My Approach to Helping

I believe in taking a positive approach to motivating people in opening doors to a more productive future by helping them move beyond their life circumstances. After 35 years as a behavioral healthcare counselor and 10 years as a life coach, people have their own answers to issues and problems, but obstacles and barriers make it difficult and confusing. What makes life issues difficult and confusing is a lack of knowledge, anxiety, and one's own position. Initially, humans interpret their environment through senses, then later develop language that helps them interpret their beliefs. These early developments can lead to beliefs that can be in error, causing problems in life. These beliefs can be changed to help eliminate obstacle and barriers in our lives.

More Info About My Practice

In 35 years I went above and beyond by providing therapy in my office as well as visiting clients in their home or other environments, meeting family members, and other relevant people if necessary.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

My own life struggles have not only provided me with personal insight, and has helped me as a psychotherapist to have a better understanding of each individual lifestyle, culture, and family history.
