"Life without change is not living; To be uncomfortable means that change is right around the corner!" I believe these words wholeheartedly as every individual arrives at a crossroads that determine whether they move forward, backward or remain stagnant. I work alongside those who may be within a crossroad - whether at home or in school, or even in social situations - that has them questioning which direction to choose. In my work as a Therapist, my clinical training and experience encompasses depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidality, organizational skills, grief/loss, relationship issues, and other emotional/interpersonal disturbances facing teens today. I specialize in trauma such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, and/or bullying.
As an Adolescent Therapist, I subscribe to a strength based theories, Reality therapy, Cognitive Behavioral and Gestalt therapy, believing in the importance and connection of choice, empowerment, thinking and feeling for creating long-lasting change within individuals and their varying "parts of self".
Through exploring your sense of meaning and empowering your "choices", I can help you gain the ability to achieve personal growth, autonomy, improved relationships, regulated emotions, increased self-esteem, clarified self-identity, coping skills, increased communication and problem-solving skills, decreased anxiety and depression, improved lifestyle, and a deeper sense of self-worth.

Lemuel helped me get through a difficult life change. He helped me break down the problems and apply effective strategies to solve them. He is compassionate, supportive and his advice works.
Lemuel is very positive, super supportive and helped me trust my life's journey and the process! I know that now I believe in myself all good things follow - Things can and will get better! Just believe and be true to yourself! Thank you so much!
Lem has been a wonderful blessing to us! He makes the whole process fun. We have so appreciated his insight and examples on how to improve our communication. So lucky we got matched with him!
Lemuel was very attentive and had great suggestions for us to work on our family communication skills. We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again for sessions.
Lemuel has been super awesome so far! He responds to me whenever I need help and respects and cares about my issues. He’s helping me keep my mind straight through anxiety, relationship issues, and teaching me how to love myself again. He also has a great sense of humor and has been super relatable to me! Thank you!!!
Lemuel was exactly what I was after - he understood my priorities and worldview as a Christian, and with a calm and careful manner he helped me to work through some complex issues. I really appreciated his thoughtfulness, and the tasks he recommended have helped me a lot. I felt listened to and understood each time we spoke, and our conversations have helped bring a lot of healing and healthy habits of relationship into my day to day life.
He’s a really good listener and is able to interpret and anticipate all my needs and clears out my mind and helps me see what’s really important.
He is very positive, understanding, motivating, supportive and helpful! I would give him my recommendation.
Great guy. I’m in the middle of treatment but I’m learning a lot and having this has helped.
