West Virginia is known for the Cass Scenic Railroad. In life, you may feel like a train at times. Your train can be fast and takes you to the right destination in a matter of minutes. Other times, it can make many stops and even end up crashing. 

A counselor can be a person who makes sure your train is chugging along at just the right speed. All you need to do is to speak to a counselor today in West Virginia.

I typically practice a holistic, person-centered approach. Holistic in that we will explore topics such as diet, exercise and self-care, to name a few. Person centered, in that your own understanding of your experience is the platform from which we will begin. Person-centered therapy is a movement away from the therapist’s traditional role as an expert and a leader. My style is to work as a guide in this relationship and one who will, while utilizing a deeply thoughtful process, ask the big questions. I will do my best to facilitate your self-discovery, se...

Having worked in therapeutic relationships with individuals for the past eighteen years, I concur with the research which indicates the therapeutic relationship is the most important part of the healing process. To quote form Dante's Inferno, “Midway along the journey of our life I woke to find myself in a dark wood, for I had wandered off from the straight path." This sentence encapsulates the feelings many clients bring to therapy, the culmination of years of existential angst, an accumulation of guilt, anxiety, loss, among a myriad of other experiences w...

My goal is to always provide a safe place for my clients to process their experiences, goals, core beliefs, and values; to provide gentle assistance as they make the decisions that are a reflection of who they are. Together, we problem-solve, laugh, cry, learn, grow, and do it all over again as many times as it takes while clients evolve to fully be who they were meant to be. Broken families, distressed children, unrelenting addictions, professional roadblocks, and relational discord happen all around us and to us every day. These are not things anyone should ...
