"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."

​                                    J. R. R. Tolkien

"There are things inside you that no one wants to face. Things that you keep secret, even from yourself. But secrets are funny. The things you try to hide always turn out to be the things you can't forget."



"Where did we come from...

...and where are we going?"


                             Unknown origin

“Most people yearn for one thing more than anything else: inner peace. Without it they have no lasting happiness or security.”  

                              Billy Graham

Often, people struggle to find balance, deeper connection, and meaningful expression or communication.  Sometimes we get caught in a life that looks comfortable, but internally we feel something is missing.  I value honesty, connection, and insightful dialogue.  We will walk a path of rich exploration to help discover your deepest needs and desires.  I will help you examine patterns of thoughts and behaviors that may be creating stagnancy and help you discover new ways of thriving and having more healthy relationships.

Helping our clients clarify their values and then live their lives based on their idiosyncratic values is the most important thing we can ever do as professional counselors. Let me say that another way.  Helping our clients really, truly know their own values, understand their own values, and then act on them in a consistent daily manner is what counseling is all about.

The term "holistic" gets tossed around these days but what does that really mean?  I partner with the client to evaluate his or her physical, mental, social, spiritual, and emotional life, looking for patterns of behavior that feel inconsistent. These inconsistencies can create cognitive dissonance, leading to frustration, anxiety or depression.  Living holistically means respecting all aspects of your self.
