People seek help for a wide range of problem situations: crises and troubles plague them; they feel hounded by self-doubt; they grapple with the stress that accompanies broken homes or addiction or trauma. Often, these problem situations are hard to define, and people may struggle to cope with their experiences or to find the resources they need. If they have tried solutions, they may not have worked. At some point, hopefully, they extend an invitation for help, but it still can feel so uncomfortable and risky. That’s why I am here, to receive the invitation and offer hope; you can do whatever you set your heart to do. I employ a client-centered, cognitive counseling approach, whereby I work collaboratively with clients to identify how thoughts and beliefs (cognitions) impact feelings and behavior, while supporting them in their growth process. My goal is to help clients identify personal needs, understand conflicts, discover new options, and make informed choices.
