Specializing In Helping Children, Adolescents, Couples & Families
FIND FREEDOM, ACCEPTANCE AND JOY
Everyone has something. Every family has something – something we struggle with, hoping it will magically disappear, fix itself, or that we can throw away.
We try stuffing away feelings of frustration, anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness, disappointment, fear, regret, or shame… Until they resurface again.
No matter what you or your family’s “something” is, identification and acknowledgement is the first step in beginning a personalized journey of discovery, understanding, awareness, and lastly, acceptance.
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Whether I am working with frantic parents of a newborn, a toddler who has elected himself boss of the home, a child who has continues to disobey at school, an adolescent believing his parents are stupid, a broken-hearted college girl, a couple dealing with infidelity, or a family who has experienced the death of a child, I make a practice to meet my patients where they are emotionally.
I want each person I work with to know they do have a voice, and by becoming accountable, they can change their lives for the better.
Our Unique Approach
My patients describe me as having an “out-of-the-box” approach with kids as well as adults. My office is purposefully designed to not be the typical clinical setting. Having no desire for a standard office setting, I created instead an atmosphere of uniqueness, comfort, and safety.
My support team includes a 39-pound Sulcata Tortoise, our Golden Retriever therapy dog and chicks!

People who live with an attitude of gratitude are known to live longer, sleep better, and have […]
Holidays represent family to most people. Although individuals report looking forward to seeing family members, there can be a sense of dread associated with some family gatherings. Although Christmas can be joyful, warm and fuzzy, there are many people who anticipate an upcoming meltdown, argument, or some sort of drama when it comes to family […]
The holidays don’t always represent festive positive fun times to everyone. The holidays can be stressful for several reasons, triggering past feelings, events, or negative circumstances. Shopping, social events, obligations, eating habits, debt, and other pressures can lead to anxiety. Missing loved ones and recalling negative events from the past (generally family) are the two […]
Discussions with your children about the real Santa Claus…especially when they begin asking questions. My precious 10-year-old grandson may be appeasing me regarding his belief in Santa Claus. He still buys into the Santa Claus deal or he is pretending he does for me. We began what now is a tradition between the two of […]
For many children, the holiday season is a time of blissful joy filled with delicious food and candy, parties, Christmas events, lots of play, screen time, new devices, and lots of toys. Giving back to the others and the community enables kids to take ownership in their own behaviors offering someone happiness. Ideas for children […]

Thank you, thank you!! Becky (and the pets) was very helpful when I struggled with a loss and then when life happened…a few times. 🙂 Also, when I had some health challenges. Professional, friendly, caring, knowledgable, helpful and human!! The most “real” counselor I’ve seen.
Becky has absolutely changed my life. She is such a blessing. I honestly have never been so welcomed and comfortable with anybody! She is such a kind soul and will make a great impact on your life.
