"My goal is to help you get unstuck. You will begin to feel better just by taking the first step. Serious problems often need someone to both listen and offer alternative ways for thinking in order to make changes that last. Doing nothing and just hoping and wishing that things will get better doesn't work. I will prompt you and support you in taking concrete steps. I talk straight, listen closely and respectfully ask good questions. Starting with our first session, you will begin to figure out a new way to go. Let's talk soon about beginning."

"Life is a journey, and we sometimes lose our direction, get "stuck," and don't know where to turn. Feelings of hopelessness and shame often arise, and our coping skills fail us. Joy can fade from our lives, and some of us isolate as we question who we are and where we fit in. If we knew how to make positive changes, we would jump at the chance -- we can't just "snap out of it" as some might suggest. My approach to therapy and counseling builds on client strengths -- we all have them, and I can help you to identify them. Therapy opens doors to wellness allowing patients to not only 'get well' but also to explore life goals."

Do they seem anxious, sad, or even angry about how everything is just too much? Perhaps your child is overwhelmed by anxiety, panicking at school or at the prospect of too much homework, or overly concerned about what other people think of them?
