It can feel like a pretty big step to meet with a counselor for the first time…
…and let’s face it, most of us really aren’t thrilled about looking for help outside of the support we get from family and friends.
But if you’ve already been talking with your usual folks and you’re still struggling to find answers or some relief, then you may want to consider the benefits that can come from working with a professional counselor.
Counseling offers a time that is 100% just for you and only about you; which allows a very different kind of interaction than we have with friends and loved ones. Unlike even your most trusted friends, a counselor has no other purpose or agenda, no personal history with you or preconceived bias, and no personal investment in your choices other than helping you uncover what will work best for YOU.
Your counselor is a well trained professional, just like a doctor, dentist, accountant or other specialists. Counselors have studied to be experts in assisting folks through challenges they may face in relationships, decision making, working through life’s choices and transitions, and managing the stress and emotions that come with such times.
With 40 years of counseling experience, I am comfortable and competent addressing many of the challenges and difficulties that disrupt your ease and happiness in you life or relationships. However, no counselor can be an expert in every area.. and if I believe you can be better served by another counselor I’ll let you know why and assist you in finding your ‘right fit’.

- Marriage and Relationship challenges
- Blended Families (at any ages)
