The most difficult phase of life is not when no one understands you; it is when you don’t understand yourself. - Author unknown

Are you struggling with:

  • Relationship, Marriage, or Divorce?
  • Anger issues, Domestic Abuse or Violence?
  • Sex Abuse Survivor Issues?
  • Family Discord?
  • Chronic or Terminal Illness?
  • Grief and Loss of a Loved One?

I CAN HELP.

We all have times where life’s challenges are too heavy to carry alone.  It is at these times that we can turn to someone who would listen and care.  My approach to counseling is rooted in the deep belief and conviction that in a safe and supportive environment, every individual has the ability to change, regardless of the circumstances.  A caring and compassionate therapist, I offer support to those experiencing difficulties whether in their marriage or personal life.  My diverse background and life experiences allow me to work with adolescents, adults, families and couples.  I am open to treat males or females from different ethnicities or religious affiliations.

As a clinician, I have fifteen years of clinical experience with couples, families, and individuals from different ethnic and religious backgrounds who struggle with these issues.  Also having trained as a hospital chaplain for adults and children, I have worked with patients and families facing terminal illnesses and difficult life decisions.

Whether you are experiencing any of these issues or are simply feeling stuck or overwhelmed by events and life circumstances, therapy can be a very powerful tool.  In our counseling sessions I will help you verbalize and be aware of the thoughts and behaviors that might be keeping you in your present situation.  Change can be scary, but in our sessions you will learn to recognize and navigate through your fears.

As my client you will experience warmth, acceptance and encouragement.  At the same time you will hear honesty and insight that will challenge your thinking and shine a light on possibly self-defeating behaviors.  Together, we will explore your life-choices and establish new, self-affirming behaviors that will allow you to reach the goals you have set for yourself.

If you are looking at your life through dark-colored glasses, therapy will help you have a more realistic view of your situation.  It can provide you the ability to step back and examine it in a more objective way, thus empowering you to restructure your life and make positive changes.

I truly believe that the answers are already within you.  My role is to help you unlock these answers by guiding and encouraging you to reach within yourself and draw on the God-given wisdom you already possess.  You are the driver; I am your partner in your journey toward self-discovery and self-actualization.
