Counseling & Psychotherapy

Are you unhappy with the way things are? Would you like something better?

Change is unlikely if you keep doing things the same way. Taking the first step is usually the most difficult.

We can probably work well together if you are willing to examine your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, then attempt changes to achieve better outcomes. With over 30 years experience using different methods to help people make constructive changes, I match my approach to your unique goals and needs.
