Everyone’s life journey has mountains, valleys, creeks, and oceans to traverse and sometimes it can be overwhelming! We all experience the complete gamut of emotions and challenges in our travels. While no two people’s life journey is exactly the same, there are people who can help you along the way through understanding, caring empathy, and educated guidance.

For the last 30 years, I have been serving the public in many different roles which has now brought me to counseling. My experiences have been working with survivors of criminal acts, First Responders, soldiers, and the people of Iraq. For the last 12 years I have been working with teenagers, families, individuals, and couples who are working hard to repair or improve their relationships.

My counseling style is based on Reality Therapy supported by Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and other modalities. There is no one tool for every job, your treatment plan will be unique to your story. I am not a counselor who just sits and nods……..we will be working together.

As your counselor I am here to help you follow or change your path, to make it the most direct, and smooth course it can be. Each time we pick up our foot, extend it in front of us, and then put it down again is one more step to moving “ever forward.”

I offer a rate of $40 per 50-minute session, I will do an initial consultation with you, to see if I’m a good fit, this may be done either by phone or in-person. If you have a financial challenge, please still give me a call, and we can discuss possibilities.
