Why Empowerment Counseling?

Empowerment Counseling provides tween, teen, and college-age girls with a safe avenue to air their worries, define their feelings, ask questions, and develop new life skills without judgement.  Our work together will focus on skill and confidence building, NOT labels and stigma.

I believe...

  • All girls can benefit from support and empowerment as they learn to manage everyday life challenges.
  • Being proactive and preventive is key to healthy and happy development.
  • Every girl deserves to feel strong, confident, and comfortable in her own skin.
  • Having someone neutral to talk to can make all the difference!

My role is to guide, coach, and empower girls to build their self-esteem and confidence so that they can make healthy life choices.

Counseling Topics Include:

  • School stress & academic performance
  • Transitioning to high school or college
  • Organization & time-management
  • Enhancing relationships with parents and siblings
  • Building resiliency and healthy coping skills
  • Managing emotions
  • Respect for self and others
  • Developing positive self-esteem
  • Improving body-image
  • Healthy dating (break-ups, choices, respect, etc.)
  • Friendship challenges and "fitting in"
  • Dealing with bullies and drama
  • Exploring identity
  • College life (roommates, classes, and independence)
  • Employment (first job, bosses, and co-workers)
  • Goal setting and future planning
