As a counselor it is my goal to help you understand your feelings and explore the thoughts and beliefs that stand in the way of achieving your goals. I generally use a Cognitive / Behavior Therapy approach in counseling sessions to help accomplish your goals. I have worked extensively with Alcohol/Drug Abuse and Dependence, Marriage and Family issues, Divorce Recovery, and Christian Counseling. I am ready to help.
If you change your thinking about an event, person, circumstance, etc. you have a greater possibility of dealing with it in a satisfactory way. Learning to change the way we think about something can be done by anyone who is capable of rational thought and a willingness to the work.
Lack of insurance should not be a obstacle to receiving help. If you do not have insurance, if money is tight, I am willing to discuss with you how to deal with the financal arrangements of receiving counseling while dealing with the real issues that are important to you.
