Virginia is known for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. It’s a long bridge that spans quite the distance. Life can be viewed like a bridge. The bridge can take you to your destination, or lead to nowhere. It all depends on what kind of bridge it is. And sometimes, the bridge can be broken and dangerous, leading you to fall. 

A counselor can be the person who keeps your bridge strong and going on the right path. Speak to one today and see where they can lead you.

My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least.
