Counseling focuses on a specific issues, with an emphasis on problem solving and learning specific techniques to help you cope with problem areas in your life.Counseling can help you uncover and release sources of pain, fear and anger in a safe, private and confidential office setting. Recognizing the underlying patterns of thinking, identifying what you can control, releasing that over which you have no control, will help you become aware of how these patterns affect your relationships and view of the your world. Learning new healthier ways to think and interact in your life situation is one of the goals in some therapeutic approaches.Choosing a counselor is a very important personal decision. Many of my clients are referred to my practice by other satisfied clients. Recommendations from former clients and medical professionals have helped build a strong practice.Feedback is welcomed, appreciated and integrated into my practice to the best of my ability. Counseling is covered by most insurance carriers under mental health benefits. Fees are available upon request. Contact your insurance carrier or Employee Assistance Program.
