Adolescent Counseling and Group Counseling
For adolescents my primary goal is to help your teen to feel understood. I strive to increase your teen’s ability to communicate their feelings during a time when it is especially challenging to do so. The teenage years are very difficult. Your child is growing up in a fast paced world where there are academic and social pressures. Social media makes the teen age years more complex. Children are dealing with issues that add to their feelings of anxiety, depression and loneliness. As a result social media impacts family time and makes it difficult for many parents to enforce boundaries surrounding electronics.
Additionally, because of my experience working in schools, I can help your teen navigate issues that come up with peers and teachers.
Parenting is hard. No one gave you a handbook that outlines what you should be doing with your child.
- Are you tired of saying the same thing over and over and getting nowhere?
- Is your child or teen acting out or not talking to you like they use to?
- Do you want to stop screaming and learn how to listen with an open heart?
This is where I can help. I use The Nurtured Heart Approach® which helps you develop deeper and richer relationships with your children. It’s parenting from the heart. Here is a brief video which explains the outcomes of using the NHA.
Additionally, since I’ve been working with parents and their children for over 15 years in a school setting, I can help you navigate issues your child is having with school. Finally, I’m here to support you in your journey with your children and with life in general.
Adult Counseling and Life Coaching
Making a decision to find the right person to talk to can be difficult. Many of us grow up in families or cultures that advise us to suffer in silence, or to deal with problems on our own. Sometimes, it is easy to get caught up in our lives and we take on more than we can handle. It’s easy to get involved in relationships that are toxic without knowing how we got into them, and get stuck in our careers or place in life because we lose hope or don't see a brighter side. Usually problems don't come in order, they all tap in at once. All of these issues inhibit and weigh in how we see ourselves, how we interact with others, friends, family, and our performance at work.
As a counselor and life coach, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential, dissolve what is holding you back, help you to identify and explore your greatness. I use a multi-modal approach to get to the root of understanding the problems and transforming the issues that stand in your way from achieving your goals and a true understanding of who you are so you can begin to live authentically. At some point in everyone's life we all need an objective non-judgmental listener to help us sort out or problems in confidentiality.
