What is it you want to FIX? Where are you STUCK? What is it you don’t KNOW? Are you questioning your relationships, health, life satisfaction, or accomplishments? If you look "together" on the outside but feel different on the inside, you're not alone! Our culture demands we try to have it all, fit in, & focus on the positive. Yet guilt, self-doubt, anxiety, frustration, overwhelm, & feeling not good enough is SO common. Performing, producing, perfectionism, & people pleasing is SO exhausting. When this no longer works for you, it's time for a different approach. We'll work from the inside for your RESET!

I consider it a joy to work with couples, families, and individuals. It is an honor when people allow me to walk beside them in their journey. I believe that each person has great worth and their stories are as unique as snowflakes. Sitting with people in their distress gives me an unparalleled vantage point from which to watch the healing power of secure attachment in the lives of my clients. Relationships provide a safe harbor for our lives and when they are strained or broken, we feel real pain. My approach provides a proven path back to healthy relationships.

I enjoy working with individuals, couples or families who are ready to grow and change. In most areas of life today stress and conflict are rampant and can steal our joy making it difficult to see the good things in our life. Career stress, school pressures or even work related or childhood trauma is becoming more and more common in this country. These days it is easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged. It is my belief that most of us need to make it a priority to slow down, examine our life-current, past and future-in order to live with purpose and peace in the midst of a rapidly changing world.

"Over the past few years, the demand for mental health services has increased. The field of mental health, in efforts to meet this demand, has caused the technique of counseling to become commercialized. When I created Harris & Harris my mission was to create a business practice that was ethically driven to get back to the basics of counseling. Customer volume should never be a measurement of success within a business, but providing consistent quality service should always be a measurement standard."
