Thoughts on Counseling

I believe that in today’s technologically driven world counseling can provide a safe place where our whole being can slow down to be present in the present moment. Through counseling, clients can explore their current life situation and begin to deal effectively with the circumstances they are facing.  I believe building a strong therapeutic relationship is foundational in the counseling process.


There is also a component of providing a space with freedom to explore oneself with grace and acceptance. This space is a rare gift in our fast-paced culture. Counseling can provide tools for change, but more importantly, it can be a springboard to begin identifying some of the contributing factors that have led to the current situation.


I have worked with many clients where counseling has become a place of hope and healing because they desired growth in their lives.  


It would be a privilege to walk alongside you on life’s journey.
