Life circumstances can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed and lost, but my goal is to empower people with the confidence to face the challenges that are negatively impacting their lives. Starting on the path to counseling can be a challenging step to take, but choosing an authentic and encouraging therapist is an important first step. My clients, just as I do, put a high value on developing a relationship that is built on trust, authenticity, and empowerment. Through quality therapy sessions, a person’s character, spirit, and personal strength are my focus as we work together for life-changing results.

It happened again. The hint of sarcasm. The blatant disrespect. “Why do I put up with this?” you ask yourself over and over. When it happens, your mind is screaming on the inside, yet there you stand. Frozen. Most of the time with a smile on your face. You may as well be invisible. They don’t see the hard work, the anxiety, the struggle, the loneliness. Often you don’t notice it either as you stay so incredibly busy…except for on those days when there may as well be an elephant standing on your chest. It’s heavy, and you couldn’t move if you wanted to. The nagging voice inside blames it all on you. Worst of all you believe it.

During a first session, clients often comment how easy it is to talk to me. My priority is for you to get something out of our time together that impacts your daily life. This includes, but is not limited to: increased sense of security and self esteem; a more clear vision about your life (past, present, future); decreased symptoms related to anxiety/depression and past trauma; and an awareness of and influence over destructive patterns in your life. And for those seeking relationship counseling: better communication and renewed intimacy with your partner or spouse leading to enhanced satisfaction in family life.

There are times in our lives when we need help. Life experiences require us to make the decision to seek guidance from outside our immediate family and friends. Counseling can provide much needed support and intervention in times of crises or with chronic issues that last a lifetime. Don't consider it a weakness but a strength to take that step to be the best possible individual or family you can be.
