At times our struggles, confusions, and hurts can interrupt our lives and prevent us from living life to the fullest. When we address our concerns with someone who is willing to listen, care, and provide some clarity, we can understand ourselves and our relationships more, freeing us to move on with more peace, contentment, and a solid direction. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families, dealing with depression, anxiety, addictions, and grief due to illness and suicide. I appreciate the difficult process of grief we walk through when tragedies happen.
I understand that all individuals have a unique life experience, genetic makeup, and learned ways of viewing life within their surrounding family, community, and culture - and every relationship is unique unto itself.
If you are looking to take better care of yourself and others, want to resolve long-standing issues and improve your relationships, or simply feel stuck or in a rut, I can help you uncover your strengths, untangle confusing and painful relationships, and move forward to a life of intention and purpose.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Seeking out the right therapist for you is essential. Feel free to ask whatever concerns you may have about the therapists life philosophy and counseling practice guidelines. When you are ready, take the next step and set up an appointment, and use the first session to determine whether the therapist is a good fit for you or not. Be honest with yourself and him/her.
If a good relationship is established, you have found yourself an arena in which you can be heard, receive objective insight or guidance, and more often than not, a new understanding to your life and circumstances which can heal you and free you to move on toward your preferred life in peace.
