I am an experienced counselor and in my sessions, I encourage my clients to discuss personal issues in a private setting that assures confidentiality and provides the comfort of meeting with a caring and experienced professional who can help them identify stressors and constructive ways to cope.

Counseling is completely confidential, and my clients are assured they will have privacy. Family members are not notified that a client is receiving counseling, unless a client requests such contact and signs a release permitting it. The only exception I make is when a client poses a risk to self or others.

I have found that typical concerns in Personal Counseling include the following:

  • Confusion, anxiety, or depression
  • Mood variability
  • Needing help with an important decision
  • Loneliness
  • Adjusting to living away from family
  • Friendship problems
  • Romantic concerns
  • Family concerns – including divorce
  • Compulsive eating
  • Self-destructive use of alcohol or drugs
  • Loss of a relationship
  • Balancing academics or work and social needs
  • Shyness
  • Illness or death of a friend or family member
  • Personal trauma
