About me

I have been in the helping profession for nearly 30 years, and have been a licensed counselor for 20. Now, more than ever, I see how the external factors of our world, a divided society, and a pandemic are weighing on people in unprecedented ways, creating real struggles in otherwise very well-functioning adults, due to job loss, anxiety about the future, relationship stressors, and mental fatigue from the constant bad news. I believe it is critical to have non-judgmental support during these times to help people cope and find the path forward in the most "well" way possible.

Kent has been a great listener as well as sharing thoughts on things I can do for self care, etc.

I really enjoyed my time working with Kent. I had a very limited understanding of toxic family dynamics and gaslighting before working with Kent. Now I understand my own family dynamic, and I'm no longer ashamed to talk about it or ask for help. He's also helped me work on issues like boundary setting and communication. I still have a long ways to go, but I'm so thankful and proud of the progress I made while working with Kent.
