"Caring and strength-based counseling allows families, kids, and parents to rediscover old strengths, learn and develop new ones, all of which make it possible to walk a different path, away from problems and towards new pleasures. I can help you experience greater mastery and back in control of your life. We can handle a lot, but sometimes one extra stressor or life-changing incident throws us off balance. Then we feel anger, anxiety, and/or depression. Adding insult to injury, these negative emotions further stress us out, making it harder to find solutions and regain our balance in life."

"Generally, each person and I begin by exploring the issues that has brought them to seek out my services. This exploration entails a joint effort that unfolds over time. A relationship is formed that helps us both to see more clearly how the individual is operating in their everyday life. It is through such an exploration that the individual begins to understand themselves, and, especially, their more intimate relating. I also believe that the person leads the treatment such that we will only go as far as each person desires. I can offer ideas, but, in the end, it is the individual who leads us."
