Do you feel like everything on the outside is "perfect" but you are struggling on the inside? Does life seem great "on paper" but you aren't happy? Do you feel like all your friends are happy and you're a mess? These feelings are more common than you think and can come from all kinds of sources - family problems, transition/change, and just an overall uncertainty of who you are and what you want -including questions about sexuality and gender. Life doesn't come with a handbook. But the good news is that I don't think we need one!

I see my role as a counselor is one of an assistant or facilitator. I believe we all have the ability to help ourselves but we sometimes need a little help. As we go about our daily lives, we encounter stress which can affect us in different ways; showing up as depression, anxiety, health problems, or relationship problems. Sometimes we need someone to listen and give us a different perspective on our problems and insight as to how to deal effectively with them. I am familiar with cognitive-behavioral techniques and incorporate family systems and personality theories as needed.

IS COUNSELING FOR YOU?... Are you feeling depressed, grief, lonely or hopeless? Do you spend much of your day thinking over and over about your worries? Maybe most of your interactions with your significant other are arguments. Are you a parent who is constantly worried about your teen's isolation? You are not alone. These are common situations for most people to have at some point in their life. For example: 3 out of 5 adults experience depression in their lifetime. For teens: 8 out of 10 will have serious depression. 40 million adults are effected by anxiety.

You may be experiencing losses and transitions of all kinds, or have weight and eating concerns, gambling concerns, relationship problems or who just want career counseling. We can explore these together. I work with men, women, and adolescents of diverse backgrounds, who might not believe that counseling can be sensitive to their needs.

Relationships are blessings in our lives but often a source of deep pain. I see so many children, families, and couples distressed with life: unable to experience the blessings; and unable to find peace and satisfaction. In those situations, communication patterns are often marked with defensiveness, criticism, and sometimes even contempt. Sometimes families and couples have stopped talking altogether, unable to find the caring and understanding that once filled their relationships. My practice specializes in Couples/Family relationships and communication challenges - helping folks learn to listen, understand, and love.
