"My counseling style in working with you is to respect that the solution to your problem lies within YOU and not in me telling you what to do. I want you to be able to discover the power that comes from honoring and acting upon your own intuition. The principles of Adlerian Psychology that I use are important in identifying what private logic from your past maybe still blocking your life path today. I especially help you explore the four C's of a thriving relationship--to feel Capable to face life challenges, , that you Count to others, and that you have the Courage to speak your mind and get your needs met. Most of all I will encourage you to have healthier relationships to increase positive social Connection with others. "

Courage to Face Life Challenges
Connection to Find a New Path

“Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole person.”
- Maya Angelou

"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."
- Winston Churchill

“One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest. ”
- Maya Angelou

"Meanings are not determined by situations, but we determine ourselves by the meanings we give to situations."
- Alfred Adler

"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."
- Norman Vincent Peale
