Personal Comments 
My passion for counseling through psychotherapy was born from the plain and simple observation that people need help sometimes.  Whether the troubles they face is the result of their own doing or misfortune has struck them at a critical point in their life, or both; I wish to be an agent of positive change.  I take a holistic approach to therapy, fully cognizant that the majority of life happens outside of the therapy room.  This is why I incorporate, if available and with client permission, information from physicians and mentors.  It is also the reason why I encourage my clients to reach out to the people they find give meaning and encouragement to their lives.


Please email me or call Stay Designated Inc. if I can answer any questions for you.  It would be a blessing to work with you.
