Sometimes issues affecting one family member end up impacting the whole family. Is your child struggling in school? Is your family going through a transition such as a divorce, a move or other such disruption? Are you struggling to communicate with your spouse? Do you have a foster/adopted child who has been affected by trauma? All of these (and more) are reasons to seek counseling. I love working with clients to identify strategies to help you create a happy and healthy environment for your family.
Our clients seek help for managing anxiety, trauma, depression, parenting challenges, relationship conflicts, substance abuse, and adverse circumstances that are impacting their lives. Our clients want a place that's comfortable and safe to be open and transparent, but also a therapist that is competent and ethical. We form solid partnerships with our clients so that we fully understand our clients' point of view. When we understand our clients, the solutions become more relevant and precise. Our clients often tell us their hopes became reality when they received help from our staff.
My goal is to help the client in gaining faith in themselves so they refuse to address their life with, "I can't " and, instead see their life as "I am doing.....". Addiction, Anxiety, and, as is the case with many other mental health issues, are resolvable & faith in self & in their spiritual Source is the key...I'll provide them the problem-solving tools and challenge them to develop a positive attitude.. so that they realize their self-worth..

We bring traditional counseling techniques with a blend of supplements and amino acids to increase the individual's chances of a long-term change.
Insanity is repeatedly doing the same thing, yet expecting different results. Ironically, someone living with chronic stress uses the same strategy. Hoping their "I'll get through this somehow" attitude will make the stress go away. Symptoms such as anxiety and depression, trouble sleeping, growing impatience and anger with others, trouble concentrating and making decisions, secretly feeling bad about oneself, guilty and resentful are all indicators one is out of balance. Let me help you remove this distress before it results in health issues. I have years of successful experience teaching clients powerful interventions to transform stress into personal empowerment.
My approach in counseling is somewhat holistic and eclectic. I believe a supportive counseling environment works to help a client achieve awareness, thus leading to healing and personal growth.
My role is to help clients explore their emotional needs and provide feedback. Hopefully, the value will be realized in both behavioral and emotional changes. Under all circumstances, my mission is to treat the client with the utmost regard and honor the human condition as it is.
Counseling hours are available most days at your convenience. Often clients are able to schedule an appointment with 24 hours of calling my office.
The mission of Diverse Counseling Solutions, LLC. is always to provide a safe place for clients to process their experiences, goals, core beliefs and values; we provide gentle assistance as clients make decisions that are a reflection of who they truly are. We problem solve, laugh, cry, learn, grow, and do it all over again as many times as it takes while clients evolve to be fully who they were meant to be.
My approach to therapy is client-centered. I use the "person in environment" approach to understand how the world around you is preventing you from living your best life. I believe everyone strives to be their best self, but challenges prevent us from achieving the life we want. Resilience, growth, and grit are achieved through the perseverance of challenges. Your best self is just beyond where you feel like giving up. I offer empathy and understanding, genuineness, and freedom of judgment, while also holding you accountable and pushing you to be the best version of yourself.
