"Counseling can feel like an intimidating prospect, sharing your heart and mind with a stranger in hopes of finding something better, something different. Whether you're struggling to find an identity in the chaos of life, anxious about tomorrow, or feeling stuck and hopeless, having your own personal GPS through a counseling relationship can make a huge difference between driving in circles or discovering vitality and joy in the journey.

"At times, life can feel overwhelming. One of the ways I work with people is learning to stay present and increasing your self-awareness. This skill can grant us an incredible power to own our experiences and the ability to write our own story–no matter what has happened in our life. Research shows that to change the way you feel, you must first learn to become more familiar with and accept your inner experience. When we learn to listen to our bodies and thoughts with intention, there is no limit to your potential.
