Being a teenager is full of twists and turns. As a teen, your feelings of frustration and overwhelm can be the result of all the expectations placed on you. Pleasing parents and teachers, maintaining friendships, figuring out your identity, and dealing with peer pressures and bullying make it a difficult time in a teen’s life. It can seem like we’re alone in this and that others don’t understand. I would be honored to work along-side you and support you through this time. My own struggles as a teenager help me relate. I want to create space for teens to feel heard and understood.
Many adults find themselves feeling frustrated, anxious, depressed and overwhelmed. Maybe you’re starting to wonder what is contributing to this experience and what can be done.

Caring for these past wounds can help move you in a healthy direction with your life. I believe that for healing to take place it must occur in our mind, body, and emotional world. Our work together will address unhelpful thoughts, regulating your nervous system through mindful awareness of your environment and body, and gaining insight on the patterns in your life that are holding you back.

In addition to the usual challenges of daily life, your regular routines can be that much more difficult. Navigating this experience can feel isolating and overwhelming at times. You are not alone.

Having a disability offers a unique opportunity to develop skills such as flexibility, creative thinking, problem solving and practice with advocating for your needs.
