I love lots of different things: motorcycles, basketball, coffee, great books…..
Something in me comes alive while on the water, fishing rod in hand, my prize unseen beneath me, prowling the deep darkness. I think that is also why I love counseling. Searching the depths of the self in order to find, catch, and admire what lies beneath the surface of awareness. My world came crashing down when I was 19. Pain, fear, confusion, anger. These were my constant companions for a long season. This was when I began my own journey of healing with a gifted and caring therapist. Counseling for me was and is beautiful and terrifying. And extremely helpful. I will help you grow in self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-love. Together, we will stand at the edge of your own story, eagerness in hand, anticipating what lies just beneath your pain, hopes, loves, and dreams. As we do so, you will see what is behind your uncomfortable feelings, relational struggles, or unwanted behaviors. Confusion will give way to clarity. Chaos will develop into thoughtful categories. And you will learn to catch and hold onto hope, purpose, and love.
