What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

Life is unpredictable. Everyone struggles at some point in life. Sometimes the accompanying suffering tears at the very fabric of our understanding of ourselves and how we fit in the world. Life no longer makes sense. Life is not the way you thought it would be or should be. Unbidden desires, anxieties or depression come in to interfere with your ability to live the life you want. Others in your life behave in ways that disrupt your peace of mind and ability to live a meaningful life. Issues you thought you had dealt with long ago resurface in the present.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.

When we think of a counselor or sitting down with a therapist there is that taboo attached to people of being psychotic and crazy. Really, it’s not, it’s just sitting down having a conversation. You don’t have to struggle in silence. All great achievements require time. Remember, darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. As we set and talk I will help you find the light that allows you to stop being a prisoner in your past and become the architect of your future.

Narrative Therapists

There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert.
