My Approach to Helping

Do you need help choosing a career, writing a resume, or finding a job? Are you suffering from anxiety, phobia or fear? Do you need help managing your anger? Are you struggling with pain, stress, sadness, self esteem or guilt? Things can get better. Counseling can help. I have helped hundreds of people like you over the years. Change is possible. There is hope for you. You can find peace and purpose. You will learn new ways to cope with your stress by changing your negative thoughts and focusing on the positives. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you identify negative thinking patterns and learn how to modify your thinking and change your behavior to overcome anxiety, depression, anger and stress. Most people I work with feel better in just 8-10 sessions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I love helping people find new jobs or start new careers and find their purpose in life. I also work with teenagers and adults to overcome anxiety, stress, depression, self esteem and learn anger management strategies. I teach coping skills to help you find peace, purpose and happiness. I believe that change is possible because I have helped many people make positive changes. Don't give up! There is hope! You can be happy again.
