I am so glad you have arrived here!! Therapy is a type of treatment meant to help "fix" something. So let's be honest.... we ALL have things that need to be fixed, but some things are better fixed with the help of another person. That is where I come in. I have spent the greater part of my life, assisting people of all ages and walks of life, with some little things and some very big things. I am happy to be of assistance with whatever I can help you with. I see therapy as a partnership. It can not be effective by the therapist's efforts alone. Together, we will build the foundation and skills needed to live your very best life.
A little about me: I have spent most of my life's journey working with: family issues (including blended families), adolescents, relationship issues, trauma, foster care issues, divorcees, and parenting issues. I have a Masters degree in Professional/ School Counseling. I also have my clinical license (LCPC) and hold a NCC credential (Nationally Board Certified Counselor). I pride myself in confidentiality, responsibility and rapport building. Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile. I am looking forward to a time that we can talk in the future.
