About Us

 

Everyone faces challenges in their life and times when things are overwhelming.  When that happens, it is wise to seek out counseling as a resource.  Even though this may be a new experience for you and some people are nervous at first, I know from all the years I’ve been a counselor that you will quickly feel some relief that you are addressing the problem and are closer to a solution, even from the very first session.  No matter how big you think the problem is, you can always make progress.  I have treated clients successfully as a Licensed Professional Counselor for over 22 years specializing in marriage and family counseling in addition to substance abuse and addiction issues.   I have used clinical hypnotherapy for over 18 years to help resolve trauma issues and help people stop smoking and address a myriad of issues using our subconscious mind as a resource.  I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and a supervisor for LPC Interns.

My approach is to be active in your counseling experience, to give you observations and input with respect to your options and alternatives.  Although I cannot make decisions for you, I believe people come to counseling after they have exhausted their own resources and are looking for information and ideas about how to proceed.  There are skills and methods that really will help you to feel better and relate differently to others.  Once you decide to move forward, things change quickly for the better.  Just getting started in counseling is a great stride forward for you and opens the door to much more growth and progress.  I have been in personal alcohol and addiction recovery myself for over 25 years and I bring those experiences into our sessions to help if that is your concern.  I have been married over 20 years with two adult children, am an adopted child and a step-father also so those life experiences enable a greater understanding of blended families and parenting.  I want you to know that you can turn things around.  All it takes is a phone call and a willingness to get started.
