Our experiences in life have prepared us to look at counseling as a holistic experience, incorporating the mind, body, and soul. We believe in being a steady support system for our clients, as they find the root of their issues, while also offering them a safe haven where they are free to be themselves, secure of all judgment. This positive attitude, combined with our health-care outlook allows us to reach out to our clients as a friend. Together we will build a collaborative relationship to overcome the obstacles of everyday life for you to reach your true potential. Professional Background: Network Director for Mental Health Care Assessors, Certified Life Innovations Counselors (Pre-marital, Marital, and Post Marital), Crisis Intervention Therapist, Individual, Group, Marriage and Family Therapy. Licensed Ministers (Christian Based), Critical Care Nurse (20+ years), Certified Respiratory Technician (20+ years).

Our Role as Therapists
We work one-on-one to help unearth the cause of frustration, stress, resentment, pain, etc... in our client's life. We help our clients define their goals and facilitate a plan to create and maintain positive change. As the relationship between our clients and us strengthens, fundamental issues will rise into focus. It is not unusual for a client to enter counseling with one specific goal in mind, only to find that something else becomes the focus of their work. Because counseling is a week-by-week, dynamic experience, the content of our sessions will adapt and adjust to each new event, but staying focused on the underlying situation. Treatment plans and solutions are adjusted to fit with changes in the client's life.
We try to help clients cope with and resolve their problems so they will ultimately no longer need counseling. In order to reach this goal, we must work together to uncover the root of the issue(s) and generate realistic solutions that can be put into practice in the client's life.
Our Guiding Ethical Principles
As a psychotherapist, I strive to benefit those with whom I work and take care to do no harm. Professionally, we seek to safeguard the welfare and rights of those with whom we interact with, and other affected persons. When conflicts occur, we attempt to resolve these conflicts in a responsible fashion to avoid or minimize harm. Because we know our actions may affect the lives of others, we are alert to guard against personal, financial, social, organizational, or political factors influencing our judgment. We always strive to be aware of the possible effect of our own physical and mental health and our ability to help those with whom we work with on their journey.
