Here Is How I Can Help You

Once you decide to take the leap to start counseling services, I will be your strongest advocate who will professionally support, guide, teach, and counsel you as you learn  the "ABCs"  to reconnecting and rebuilding your relationships. Since repairing and healing relationships can be long, exhausting, and even difficult at times, I will equip and strengthen you during this journey by providing you with tools and skills that will reduce the  mental and the emotional fatigue you may experience.

Metaphorically, as I ride with you or walk beside you toward your goals for mental and relationship wellness, I will provide you with suggestions, love maps, feedback and  other instructions to assist you with deepening your emotional connections with the people who you love and care for.  I will provide and demonstrate  to you the tools and the skills needed to work through and to manage relationship conflicts. And, I am here to remind you about the importance of communicating and sharing with your partners, family members, and friends about your thoughts, feelings, and needs.
