why counseling?


Psychologist Henry Cloud once said about counseling: "We change our behavior when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing."

You might be reading this because you or someone you know are in pain. Maybe no one even knows you're hurting so much. You've tried other strategies, but things keep staying the same. I think you're here for a reason. Counseling can help. 

find your focus

As a teenager, I remember the first time I went to the eye doctor. After running tests and asking me questions, she fitted me with specific lenses. I recall being amazed at the difference. "I never knew I was missing all of this!" The match of a professional's expertise and my own perception was the only combination for the right prescription.

Counseling is much the same way. I'll speak with you about your experiences and discover what road blocks are in your way and what's blurry. I'll help you see your relationships more clearly and understand how patterns in your life keep you from living the kind of life you want. We'll develop goals and get you the tools to see clearly.
