Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Dealing with anxiety, depression, or just not knowing how to feel happy? Therapy can be an effective tool to provide clarity for individual struggles and gain valuable insight on how to tackle those struggles. The goal is to not keep you in counseling forever, the goal is to walk with you, support you, and guide you in learning some effective coping to move forward in healing and seek growth. My role as your counselor is to show you a new perspective and help hold you accountable. During tough times it is easy to lose sight of our strengths and instead focus on what we may perceive as our weaknesses and our inability to change. By being in counseling you can learn to lean more on your strengths and focus on the ability to change.

Results from EMDR can be seen in a few sessions, without the use of medication, and can be achieved with little talking during the session.
Christian counseling and secular counseling share some similar views; to help people overcome their problems, find joy, purpose, and meaning in life, and to guide in becoming well-adjusted individuals, both mentally and emotionally. Christian counseling utilizes the Bible and prayer as a guide and reference during the counseling process. Any counseling service can incorporate faith-based counseling upon request.
