At some point in life, everyone finds themselves facing something. The question is, "Are you ready to face it?" Come take the first step with counseling and I will gladly walk with you! I make it my duty to cater to the specific needs of each person using creative techniques that fit you. My counseling style is based on the foundation of transparency and mutual trust, using collaborative efforts to meet your personal goals.
