For the latest in appointment availability and wait list times, take a moment and visit my website at www.guidingprinciplesllc.com. Guiding Principles Counseling Services was founded on the belief that people can change, and must tap into their inner strength and moral compass to guide them toward change. Here at Guiding Principles I foster a warm, comfortable, compassionate and nonjudgmental environment, where a client can begin to emotionally unpack his/her concerns, and leave with specific cognitive behavioral tools to utilize in their everyday lives.

Successful psychotherapy requires teamwork between the client and myself. I understand it is not an easy decision to seek help. I look forward to working with you to meet your therapy goals and improve your overall mental health and optimal functioning. I respect your privacy and take confidentiality very seriously.

I am a strong believer that counseling should be affordable to ALL. I am on most major insurance plans. If you are in need of self-pay rates visit www.guidingprincplesllc.com. Sliding scale fees available. Email is the fastest way to reach me at guidingprinciplesllc@gmail.com
