"Afternoon and evening appointments. Everyone deserves a quality life! Change is a choice, not a requirement during counseling. Whether you have relationship challenges, want to expand existing strengths, or increase satisfaction, we work together towards your goals. Therapy is a safe, non-judgmental environment to promote personal growth. Mind and body combined influence our past, present, and future experiences. Non-verbal communication (body posture, voice, and facial expressions) influence how we communicate and connect with others. As you talk, I may ask what in your body at that moment or try different movements or postures."
