About

Many of my clients come from small towns and rural areas. These types of locations provide their own unique sets of challenges and opportunity for chronicity. Often isolation is either desired or consequential to these locations. A healthy support system is essential for growth and healing in every aspect of life; mental, social, spiritual and physical. Therapeutic support is often the first step in seeking a healthy support system and is my privilege to provide.
Utilizing client-centered focus is essential in counseling. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a very resourceful and empirically based approach to helping many types of issues, for example; anxiety, depression, negative self-view and inability to change negative thoughts and feelings. Attachment to others and Family systems are also dynamics to explore.
Most importantly, you are not alone. Whether you view your struggle as minor or serious, acute or chronic, I am here to help you regain self-worth, healthy relationships and a joy for life. There are enough 'macro' challenges in the world today that are easy for us to get caught up in and deplete our energy and resilience. Let's find 'you' again!
