My Approach to Helping

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 focus primarily on relational counseling, marriage, parent and children, and siblings. I have also worked with individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, grief, and life transition.

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 person and 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.
