Events happen in life, and then we have a choice in how we react to them, whether positive, neutral and negative. This is where I try to help people, in choosing their reactions while working through their feelings. Counseling is a discussion, and I try to guide people to make helpful solutions and to feel better about their lives. New understandings about your life and new behaviors can help you to feel better."

I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system."
