This is it! This is the moment: the moment you take a hard look at where you are and make a conscious decision to take charge of where you are headed. Much too often in life we get so bogged down with the mundane tasks of day to day life that we forget to live in a way that illustrates what we value most. If you are a teen or young adult, you may have limited insight into who you are becoming and how to develop your true self. You are not alone!  I have worked with adolescents and young adults who struggled with these same issues. By applying skills and techniques of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness, many learned to look at the challenges in their lives as opportunities for reflection and growth. You can do the same.

Are you dealing with symptoms of anxiety or depression?  Maybe you are going through a transition or have concerns surrounding school or family. Perhaps you are grieving the loss of a loved one or maybe you simply feel lost and need help finding your way. Regardless of your current situation, change is possible. If you are ready and willing, I am here to listen to you and stand with you as you learn to navigate the course to your own true self. Connecting with me to assist you on this journey is only the first step. I encourage you and support you in your decision to take it.

“Not everything that is faced can be changed but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
