What's the value of a counseling relationship?
Much of life's heartaches and struggles occur in the context of human relationships. As such, healing also takes place in the context of relationship. A counseling relationship affords clients the space to be themselves without judgment, ridicule, or shaming while encouraging compassion and growth.

It is so incredibly important for you to feel comfortable with the counselor you choose to work with. As a counselor, I bring my clinical training and experience into the counseling relationship as a means of bringing hope and healing in the context of relationship.
