In the old days, the path the traders took in order to make their living was the Oregon Trail. It was a rough journey, but those who could make it to the end felt rewarded. In life, it can be a bit like a trail. It’s smooth sailing, and then something happens to make the journey difficult. 

A counselor can help cross any trail life has to offer, and they can benefit you by being your guard to pass the trail as quickly as possible.

I believe that anyone can achieve an optimum state of mental and emotional health regardless of environmental influences and/or previous traumatic experiences. I also believe that someone’s negative experiences and difficulties need not define who that person is or determine their human potential. During my 10-years of counseling experience I've chosen to employ an eclectic approach to therapy tailored to meet each individual’s needs and goals with a strong reliance on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and evidence based approaches compatible with best practices and ...

My goal in working with you is to help you focus on the causes of issues rather than the symptoms. Symptoms are an excellent road map, but it’s getting to the reason that creates long-lasting change. To help you work on what your cause may be, I use Cognitive Therapy along with a focus on your thoughts and how you manage what you think. I also encourage healthy self-care so that you are both mentally and physically finding the best balance possible to have the energy for your better life. Change is possible, and you can make things different! I can help you...

Sometimes you are struggling with "old issues" and sometimes it is more current stresses like anxiety, relationships, or just do not know what to do next; I believe when you are ready to make a change, having a supportive push can really work! I have been a practicing social worker since 1985. I have worked in many areas of practice including active ...
