I am a firm believer that any given moment you have the power to say “this is not how my story is going to end.”

But I didn’t always feel this way. When I was teenager I was what some might call pessimistic. I suffered from depression, struggled with family issues, and my school advisor told me I would never amount to anything.

I chose to take control of my story and so can you!

I can help! My best work is with teens who are depressed, angry, suicidal, self-injurious, and/or anxious who think they aren’t enough.  I help them develop skills to stop their inner critic and self-destructive behaviors so they can accept themselves the way they are.  I know it is hard to be vulnerable and sit with uncomfortable feelings, but they only get stronger the longer we ignore them.

My Training and Approach

Lianna_ghost I started my private practice so teens could have a place where they could just be themselves, feel accepted, without fear of judgement; A place where they could realize they aren’t alone.

My passion is to help your teen feel worthy; to know, accept, and love the messy, imperfect, flawed and completely amazing person they are.

You can rewrite your narrative. Your past does not have to dictate your future!
