However, 1st an Important Step! In my over 20 years of doing this work, I know that counseling is a professional relationship where if we don't "click," it doesn't work. It matters to connect and be sure.
That's why I offer a no charge Complimentary Intro-Consultation. You can tell me what has you stuck.

I use data-driven psycho-educational tools that not only work in session, but more importantly, back at home where it really counts. Counts so you and your family can find success to:
