In my 16 years of experience as a therapist, I have discovered that each of us has problems that at times become overwhelming. Many of us know that we are capable, but there are times when each of us find ourselves struggling to cope with certain issues. My counseling approach acknowledges this similarity in all of us. My approach to counseling embraces the reality that all of us will both need and offer help as we journey through life. More importantly, I embrace the value that my clients place upon the issues they present to me. From my perspective, any issu...

Do you feel stuck? Lost? Trapped? Unfulfilled? Living for others and therefore, living very limited? Knowing that you have great potential, well, at least many see that you do, but you don't see it! Do you question your existence or purpose in life, and know there is more to explore out there, but just don't know how or where to start? Does your apathy impact your relationship, health, or kids, and you want a way out? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you are actually in the right place and you are not alone. I was once there, so I understan...
