Everyone has the strength and capacity to change. As humans, we occasionally get stuck in unhelpful ways of thinking or behavioral patterns. As a counselor, my goal is to create a safe space for reflection and help you develop skills so that you can be better equipped when confronted with life’s difficulties.
The pain from past traumatic experiences, feelings of abandonment, loneliness, self-isolation, stress, anxiety, or depression can be devastating and can bring you self-destructive and antisocial behavior. If you are in a similar situation, you can overcome these challenges with help. You are not alone and do not have to hide from the outside world. Help is available to enable you to overcome the pain and to find understanding that fits your lifestyle. I can work with any age group, but my preference is working with individuals who are 18 and older.
My ideal client is someone that is ready to work toward wellness. This person will likely be between 18 and 45. The root issue will be a lack of satisfaction with life as it is currently experienced and as a result the person will need assistance with identifying goals. The client will need support and encouragement to achieve the goals, which I'll gladly provide.
