My Approach to Helping

Deciding whether or not to seek counseling can resemble a root canal I once had - embarrassment about not brushing properly, pain of the procedure, and the cost all made me wonder if it was worth it. Counseling can seem like this. If you're like me, though, you may also feel stuck or hopeless as problems come up again and again. Will anything really change? Life just is not supposed to be like this... Let me say, you are not alone and there is so much hope!

An ancient teaching says, "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." Our hearts are vital to living freely. I want you to know I will fight for your heart, and I would count it a real honor to journey with you.
