Message to Parents & Families

Our adolescent and young adult years can be some of the most difficult years, while at the same time being the most important and most defining in our lives.  Bombarded by countless messages from friends, family, teachers, coaches, and social media we struggle to answer the questions, “Who am I?” And… “What am I supposed to do with my life?”  

In addition to these BIG questions, life stressors can build up until your mind just cannot function like it ought to. Anxiety and depression can seep in, making our journey through school, work, and relationships much more difficult than they have to be. Counseling is the response to this overwhelming feeling and the key to taking control of your journey.

I provide a safe environment to process life’s twists and turns so that they can remain resilient and thrive.

Whether your a guy trying to figure out life or a couple needing premarital counseling, I’ll help you create a plan to answer the big life questions, to heal broken relationships, and nourish deep connections.
