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 finding the right therapist is like finding a pair of shoes that fit just right. It can be a hard process; you may have to try a number of options and drive to a number of stores before you find the right fit. This process can be hard and often deters people from seeking counseling. I became a therapist because I’ve never found being a Human especially easy, and I’ve had a lot of adverse life experiences. For some people, being happy comes naturally. For others it takes a lot of work to find it (just like that pair of shoes). I believe we learn best from...

How your day goes is directly related to the quality of your thinking. If you spend a lot of time ruminating; if you have anxious or fearful thoughts about the future; if you get caught in regret about the past; or, if it's plain old negative self talk, these things make it difficult, if not impossible, to be present and find worth in the present moment. And to pursue that which makes life meaningful and worth living. I have 20 years experience helping people increase the positives in their lives while decreasing the negatives. I see those who come to me as tro...
