Somewhere within, you recognize a growing consciousness that lets you know that you hurt and need help. This awareness is the first step in your therapeutic journey. The real or perceived problems present in your life may cause you to feel uneasy, but they can become an opportunity to learn and heal. In deciding to enter therapy, you choose a path leading to an enlarged life.

I have been associated with Humanistic Counseling Center for the past 27 years, prior to which I was both a teacher and school counselor. My work is to provide a safe, protected space where you can talk about positive and negative events with openness and trust. I believe that many of the answers to your questions are already inside you. My job is to help you become more conscious of your answers and to listen to your own inner wisdom.

Therapy is a meeting between you and me. The journey that follows creates a bridge between your old self and a new sense of self which awaits you. Your lesson in this passage is to learn to love yourself along the way. This is the work.

We must be willing
to get rid of the life we have planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
— Joseph Campbell
