Your counseling is about YOU. Period. Be ready to work, to be challenged and to implement positive change and habits into your life. Everyone needs "a fresh start" at times. A free thirty-minute phone consultation prior to your initial visit is offered. This ensures our compatibility which will help build a strong therapeutic relationship.
WHAT I BELIEVE:
*When we love, we must love deeply. *It is never too late for positive change. *Hope is a constant. *Relationships are not disposable. *When we stop talking... we can hear better. *Honesty and integrity are the pillars of a virtuous character. *Never hurt a child. *People are inherently kind. *There is always another option. *People are usually doing the best they can with whatever emotional reserves they have for that day. *It is our job to take care of all creatures and all creations. *Leave a legacy you are proud of. *Violence is never the answer. *The component of our personality we consistently feed, consistently wins. *All war veterans deserve swift and unbiased counseling. *Endeavor to make the world a better place. *We need to try to be "OK" with the person we see in the mirror everyday. *Marriage is perpetual work, but is rewarding.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
We all need "a fresh start" at times. Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive trained professional is calming. It can be healing to voice your worries or talk about your heavy burdens with someone. It feels good to be listened to... to know someone else cares about you and is able to help. Everyone can benefit from therapy. Many people seek therapy for everyday concerns, such as relationship problems, job stress, or self-doubt for example. Others turn to counseling during difficult times, such as a divorce, or a loss they have experienced. There is no smooth, fast road to recovery. It's a process that is full of twists, turns and the occasional setback. Be patient. These are expected. Changing patterns take consistent, deliberate actions to lock in lasting change. Counseling can help solve your big picture problems, help fix your relationships, and assist you in figuring out what to do in your life. It can also give you insights into your continued unhealthy habits. Therapy can be challenging. Uncomfortable emotions and thoughts often arise as part of the treatment process. Therapy can provide long-lasting benefits. It provides the tools for transforming your life and for relating better to others, and for helping you cope with whatever concerns may arise.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
We all have our blind spots. Feeling weak or flawed may be what leads you to counseling, but has nothing to do with your progress in counseling. Therapists don't say what to do or how you should live. An experienced outside professional perspective is helpful in gaining insight so you make better choices. Therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and want to learn tools and techniques to become more self-confident and emotionally balanced. The primary focus of counseling is changing unhealthy patterns and symptoms you are experiencing. Therapy is not about blaming, it is about discovering. Improvement through therapy comes from reevaluating your life and taking responsibility for any actions you have taken. I will help guide you, but ultimately you, the client, must do the work.
