The purpose of counseling is to learn new skills and obtain new insights. Many times people seek counseling because they feel hurt, betrayed, unappreciated, misunderstood, and/or blamed. These feelings can be hard to overcome. Changing perspectives and asking new questions can allow an individual to approach problems differently and move forward.


Ultimately, counseling is a process. You cannot expect to have remarkable changes or insights after one appointment. Some issues may take years to work through fully. Typically counseling lasts a few months, and many times, I suggest that clients take short breaks in counseling to try out new skills, then come back in to re-evaluate.

I look forward to walking with you on this journey. I have seen so many lives positively impacted through counseling work. If you are feeling stuck, stressed, or hopeless about a situation, I hope that you take this important first step in achieving inner peace and fulfillment.

The Counseling Process

Adolescence can be a confusing and difficult time. The rapid changes taking place in our children’s lives can often impact the parent-child relationship. Likewise, changes in a parent’s life – divorce, separation, relocation, addiction, illness, or other issues – can impact children. Depending on the situation, I sometimes I meet with children alone, and sometimes I meet with both the children and the parents together. The goal of this type of counseling is to build a more effective relationships between parents and children and improve communication.

Counseling Services

Individuals come to counseling for a number of reasons – past trauma, addiction, desire for personal growth, anxiety, loneliness, and more. Counseling is a journey, and by speaking with a professional, people are able to better understand their own behaviors, motivations, strengths, and weaknesses. This insight empowers them to make new choices, change their behavior, and better align what they are doing with where they want to go. Many times through counseling, clients are able to break away from damaging old patterns and start making healthier decisions that bring them more happiness and fulfillment.
