My Counseling Philosophy
I believe that many people reach a point in their lives where they feel challenged by life. This could be triggered by the loss of a job, a struggling marriage, family issues, or a personal battle. At times like this, often the last thing we want to do is talk to someone about our discouragement. However, this is the most important thing we can do for ourselves, our families, and our livelihood. I believe it is important to meet people where they are at, emotionally and mentally. It is imperative to evaluate how you got to this point, and where you want to go from here. That is what I am here for. It is important for me to understand the goals you have for your life, and to give you a neutral support system to help you attain them. Counseling is a place for you to better yourself and to better your life.
