Strengths-based therapy with a healthy dose of humor

Congratulations on taking the first step to enhance your mental wellness - that takes courage! I am welcoming clients to my practice who are ready for radically honest, respectful, strengths-based, and humor-infused psychotherapy designed for the modern age. My ideal client is curious about how life could be different, brave enough to take those first steps, and open to trying new life strategies! My Specialties: * Adolescent and young adult mental health (ages 13-25): anxiety, stress, depression, self-harm behaviors, gender and sexuality exploration. * Parents and parent/child relationships: we are parenting a new age of tech-connected teens without a road map, right? If you're feeling disconnected from your child, you're not alone! * Life Transitions for clients of any age: examples include welcoming a new baby, marriage, divorce, career change, retirement, moving, re-acclimating to civilian life after military * Caregiver and "Support for the Supporter": Is your loved one a trauma survivor? Do you care for someone with a long-term illness or disability? Loving someone with a past trauma means sometimes overlooking your own needs to prioritize the needs of someone you love, which is not easy. If you love someone with a trauma history - YOU deserve support, too! If I sound like a good therapist fit for you, I would be honored to hear your story, and can't wait to hear from you.
