Whether you’re looking for ways to strengthen your relationship, spiritual enlightenment, guidance through a particularly difficult time, or you’re open to a real change in your life and where you’re going, together, we can work to achieve dreams, and meet your goals.
My goal as your counselor is to find solutions that work for you on an individual basis, helping you to discover the true potential of your life, so everyday can be a celebration, and feel like a real ‘breath of fresh air.’ There may be no magic button or quick-fix solution when it comes to changing things from the past that have been difficult, but what we can do is work together to find comfort and resolve in the difficult areas of your life, and the challenges you have to face. Through various techniques and long-standing approaches with proven results, we’ll be able to figure out what behaviors and/or thoughts might be holding you back from living your best life, and finding meaning in everyday situations.
There is no ‘perfect person’ for this type of therapy. Anyone dealing with any type of emotional issues, from depression to couple’s counseling, and everything in between, is welcome. You can rest assured that you will be in a comfortable, supportive, and encouraging environment, where the focus will be on you alone - there is no ‘cookie cutter’ way of doing things here, and your individual needs to achieve growth are the top priority.
Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help my clients deal with.
I understand that the clients I see are entrusting me to give them the right resources to guide them down a new path, with a new perspective, so they can achieve their own goals. With a healthy balance of listening, guiding, and even learning, I take pride in using my own experience and resources to help people really start off on the right foot on that path. Whether you, or someone you know struggles with something like depression, or simply wants a different outlook on their life, it’s something to work through together, and by setting up a consultation, we can get started.
As a pastoral counselor, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors that detract from your life and focus, and begin identifying and practicing things that will make you stronger.
