Hello, My name is Adara W. Anderson and I am passionate about helping change people’s lives through counseling.

In my experience, when people reach the point that they call for help, they are at the perfect place to begin the work of counseling. My therapeutic approach emphasizes hopefulness, empathy, acceptance, and the provision of a confidential setting f...
