Individuals

Individual counseling provides an opportunity for you to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Together, we can discuss your issues or concerns with:

•    
Anxiety & depression

•    Survivors of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse 

•    Loss and grief counseling

•    Self-development

•    Body image issues

•    Relationships 

•    Stress Management

•    Sexual orientation

Families

Family dynamics can often be challenging, whether you have a traditional or non-traditional family, we can help. Family counseling provides an opportunity for everyone to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Together, we can try to solve any familial issues:

•    Parent-child conflicts

•    Family communication problems

•    Defiant, angry, or isolated teens

•    Grief and issues of loss

•    Transitions after divorce or separation (and co-parenting counseling)



 
Couples

Couples counseling is beneficial to those interested in improving their relationships. I have experience with a diverse range of couples from various racial, ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds. Couples can be married or dating, straight or gay. I can assist couples with:

•    Communication

•    Financial disagreements

•    Infidelity

•    Trust issues

•    Premarital, Pre-commitment counseling
 

Adolescents & Teens 

Naturally this is part of the family or individual category, but the uniqueness of these years should not be ignored. Make certain that the therapist you choose has experience with this population. Young people that seek treatment can have very positive outcomes & have an opportunity to develop healthy behaviors and tools to last a lifetime. I'll just name a few here:

•    Academic struggles and stress

•    Troubled friend relations

•    Generalized anxiety 

•    Self-esteem and self-image

•    Developing healthy boundaries
