I specialize in helping people reach their highest potential by connecting with Who They Really Are.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with thousands of individuals and families throughout my professional career. The people I have helped come from a variety of settings: criminal justice system, residential and out-patient addiction programs, private practice, DUI offenders, and individuals just like you needing relief from emotional pain.
One of my gifts as a counselor is my ability to quickly establish a trusting, safe and non-judgmental environment so that you feel comfortable sharing and exploring your Self.
My experience has shown me that no matter what the presenting problem is, it is always critical to eliminate false beliefs about our Selves. These false beliefs come from our childhood, our relationships, and our environments. These false beliefs sound like: I am unlovable. I am unworthy. I am less than. I need someone/something outside of myself to feel better (drugs, sex, money, etc.). The sad fact is a lot of us make critical decisions, with major consequences, believing these false beliefs about our Selves.
This is my area of expertise! I can help you reduce, and even eliminate these errors in thinking about your Self. You are lovable! You are worthy! You are more than! You can feel better without using drugs, sex, money, etc. to mask your shame!
I am an eternal optimist. I truly believe ANYONE can make positive changes and experience a life of love, calmness and happiness!
