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.

The relationship between you and your therapist has proven to be the most important element of healing. My therapy style is authentic, collaborative, and strengths-based, assessing the needs and style that will best serve the individual person. My strengths-based therapy focuses on the inherent strengths and skills that people already have, and uses it as building blocks for future success and problem-solving. Instead of just focusing attention on the problem or using language that stigmatizes or makes people feel like a victim, a strengths-focused approach empo...

I have enjoyed the dynamic client/counselor relationship for 25 years. I realize the courage it takes to get started and to share your story. A healthy life is full of change and growth and uncertainty. Most of us want certainty, wanting to hold onto beliefs even when they don’t serve us. Change is difficult and it is an inevitable part of life. The times when we are challenged the most often prove to be our greatest opportunities for growth. We usually don’t choose our hardships, though we can participate in our healing and use them as a catalyst for chang...

Life is challenging. It can be full of change and uncertainty.
