Certified Wellness Counselor (CWC)

Therapeutic Approach

  • When you are looking for a counselor, I believe there are two important things:
    1.    Is my counselor competent – can they help me?
    2.    Does my counselor care about me?
    I would like to tell you how I would answer those questions.

    First, I have over 30 years’ experience in providing counseling. I have trained and supervised counselors for 25 years. I conduct research, write, and train other professional counselors. Most importantly, all of my work with clients is grounded in the latest best practices and evidence based ethical research.  You can read more about me on my biography page.
    Second, all the best clinical care in the world will not matter if your counselor does not care. My work with you will be in the context of a personal relationship because that is how people make significant changes in their lives.

    You will be treated with respect and your treatment is kept confidential. 
    I work with people who have:
    Relationship Issues
    Men's Issues
    Couples Issues
    Life Adjustment Issues
    And many more.
