I want to thank you for considering Lakeside Family Center as a place for you and your family to receive services. I opened Lakeside Family Center in 2010 with the goal in mind to provide quality counseling services to families in this community. We have a great team of providers here at Lakeside Family Center!
"I hold a strong belief that each client I work with is the expert on their own lives. I love helping my clients become aware of their own ability to work through difficult experiences. I feel joy when a client trusts me with their greatest pain and I can provide a respite, if only for a brief while. I want my clients to know how to dance in the rain, rather than feel the gloom and miss the beauty that the rain produces."
"I want to work with individuals and families to help them communicate with each other and learn to support each other. I help clients identify triggers and coping skills to manage their anxiety and depression. I believe that every once in a while we can get overwhelmed by circumstances in our lives. Sometimes we just need to talk it out with someone who is a good listener and supportive as we walk through our circumstances. I can give you a place to find your way through difficulties in a safe and non-judgmental environment."
"I am proud to be surrounded by professionals that take helping seriously. Empathy is not just a word, but a modality. Assisting people towards a happier, more consistent and confident person is the impact of our mission. Whether you are at the beginning, middle or the end of your rope, you have options. Let's take the time, and do something with it!"
"As a licensed professional counselor, I understand the importance of creating a welcoming, safe, and non-judgmental environment for my clients. I enjoy working alongside children, adolescents, and young adults, helping identify personal strengths that serve as a foundation for building skills and resolving problems. My goal is to encourage my clients to explore and deepen their understanding on the issues most affecting their lives, developing the tools to overcome many obstacles or situations. I believe all individuals deserve to live life to its fullest potential!"
"As a therapist different counseling approaches are beneficial. My personal approach utilizes empowering, motivational, person-centered, down-to-earth and non-judgmental. I have worked in various settings including non-profit, residential group home, substance abuse treatment centers, and methadone clinics."
"Reaching out for help can seem daunting, so it is my priority to provide a safe, comfortable environment for your therapy experience. My approach is open & non-judgmental, seeking to collaborate with you in building on the strengths you already possess. Motivational Enhancement and Strengths-Based counseling are my main modalities in working with clients. My specialties are depression, anxiety, coping with stress, life transitions, working parent issues, and substance use disorders. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor & Master Addictions Counselor.
I believe that having an impartial person to share your thoughts, feelings, hopes and wishes with can help you lead a more authentic, fulfilling life."
"My focus is client-centered and I believe that the client will lead us to their desired location if we just listen. While my specialty is dealing with clients that have had issues with drugs and alcohol in the past, my focus is more often on the client’s root causes and conditions that led them to using these coping mechanisms."
"Everything you need to make life what you want it to be is already in you. I always start with a person-centered approach, but once I know you and your unique needs, I can help you improve your life. I am DBT-informed and can help you discover why self-love and interpersonal relationships have always been struggles for you. I am experienced in LGBTQ+ issues, as well as working with children and grief. As a person who has struggled with depression and anxiety, I can provide empathy, understanding, and coping skills to help free yourself from their grasps on your life. Knowing you need help in making life work for YOU is the first step to becoming the BEST you."
"Over the years, I have gained experience working with all ages. I have served at a domestic violence shelter, child advocacy center, in the school system, foster care, and in home family counseling. My passion is helping clients to gain greater awareness and acceptance of themselves, find ways to take care of themselves, learn to communicate in healthy ways, and overcome their past and current struggles."
"I would like to invite you to take the next step in learning about yourself on a deeper level. You are worthy of your love and compassion! I also believe that you are the expert of your life experiences, and I would be honored to walk beside you to make sense of things. Together, we can help find you the tools, support and internal strength you need to live the emotional, mental and physical life you deserve. As a trauma-informed therapist, I offer compassionate, non-judgmental, and strength-based individual or family evidence-based therapy. I practice from a humanistic/person-centered approach that includes interventions utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Approach, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Relapse Prevention, as appropriate."
"When we’re struggling, reaching out for help can be difficult. Sometimes, though, we need a safe place to pause life, clean, understand, and heal our wounds, and head back out again, armed with new strategies and ideas to overcome a challenge. I hope to be that respite for you. I utilize a variety of evidence-based models to help my clients see their worth as human beings, grow as “authors,” and redefine their relationships with themselves and others. I love helping clients see the resources they have, and learn to use their own power to reshape their problems and their lives."
