Wishing Wellness Counseling and Coaching

I provide individual therapy to all ages – children, teens, adults, and geriatrics. I do not currently offer family or couple’s therapy.

It takes great courage to reach out for counseling support, and I am so glad you are here! Thank you for allowing me the honor of hearing your story, healing your heart, and helping you reconnect with your best self. You have probably talked to many friends and family about the issues that led you to seek counseling. What makes counseling different, besides the clinical expertise of the therapist, is that here you don’t have to worry about keeping secrets, being judged or punished, being told I’m too busy to listen, hearing that you need to just “buck up” or get over it, or have your feelings argued, rejected, or abandoned. Here you will find a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, expert guidance, practical tools, and validation. Does that sound helpful? Then let’s do this.

Together we will take a brief journey through your past and present experiences, with a focus on how those events and feelings are impacting you in the here-and-now. You are the expert on you, and I am the expert on how to help you embrace and improve yourself and how you interact with and experience your world. Over the course of therapy we will endeavor to:

  • Identify your personal goals, short and long term
  • Establish or strengthen your current support system
  • Explore unhelpful or self-sabotaging coping skills
  • Identify and increase what has worked well in the past
  • Discover new or reconnect with healthy coping strategies
  • Build communication skills to improve current relationships
  • Increase self-awareness and self-compassion
  • Understand and embrace your core personality traits

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I take a very hands-on approach to helping you not just solve problems, but create solutions.  We’ll employ practical skills therapy models like:

  • Cognitive Behavioral
  • Solution-Focused
  • Narrative/Play
  • Faith-based by request

Using these models, I’ll help you feel back in control of your thoughts, feelings, and relationships so you can better manage whatever comes your way. You’ve been given this life. Let’s work together to make your wishes and wellness become your reality.
