Counselor, EdD, LPC, LMHC, NCC, DCC
“We live in a contradictory world, and are often at odds with either our goals or society. We are increasingly busy and less connected to family and other personal networks. Our world gives limited room for true self-discovery and devalues personal responsibility and challenge. In my practice, you are free to look at where you came from, where you are now, and where you want to go. I am not as concerned with diagnosis or problems as I am concerned about who you are and what you want to do in life. Life is worth living to the fullest!
