Teens & Young Adults


“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
– Aristotle

In providing clinical counseling services for two different college counseling centers during my career, I’m well acquainted with the distinct challenges of this population and remain committed to constantly developing new strategies for optimal efficacy for our young people in an ever-changing world.

I have extensive experience providing clinical counseling, workshop trainings and classroom instruction with teens and young adults, including traditional undergraduate college students, and I’ve also enjoyed working with graduate and professional school students and working adults. As a therapist serving as Associate Director of Counseling Services for Benedictine College and an adjunct instructor for Johnson County Community College, I am inspired and renewed as I help young adults navigate courageously through some incredibly difficult tasks.

Young adult college students experience all of the same sorts of struggles older adults experience but with limited life experiences, sometimes their resilience when they stumble is especially challenged. Serving the traditional college-age population remains a special passion! Providing clinical counseling services for two different college counseling centers during my career, I’m well acquainted with the distinct challenges of this population and remain committed to constantly developing new strategies for optimal efficacy for our young people in an ever-changing world.

I enjoy creating new programs and delivering these seminars to students. I also founded and continue to supervise a peer support program in which I teach college students how to effectively encounter and support peers who’re struggling.

In addition to addressing common mental illness, like depression and anxiety, and relationship challenges, I’ve also developed programs on cultivating resilience, learning how to apply basic CBT principles, mindful eating, time management, fear of failure, and many other common concerns for which teens and young adults want solid lifehack training.
