Announcement icon Please Call or Email today. We can determine how best to meet your mental health needs- phone, video, or in person. New clients welcome.
Often life can bring us down, make us anxious, cause distress or create confusion. Many times, we manage on our own or with friends or family. Sometimes life "overflows” and even with a support system it’s difficult to manage! Are you feeling that "overflowing" feeling? It's difficult to decide if the issue you are facing requires counseling, but reaching out and asking the question is the first step to making a positive change. I work with you to develop a strong relationship, build trust, and create lasting change in your life.
I've been a counselor for over six years, however, I've been in the "people work" field for over 23. I enjoy working with teens, adults, individuals, couples and families. I use many modalities including creative therapies. While there are many tools in my "counseling tool belt" we ultimately work together to decide the best approach for you!
Remember! Seeking help is a sign of STRENGTH! How many olympians got to their goals without a coach? How many scholars got to their level without teachers? If you need help and you ask for it that's the first step to self-discovery, healing, and GROWTH! We can do this together!
