About You

Be all that you want yourself to be. Contrary to what you have been told, it really is possible to become the person you would like to be.

Personal counseling with a National Certified Counselor (NCC) may be your best path to successfully dealing with the variety of distressing issues the world presents to you each day or which you create for yourself. Seeking qualified counseling assistance for psychological, emotional, and relationship issues should be just as common as going to your personal, well-trained, and experienced medical professional for physical discomforts. The question is not which distressing issues you are dealing with, but how you are dealing with those issues.

Working with a trained therapist in a non-threating environment, one-on-one or as a member of a small group, from a relaxing environment of your own choosing via a confidential online discussion that becomes for you a “safe place to land” can greatly accelerate personal progress in achieving your desired personal relationship objectives. Those who find themselves in potential life-changing events such as death of a loved one, breakup of a relationship, loss of employment, family or other significant interpersonal issues may truly benefit from professional counseling.

I base my client work on various therapeutic principles with the objectives of not repeatedly re-plowing “old ground” and not focusing on the past, but working to help my clients find answers that will work for them today and in the future. My counseling style centers on my clients’ needs and desires rather than trying to impose my recommendations on their lives.

I also recognize that some people’s needs exceed my knowledge and experience. In such cases, I refer the client to more qualified counselors or other professionals.
