...and hello there!
People come to counseling for many different reasons.
What brought you here at this moment is as individual as you are.
I believe that people need to feel a connection with their counselor to have the greatest impact. I want to provide an environment and relationship in which you can feel welcome, safe, heard and understood. Nobody wants to feel alone. My approach in the counseling relationship is to provide a comfortable place to facilitate connection. From that center, we can begin to explore the point in your life that brought you to this place. We then can use a variety of tools to help you reach your goals.
The challenges can seem overwhelming. Maybe a way of coping in your life doesn’t work anymore. You may be struggling with relationship issues, or maybe it’s difficult to be the kind of parent you want to be. You may be worried about your child or teen and what’s happening at school or with friends. Whether the difficulty seems large or small, or whether you or your family have experienced single or multiple stressors, there is hope.
I want you to feel safe on your journey toward a more peaceful, more empowered life full of greater happiness and satisfaction.
I would consider it my honor and privilege to meet you. Call or email me today, and we can set up a time for you to come to my office. I really value the human "connection," and it's really important to me that you feel comfortable. If you want to find out if this is a good match for you, you can come to the first session, see what it's like, and I can answer all of your questions. If it seems like a good match, and I feel I can address what you are looking for, you can pay for the first session at your next session (and I can bill your insurance company as needed). If it's not a good match, you don't need to pay for that first session, and I can offer referrals for other therapists in the area (if you like).
Together, we can explore ways you can begin to find increased joy, feelings of success, and deepen your connection with those you love.
I look forward to hearing from you!
