Often individuals feel “stuck” and are fearful to make changes in their lives. In the beginning stages of counseling I assist clients in identifying what is not working for them as well as helping them make sense out of what is confusing or holding them back from change.  This process brings about clarity.

Once things are clearer and fear has been put to rest, the empowerment process can begin. Throughout the counseling process I view myself as a safe support and guide. I help individuals realize that they possess all they need within themselves to have a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

My approach is proactive and solution focused. Together we generate a game plan and construct effective strategies to accomplish the transformation you want.
