Asking for help is a sign of strength.

It takes courage to ask for help.  Admitting that you can’t do everything on your own is the first step toward achieving wellness in a fast-paced, demanding world.  The good news is that asking for help gets easier with a little practice. The way in which we cope in the world is greatly influenced by how we see the world.  Asking for help opens the door for obtaining a fresh perspective and developing the mental muscle needed to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve more successes.

It’s important to choose a skilled counselor or therapist with whom you feel safe, heard, and connected; a strong therapeutic alliance is a critical component for healing.  I serve my clients by providing a compassionate, accepting environment which allows them a safe place to face and work through their challenges.  I believe that individuals possess the inner strength and guidance needed to live well but may need support and skills in order to utilize their inner resources.  Accessing your inner resources empowers you to move into personal growth and well-being.  Together, we can identify long-standing thought and behavior patterns that are preventing you from living a more meaningful and fulfilling life.  Our past experiences cannot be changed.  However, the meanings that we create about our past experiences can be changed and allow us to move forward in our lives.

If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, it will be my pleasure to work with you to help you achieve your goals.

The Benefits of Therapy

Psychotherapy can be an effective tool in providing you with the necessary support and training to overcome the challenges you face.  By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life.

As an experienced licensed professional counselor, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and helping you to move toward a healthier, more fulfilling life.

With honesty and compassion, I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times in the future as well as become a more productive and happier person.
