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!

Merriam-Webster says ‘gaslighting’ is the word of the year. Searches for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740% in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened. There wasn’t a single event that drove significant spikes in the curiosity, as it usually goes with the chosen word of the year. The gaslighting was pervasive. Gaslighting […]
I’m often encouraging my patients this time of year to drop the concept of new year resolutions because…well… they just don’t work. Instead, we talk about setting a personal theme for the new year in an area where you would like to grow and develop. First, let’s dive into four reasons why new year resolutions […]
For many of my patients, the holidays are not a joyous time of year. Instead, it brings an overwhelming sense of loss. Triggers hit hard when memories of those we’ve lost come rushing back. Grief is complicated. We want to feel excited and happy preparing for family gatherings, shopping for gifts and baking those traditional […]
You have an inner child. I have an inner child. We all do. Your “inner child” is a part of your subconscious that has been picking up messages way before it was able to fully process what was going on (mentally and emotionally). It holds emotions, memories and beliefs from the past as well as […]
I don’t know who I am other than mom. Even when I have the time and can do whatever I want, I don’t know what I like to do anymore. I feel invisible. I only feel valued for the things I do for others. I have nothing to talk about aside from my kids. I have lost […]
I have had way too much education on kids who have sent sexual pictures on snap chat. Where have I gained my education? Teenagers. Teenagers who have been “caught” by a parent or teens that have sent a photo only to find out this picture went viral and most of the boys at school have […]
How many times a week do you find yourself asking your teen to put away their phone? And how many times do they totally ignore you because they’re engulfed in their phone? Sound familiars? You and millions of others frustrated parents. You may be surprised to learn that today’s teenagers check their phones on average […]
Cell phones allow opportunities for teens to have private conversations with anyone at any time, without accountability or adult oversight. Because of this, conversations and text messaging can easily become inappropriate. In addition to conversation concerns, most cellphones are equipped with features, such as a camera, where teens can store digital pictures. Inappropriate pictures of […]
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.
