My life has been an extraordinary journey and it has offered me profound insights that I feel honored to have experienced. Having grown up in a military lifestyle is unique in itself but compounded with other singular distinctive life experiences has helped me discern a world view that is probably more suited to the counseling profession than any other profession I could have pursued.
I believe in resiliency, the strength that each of us carries to persevere in the worst of situations. I believe in the power of forgiveness, the ability to let the past remain in the past. We cannot change the past, only learn from it. Hopefully, our choices we make will guide us in the directions we want to go to achieve the goals we set out to pursue.
There are events in life that test our convictions in very serious ways and sometimes we fail those tests. We can get caught in the negative thinking, “I’m not good enough” or “I always make bad decisions”.
But, I believe we learn from those failures and that those events motivate us to be better people.
That is where my job is centered. To help you through those times, to help redirect your thinking and behaviors so that you don’t get caught in the negative emotions and sickly physical symptoms.
This is a little about who I am and what I believe. If you feel that I am someone you might trust to accompany you on your journey, it would be my privilege to work with you.
