I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 5 years of experience counseling teens 13-19. My former work experience includes being a school counselor in local public, Jewish, and Christian schools. I have counseled teens in home for a local non-profit assisting clients to reduce non-preferred behaviors and get back to living in healthier relationships again.
My past students have run the spectrum from straight A students, students of various intellectual and physical abilities, perfectionists, stress/anxiety, multicultural concerns, grief/loss of a loved one, relationship issues, anger management, self-esteem, self-harm, lack of impulse control, general education students, special education students, ADHD/ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger’s, Emotional disturbances, and learning disabilities.
One of my passions is helping teens and young adults find their future occupation, research colleges, and find careers that are the best fit for them.
My mission is to help others find joy again, heal, and experience life at much higher and happier level. In counseling we can discuss life from a faith-based viewpoint (I am a practicing Christian) or a non religious view, your choice. I look forward to meeting and helping you!
