Working with me
I have spent nine years working in school settings with children and adolescents from very diverse backgrounds. I intentionally provide a safe space for them to discuss their challenges and help highly sensitive individuals adjust and cope to a sometimes chaotic-feeling school environment.
Ever since we emerged from the COVID quarantine, I've seen a tremendous shift in family dynamics. As I help my clients adjust to these changes, I pay special attention to what is going on around and within the client. This is important for our adolescents - especially those in the LGBTQ+ community - as they desperately need a safe place to openly question and discuss their identity.
We all need a safe place to face our fears and take that next step into positive change and personal growth. When you're ready to do so, I would be delighted to embark on that journey with you.
