Now Accepting New Patients!! How long have you been in pain? Have you been living with it so long that you don't remember how it started? Past and current damage can sabotage our attempts at living the life we deserve and prevent us from trusting others. Often before people enter therapy, they have tried many things to make changes in their lives in order to feel better. Nothing has worked- at least for long. Talking about your problems is not enough. I will help you identify destructive patterns that have interfered with your ability to enjoy life and replace them with healthy solutions.

My approach to counseling is to use existentialism to assist the client in reaching their journey with the accountability and acceptance that they are unique and powerful. By using a collaboration of tools the individual and myself are able to discover a pathway that requires hard work, but freedom in knowing that each step is celebrated. I value my clients journey as it is what has created their character, it is my desire to assist them to live life with purpose using their journey to succeed.

Pain is motivating and when clients are in enough pain, it is usually when they call to schedule an appointment. It takes more than intellect to change behavior, as most people know what they "should" do, yet lack the ability to take action. I believe that becoming healthy means having choices, where pain is gain and misery is optional. Whether looking for help individually or in your relationship, due to addiction, mental illness, lack of boundaries, infidelity or simply feeling stuck, it's a relief to not have to do it alone.

**NOT Currently Taking Clients** You're struggling with substance use, addiction, shame, and low self-esteem. Control, perfectionism and rigidity have become ways to manage life. If you're not achieving then you feel worthless. Nothing is good enough! You're harder on yourself than with strangers. You've felt depressed and anxious for as long as you can remember. It's felt difficult to connect with others. Relationships feel challenging. Anger is quick to come out but it's masking other feelings. It feels unbelievably difficult to connect with others, to make friends, and to relate.
