Looking for guidance when life situations are overwhelming is a sign of health and maturity. I believe in emphasizing and building on strengths and connecting with abilities with which you may have lost connection. My commitment to you is to be active in the process of your discovery in counseling. I will give you input and observations and will not just be a passive listener. Together, we can find solutions to your concerns. You CAN turn things around and make progress.
