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!

Although women can be incredibly different, there is one common denominator we share when it comes to what we desire from a partner…A sense of connection. The meaning of connection tends to be subjective when examining relationships. A disconnection many times is labeled as a “gut feeling” by women explaining, “something is just not right”. […]
Disclaimer: As I stated at the beginning of my last article, Navigating the ‘Damned If I Do, Damned If I Don’t’ Dilemma: A Look at Men’s Perspectives… Before I am criticized, judged, blamed, or labeled a man hater, I want to be clear that I do not hate men. Before I seemingly sound as if […]
I continue to hear a common statement from the men I see in my private practice. I feel it is a universal statement (feeling) many men share, or at least, understand. “I am damned if I do and damned if I don’t”. Disclaimer: Before I am criticized, judged, blamed, or labeled a man hater, I […]
My previous article deals with Understanding the ‘Mean Girl’ Mentality. But, what do you do when it is YOUR child that is the mean girl? Yes, your darling daughter can be the one who is mean. Girls hurt girls. Mean girls dig deep into another girl’s soul as if they are ripping it out with their […]
Girls hurt girls. Mean girls dig deep into another girl’s soul as if they are ripping it out with their bare hands, smiling and gathering up the troops to observe the pain and misery they proudly wear as a badge of honor. Sadly, I have heard way too many stories from little girls, teen girls, […]
In my previous article, Relationships and Toxic Behaviors, we address how to identify, recognize and own unhealthy behaviors in our relationship which is essential for creating a healthier, happier, and more nurturing partnership. These behaviors will significantly harm or destroy the dynamics of the relationship. Repairing toxic patterns in relationships is possible with dedication, open communication, […]
Most of us have experienced it… found ourselves in the same negative and toxic behaviors in our relationship… seemingly repeating themselves over and over again. These behaviors will significantly harm or destroy the dynamics of the relationship. Can you relate? Identifying, recognizing, and owning these behaviors is crucial for changing and improving the relationship. Take […]
I use art therapy as a powerful and effective way to explore and express feelings of disappointment. Through the creative process, individuals can externalize their emotions, gain insights, and begin a journey to find peace and find healing. Kids and adults can create art to show how they feel without having to put their feelings […]
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.
