parental guidance.  


Adult/Couples Therapy

Re-Kindling yourself


Everyone at sometime in their life asks the most basic of questions: why

am I here, what is my purpose? Individual Therapy helps people to define

or re-define their lives. Successful Individual Therapy leaves people with

a feeling of purpose and worth.

When relationships are in trouble people begin to question themselves and

their partners. They often ask, "Are we meant to be together, can we be

happy?" Whether a relationship is ending or trying to re-kindle, Couples

Therapy can help to resolve these and other questions. Couples Therapy

can help each client to come to terms with the future as well as the past.

Group Therapy

Gaining support/Comfort in numbers


Group Therapy (GT) is perhaps the most misunderstood form of psychotherapy.

Group Therapy brings people together in an atmosphere of safety, which

creates a place of comfort and support. Effective Group Therapy leads to

self-growth, improved interpersonal skills, and most importantly leads to

feeling connected to not only the group, but to the community. Group

Therapy provides the opportunity for experiencing kind feedback, which can

lead to an improved self-image and greater confidence.

Group Therapy Can:

  • Lead to Improving Personal Relationship
  • Provide a Safe Testing Ground to Express Thoughts and Feelings 
  • Encourage New Behaviors
  • Become a Springboard for Positive Changes
