I believe compassion and understanding are critical to the counseling process. It also takes courage when you, the client, are willing to explore challenging issues in a safe environment. This promotes healing. Change is tough, but so much is possible when you can see and experience life in a new more satisfying way! I have an interest in topics most if us want to avoid: grief, loss, caregiving, and lifestyle changes. When you become more familiar with your inner feelings,and can talk about them, life is less scarey. Therapy is an exciting journey. Give it a try.
In addition to the above, I also help folks with personal growth and relationships. Whether you have lost a loved one to death or dementia; experienced divorce or separation; had hopes and dreams crushed by traumatic experience; you deserve an opportunity to work through the issues and then move on.
I take an honest and encouraging approach with my clients. I feel therapy should be affordable and available to everyone. I am happy to discuss a fee arrangement that works for both of us. I can also give you a receipt to be submitted to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
