Announcement icon I still offer video sessions for those who want that, but most clients are coming in person at this time. We'll adjust as necessary.
Sad, Worried, and Stubborn Teenagers; Rocky Relationships; Worried Parents; and Stressed Individuals. These are the people I help. You probably already know what the problem is and what you don’t want anymore. You don’t want to be sad, you don’t want to be in this rut, or you're tired of arguing with your teenager or spouse about the same things over and over. Trying to solve it yourself can be like trying to eat a huge pizza that hasn’t been cut into slices-- it's overwhelming and you don’t know where to start. My job is to help you break the solution into pieces so you can decide where to start and what your next steps are.
I help you develop a clear idea of what you want for your "preferred future", and a plan to make it happen. I’ll help you select small actions to start with to make the changes you want. Small changes lead to big differences. The small steps we start with are based on your unique skills, talents, and past successes, making them more comfortable to try.
I help you use past successes as tools to build new solutions. This is Solution Focused Counseling and it works for couples, teens, individuals, and families. Would you rather build solutions for your future than dwell on past mistakes? Want to feel motivated and positive after counseling sessions? Solution Focused counseling may be right for you.
