Salt & Shore Counseling 


Welcome to Salt & Shore.

Our mission is rooted in our name: Salt to symbolize groundedness; shore to symbolize purpose. We are called to be like salt of the earth, and row to shore to find our purpose. This is the call that all humans share in common. 

If this is what we believe, then it calls to reason that this is where we believe therapy must begin. Every child, teen, and young adult deserves to know the feeling of true attachment; to give and receive the feeling of being known. Grounded in purposediscovered through relationship. 



Reach out or explore the site to discover more about the mission of Salt and Shore, and to see if you would like to begin the wonderful adventure of therapy.

Have you or a child you care for lost sight of their purpose in life?

​Kids and young adults are asked to handle a lot, and they don't always have the tools to face adversity. Here are some of the issues I work with: 


  • ADHD

  • ODD

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Behavioral concerns

  • Grief & Loss

  • attachment 

  • divorce & family transitions

  • autism

  • social skills

  • sibling relationships

Counseling is for everyone, but it is important that you find the right person whom you feel comfortable with for it to work.

This relationship is what matters most!

Please reach out if you are even considering beginning the counseling journey for yourself or for your child, or if you have question. I can't wait to hear from you!
