At times during that process it will be important to revisit things from the past that have impacted the present and can shape the future.  As a counselor it is my goal to support you in the  journey toward change with compassion and understanding, while being direct and realistic. I understand the unique characteristics of each person & will tailor my services to meet your needs, while remaining professional and authentic.”
