  • Counselor for Anxiety, Marriage & Career

    The week of February 20th, 2017. Might now be the time for you to move your life forward? Professional counseling and consulting may be a surer path than continuing along as you have been, completely on your own. Perhaps we can help. There is no charge for a short, initial telephone conversation. If you wish to schedule a session, simply call, text or email for appointment times. For many, making that first contact with a counselor or consultant can be challenging. We respect your courage in taking this first step towards making things better. We will listen carefully to your concerns. If what we do is a match for your needs, you may choose to schedule. If not, we may suggest other therapists who might be a better match for you.
