Is your child having behavioral challenges at home or school? Is your child having a hard time adjusting to a new school or relocation? Are you or your child having cultural or racial identity issues? Do you think your child has low self-esteem or is depressed? Do you feel your relationship and communication with your family need to improve? Is your child having a hard time adjusting to a stepparent, divorce or separation, or other change(s) in their life? Are you having difficulties or challenges with parenting or agreeing with parenting techniques with your spouse or partner? Do you feel your child or teenager's behavior is tearing your family apart? Are you struggling with depression or motherhood stress?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. You and/or your child may benefit from therapy from The Journey Counseling Services, LLC. I have been helping families like you for over 10 years. I help rebuild and reunify families by teaching coping skills and better communication skills to children ages 3-18 and families. I help children, adolescents, and adults learn how to understand, control, and share their emotions appropriately, as well as make better choices. I can assist parents in developing strategies to help your child manage emotions,
improve behavior at home and school, and help families get along better. I also use play therapy with children and adolescents who have a hard time appropriately expressing themselves and talking to people about what is troubling them.
  "Rebuild and reunify families by teaching coping skills and better communication skills to children ages 3-18 and families"

I am eclectic in my approach, using play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and many different therapeutic interventions to meet the needs of our clients. I provide clients with a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment, to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings.

I also specialize in working with children and adolescents with behavioral challenges, as well as, parenting support and training. I am also trained in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I am
passionate about helping people with racial, ethnic, and cultural identity issues. I meet my clients where they are and provide support for developing a new way of seeing and moving through life.
  It is my belief that all individuals possess the ability to solve their own challenges and live full and healthy lives when support is available. My goal, as a therapist, is to create a supportive environment, in which my clients can explore their emotional needs and overcome barriers that limit their full potential. I take an open-minded approach to client wellness and consider the client's work life, family traditions, cultural, and spiritual beliefs. I offer therapy for children, adolescents, adults, and families.

We all, sometimes, struggle with day-to- day life and experience difficult challenges. With my
effort, commitment, and support, I will assist you with coping with life's journey.

  Play Therapy

Sometimes, children and adolescents have a hard time appropriately expressing themselves and talking to people about what is troubling them.  I use play therapy to assist with this process.  Play therapy teaches children more adaptive skills, when there are emotional or social problems.

Once a child/adolescent has worked through their problems through play, then I am able to help find solutions to address their problems in life.

  Child & Adolescent Therapy

Children can face a range of difficult problems in their lives that might include sadness, anxiety, academic stress, sexual or other risk-taking, aggression towards peers or family members, truancy, family conflicts, and more. They need to learn how to understand, control, and share their emotions appropriately.

They also may struggle to control their behavior and meet the expectations of their parents and teachers.
I can help children work through these issues and make better choices in their lives.

         
 

Individual Adult Therapy

I assist clients in finding their own pace, while also creating a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment, to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings. I help clients explore their past in order to create a more empowered future. In doing so, I help clients to understand and break destructive patterns in their lives and to achieve and maintain well-being and balance. 

Individual therapy can be used as a tool to improve your life, your relationships, and/or your family.  I meet my clients where they are and provide support for developing a new way of seeing and moving through life.

 

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy, helps couples, married or not, understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship.  Couples therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve, and even argue in a healthier way. 

Illness, infidelity, sex, anger, and communication problems can contribute to distress in marriages, couples, or other relationships. Marriage counseling or couples counseling can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds.

         
   

Parenting Support/Training

I teach practical, easy to implement parenting strategies to help your child manage emotions, improve behavior at home and school, and help families get along better.

The parenting support/training I provide empowers parents in a positive and encouraging way, while assisting parents in learning how to deal with the challenges of parenthood.

 

Family Therapy

Family dynamics can often be challenging, whether you have a traditional or non-traditional family.  Sessions will use a mixture of parent sessions and family sessions to comprehensively address challenges, solutions, and what positive changes you would like to make.
