Counseling is more than just talking about problems. It’s about giving you the tools to live a healthier, happier life and to honor the important relationships you share with others.You also need to feel comfortable with the family therapist you choose to work with you.
When you come in, we will talk about what is concerning you and then create a plan to help you get on the path to better over all mental health, healthy communication with others, and improved relationships with others.If you don't feel that therapy at that point is right for you, I'll be happy to provide you with the proper referrals and resources to help you on the right path.

The first session begins with filing out the initial paperwork and answering questions about therapeutic treatment. Getting started with family therapy can seem daunting, especially if you are experiencing difficulties in your life.
Please feel free to ask any questions that come to mind as the initial assessment takes place, or during any other time throughout the treatment process, I'm happy to answer and discuss any and all ideas and questions you may have.
