Counseling and Therapy Specialties
Located in a comfortable and private office in downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I provide a safe and confidential place for you to come and to be yourself. A place where you can ask those questions that you might be too embarrassed or hesitant to ask someone else. I am emotionally present, responsive, have a calming nature, and I listen carefully and without judgment to help you find solutions that you may have been unable to find on your own.
Counseling sessions are a place to explore your relationships, find clarification to something that may be confusing to you, and come to a better understanding of yourself. My focus is very positive, and my belief is that human beings are very resilient. I seek to understand what is most important for you to work on so that your experience with counseling is successful.
