Why Counseling?

 It is my belief that every person faces challenges in their life. However, some challenges are tougher than others. I believe a new day is in store for you. It's my desire to join with you as you move forward in life, and face these challenges.  

My Focus

I embrace the theory that people are not defined by their problems, but their problems are external of them. Through this strength-based approach, I believe a person can be empowered to take control of their life. By exploring one’s family system, culture, and spirituality I believe one will find the strength within themselves to change. I would count it a privilege if you would invite me to walk alongside you as you journey into your new day.

I offer counseling sessions for individuals, couples, and families.
