Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Do you ever feel lonely, even though you are surrounded by people? Maybe you are in a relationship and yet you feel that you are all by yourself. The pain and feeling of isolation can be a devastating one. It is a feeling that can affect every aspect of your life. Are you a mom or dad that is frustrated because you feel a lack of connection with your teen? Struggling to communicate with them and worried that they are heading down the wrong path? Does your teen seem angry and you don't know why or what to do about it? This can cause extreme worry and frustration. Seeing behaviors that concern us in our teen can evoke a strong sense of fear in each parent.
You don't have to navigate through feelings of loneliness by yourself. I find it my mission and my passion to walk beside individuals and couples to help not only find themselves, but to re-discover each other again. I have worked with teenagers, couples and families for over 19 years. I want to help bridge the gap between you and your teen or between you and your partner by helping you better understand how to connect and effectively communicate.
I know how my clients feel. I am a wife and a mother of 7. I understand the challenges of balancing a relationship and a career. The fine line between feeling connected and feeling isolated. As a mom of 7 I have experienced the teenage years first hand and all the challenges that go along with it. We are also a blended family and so I know the feelings and thoughts that one has when they just want to "get it right". I encourage you to reach out, schedule an appointment, and let me partner with you. You don't have to figure things out by yourself. You don't have to do life alone.
