About

During these difficult times, I will help you develop skills to tackle daily stressors, learn ways to cope with anxiety, depression or hardships of everyday life, and set personal goals and begin to achieve them. I'm passionate about helping individuals find their voice, become more assertive, increase self-esteem, and find their path in order to  start working on their life goals
I also work with adolescents. Allow me to help your child manage daily stressors, anxiety, and increase self-esteem in order to survive this difficult period. adolescent years are like navigating through a minefield. A child that's never experienced problems at school may begin to struggle academically/behaviorally.
I am eager to provide you with compassionate support as you explore and express current struggles, expand your awareness of internal and external obstacles, and I will support you as you pave the way towards deep and lasting change. Take a look at www.asfcounseling.com for more information.
