"I have wept in the night
  for the shortness of sight,

that to somebody's need
made me blind;

But I never have yet
felt a twinge of regret,
for being a little too kind."

Dear Friend:

Welcome!  I'm glad you have found my website! 
Many people think that only a certain "type" of person needs counseling, someone who fits a certain category;
however, that line of thinking is very far from the truth.  In times of family crisis, illness, marriage breakdown,
or other stress factors, any person may benefit from talking to a caring professional, who can offer insights or
a perspective different from their own.

Counseling can benefit:

  • PARENTS struggling with the challenges of being good parents;
  • TEENAGERS to help equip them with skills to cope with myriad issues they face;
  • YOUNG CHILDREN experiencing pain in childhood stresses;
  • Marriage enrichment counseling can help MARRIED COUPLES keep the relationship growing & thriving;
  • Couples experiencing TROUBLED MARRIAGES;
  • Persons going through DIVORCE;
  • ENGAGED COUPLES for counsel they may implement to get their marriage off to a good start;
  • BEREAVED PERSONS following death of a loved one, miscarriage, or abortion;
  • Anyone suffering from DEPRESSION;
  • THOSE HURTING from personal loss – of health; of a relationship; of focus; of purity; of assurance; of hope . . . 
Do you (or does someone you know) fit any of the categories listed?
I’d like to help!
