It is a privilege to help others who are seeking support on their journey. As a licensed psychologist who enjoys working with adults, children, families, couples, as well as groups, I appreciate a holistic approach to lifestyle changes. It is important to consider physical, mental and emotional health to increase our quality of life. We don’t have control over some circumstances in life, but we can work to optimally navigate what comes our way. Cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, mindfulness for stress reduction, managing occupational strain and psychoeducation are some of the techniques I find helpful. My experience includes 15+ years of work with research, children (including the foster care and school system), parents, families, adults, severe mental health needs, substance abuse, crisis intervention, couples, group facilitation, psychoeducation, assessment, and occupational stress. I take pleasure in my work at Family and Child Counseling Center. Seeking support can be hard and take extra energy but maybe start with an email. Maybe that is easier. We often figure out how to find energy for work, family and/or friends. Why not commit to finding energy to nurture yourself? If not you, then who?
