Welcome to
The Counseling Center

We all go through times in our lives when we feel unsure of ourselves, discouraged, overwhelmed, or depressed. In fact, 1 in 5 people will experience a mental health challenge. We may feel stressed, stuck, lost, or out of control. This loss of control results in unpleasant symptoms such as depression, anxiety, stress, guilt or shame, addiction, relationship discord, and occupational problems.  When confronted with these difficulties we each have unique resources, strengths, and coping skills that we may draw on, reconfigure, and enhance. Therapy helps us to use them most effectively

Individual Counseling
Individual counseling is a one-on-one discussion between the counselor and the client. The two form a therapeutic relationship that promotes trust and personal growth.  Individual counseling focuses on the client's immediate or near future concerns.  Counseling offers an environment in which you can express your feelings and gain deeper insight into your difficulties. Because counseling sessions are confidential, you can talk about things you might not feel comfortable discussing with anyone else. toward desired change.

Telehealth involves the delivery of counseling services using HIPAA compliant audio and video teleconferencing software.  Generally, Telehealth is reserved for situations in which there are barriers preventing the client from coming to the counselor’s office.  For example, if the client were out-of-town and it was determined it was not appropriate to wait until he/she returned.  Clients must have access to a computer with a camera and microphone and a private location.



Congratulations on taking the first step towards achieving a happier, more fulfilling life.  I know from personal experience  how difficult it is to ask for help.  My personal journey from addiction to long-term recovery would not have occurred had I not taken that first step.  Thankfully, you don’t have to take that step alone.  I believe that the therapeutic relationship forms the basis of all interactions between the counselor and client.  I approach this relationship in a non-judgmental way that respects the diversity and inherent value of each person.

My goal is to help clients explore their problems, strengthen their voices, and enrich their lives.  My approach is eclectic, combining cognitive and behavioral techniques to respond to the unique personalities of my clients.  

I became a counselor because I really do believe that positive change and growth are possible and that we all can live richer, fuller lives.   If you are ready to schedule an appointment, click the Request Appointment button.
