Counseling

Counseling is defined by the American Counseling Association as "the provision of assistance and guidance in resolving personal, social, or psychological problems and difficulties, especially by a professional." As a counselor, my role is to provide a safe environment for you to share, discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings to move towards success. The counseling environment and tone is set by the individual so that the greatest potential for growth is available. 

In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.
— Albert Einstein

Our moods, choices and actions are influenced by our thoughts, the foods we eat and the activities we engage in. Therefore, my focus is on assisting individuals identify how their emotional concerns are connected to their total wellness. Through the use of Clinical Counseling and Health Coaching techniques, I can help you address personal, social, relationship, and physical wellness. 

Using client-centered strategies and cognitive-behavioral interventions, clients must be active in their counseling and know there is no easy fix. I can support you as you refocus on life's goals and identify your strengths and skills.
