We work with: behavior disorders in children/adolescents, Attachment issues (Reactive Attachment Disorder, foster care, adoption , childhood trauma, childhood illness, childhood separation from parental figures), marriage problems (infidelity, communication), step family integration, depression and anxiety disorders and a host of other issues.
Life can be surprisingly hard. Trauma, broken relationships, life changes, depression, parenting and marriage struggles-these things happen to even the strongest people, and sometimes you just need someone to hear you. You need someone to validate your experience and help you make sense of the difficulties you are trying to wade through--that's where a compassionate and honest therapist comes in. As the Owner/Director of Counseling For Hope & Healing, I know our therapists are not afraid to walk through your struggle with you. It may feel overwhelming to take that first step, but know you will not be going at it alone.

There are many elements that can have an impact on our lives, some are anxiety, stress, anger, depression, grief, addiction, and conflict. These issues decline our physical and mental health. The ideal client is one that is ready for change and desires additional coping skills; one that is willing to progress daily towards goals that WE establish, one that understands that life can be rigid but daily living can be fluid and adjusting can be the benefit of counseling. Changing is difficult, refusing to change or not knowing that change is necessary can be dysfunctional.

I know what it’s like to feel stressed and overwhelmed by… life. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, recovering from trauma, recovering from the physical or mental effects of COVID, or having conflict with loved ones and all of these things and more lower your ability to manage even the smallest of stressors. You just want to get through a day without feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders or like you want to find a place to hide. Or maybe you feel stuck and don’t know how to take the next step to get where you want to be in life.

After many years' experience as both client and therapist, I understand that the therapist works no magic. Nothing can be delivered or injected or swallowed that works a "cure." The resources for healing are already within the client; the therapist holds a metaphorical mirror so the client can see them better. So effective work needs two things: the initiative and commitment of the client, and the skill of the therapist in holding up mirrors. Still, the relationship must "click." Unfortunately, the ingredients for this are somewhat mysterious. You are the final judge.

Life is a journey full of joy, disappointment, fear, courage, unexpected blessings and unplanned circumstance. We encounter barriers that appear to block our dreams from reality and challenges that make us feel unworthy and incapable of ever achieving success. The purpose of the journey, however, is to GROW through every adversity and every triumph and flourish. My ideal client seeks to be empowered through their growth process to achieve clarity, self-awareness and self-development. Although growth can be painful, the goal is to thrive after the breakthrough and to allow the transformation to better themselves and others.

I believe all individuals have the skills within them to face any challenges they may encounter in their lives. Through counseling, it is my desire to help people discover these skills and learn to apply them more effectively to overcome their obstacles. I specialize in helping children, adolescents and their families work through the daily struggles of life to improve relationships both with themselves and each other. I believe counseling can be beneficial to everyone across the lifespan. There is no problem too big or too small.

Life can surely throw us a curve ball from time to time. However, we can learn to become resilient and develop a mindset that we are overcomers. No one is immuned to life's disappointments, nor its ups and downs in our personal and professional lives. Yet there is still hope that we can function in society without feeling like we cannot make it another day. I have experience helping others to improve their quality of life for more than twenty years. No one can do this alone. Come on let's get started "Pursuing the right path to improve your quality of life". For couples, I offer a Premarital and Marital Bliss Intensive.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
