My Approach to Helping

I am solution focused with over 20 years of experience counseling individuals, couples and families.
You can expect support, compassion and attentive listening as you present your situation. My intent is to optimize your coping skills during your challenging time. If you are feeling uncertain about a matter causing you distress, do not overwhelm yourself by dealing with it alone. Our real and valid concerns can cause us to worry or sometimes feel sad. You are taking the healthy approach to seek professional guidance.
I am non-judgmental, empathetic, and feel strongly about empowering people to achieve goals they have set for themselves.
Couples often vacillate with decisions and sometimes feel stuck or confused by thoughts, which only exacerbates conflict in the relationship. If confusion is preventing you from moving forward with taking control of your current life challenge, a confidential and supportive talk session can help to clarify the underlying issue and explore ways to utilize your own strengths to resolve the matter.
Families (with children, teens, young adults, parents) experience internal conflicts finding the right balance between emotional and practical / sound decision making; particularly when help is needed to motivate the family member who is finding it difficult to adjust to what is expected. Whether it is behavior modification needed to function in school, work related matters, or personal self improvement you are seeking to work on, together we can enhance life skills for better quality of life.
My extensive experience in gently guiding people towards healing, resolution and growth contributes heavily to the process of attaining overall wellness and reduced stress levels.
