It takes courage to admit that something in your life is not what you hoped it would be. You want things to be different and wonder if change is possible. If you are ready to create better emotional balance and engage in healthier relationships, ready to feel more motivated to move forward in your life, and ready to be confident and present so you experience the happiness you desire, then change is possible.

"How do I choose a counselor?" First of all, find someone who loves what they do. It's a good sign if they have therapy books on their bed tables. What works fine for one person may fail for the next, so look for a counselor who is flexible. Very flexible. Also, a sense of humor really helps. Look for someone who is non-judgmental. You want to be able to tell your counselor anything, even the dark, painful, or embarrassing stuff, and be sure that they will still be there for you and with you. Finally, make sure that they believe that people can change, even if change has failed in the past, and that there is always hope.

Each of us have the capacity to reach our fullest potentials. However, we often find ourselves stuck in negative patterns of thinking and being, unable to see other possibilities. Therapy allows us as individuals and family units to create meaning out of the various life experiences that we have encountered and can help to open up new ways of thinking, feeling, and being. I provide individual and family counseling in a comfortable and confidential setting. I treat those who experience issues related to trauma, anger management, self-injury, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, identity issues, and self-esteem challenges.

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change."- Jim Rohn. People seek counseling when their emotional pain becomes too much to bear on their own and they want to be free of it. How we deal with life's pain defines who we are. While we don't choose to undergo misfortune, we do decide how we react to those events. I have found that negative experiences can also trigger something positive within us. Crisis offers opportunity for change, and pain can be the catalyst for transformation.

These roadblocks can be as straightforward as learning how to manage anxiety or depression, or as complex as figuring out how to thrive or survive in an important relationship that's currently under stress. While many clients seek help with specific problems such as parenting, maneuvering workplace dynamics, or getting through specific crises, others are trying to find ways to overcome personal hurdles and take the next steps in moving their lives beyond their own self-perceived limitations. Whatever the concern, we tackle it together and develop a plan.
