Relationship Counseling
Couples/Marriage
Even those relationships that are the most rewarding require attentiveness and what I call “work.” Couple’s therapy is for ALL types of couples and will address those ongoing arguments, circular patterns of behaviors as well as discovery to rebuild and reconnect your relationship.
Counseling for Parents and Families
Parenting
There is a reason they say it takes a village. Whether you are a single parent, co-parenting post divorce, blended families or brand new parents I’m here to help you understand the challenges and move forward in a way that is healthy and positive for your family.
Children, Tweens and Teen Counseling
Children & Teens
The challenges of today's kids are very different from when you and I grew up. I specialize in helping kids develop the coping skills needed to navigate their world better. Depending on the age of your child(ren) will determine the process and goals for treatment.
I want you to know that you are not alone, and there is hope for healing, living and learning to love again.

It's important to acknowledge that what you went through was not your fault. Narcissistic abuse is a manipulative and controlling behavior that can deeply affect your self-esteem and overall well-being. Healing takes time, and it's okay to have ups and downs along the way. Engage in activities that bring you joy and help you reconnect with your passions and interests. Each step forward no matter how big or small is a victory towards reclaiming your life.

Lastly, remember that you are a survivor, you are a badass and your strength and resilience will carry you through this journey.

    teletherapy

    Teletherapy, video or phone counseling is the use of technology for remote mental health care.  It is an alternative to traditional office appointments to help ease the burden of our fast paced world.  Teletherapy helps to meet the needs of those clients who are unable to schedule appointments in the office. 

    Here are some teletherapy benefits: 

    • offers more flexibility in your schedule 
    • allows you to be in the privacy of  your own home or office
    •  reduces the commuting time
    • offers access for college students or frequent business travelers 
    • communication is streamlined as appointments are scheduled online and sent to calendars digitally (just takes human error out of scheduling) 
    • improves timeliness for all as we log in from our desks 
    • also used in conjunction with office appointments, alternating appointments in and out of the office.
