Seek first to understand, then be understood, is the phrase that best describes my approach to counseling. Therapy is about you and your needs. I want to understand who you currently are and the person you would like to become. My focus is improvement; not diagnosis, not blame. Let's set goals towards self-improvement. Lets solve problems. Lets do it together! I am your change agent.

Think you may have a Substance Abuse problem? Maybe you don't but your family or the courts think you do. Drug and Alcohol Evaluations also available.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

How we get along in our relationship as client and therapist is EXTREMELY important to the process. Honestly, would you tell your deepest darkest secrets to someone you did not trust? Working through concerns in a safe environment where you are free to express yourself is important to change. Feeling free of judgment and criticism is empowering and leads to enlightenment. Providing safety and understanding is my primary focus. Only then will you feel comfortable dealing with the real concern that holds you back.
