Effective Tools and Goals

Family Therapy.  Resolving family conflict, divorce recovery, teen adjustment.

You will be equipped with simple tools to recall in hot button circumstances with family, friends, and coworkers.  Anger management can help de-escalate situations and change habits.  Anger is a secondary emotion and always has underlying, more vulnerable feelings which need to be understood.  Family conflict and teen adjustment are addressed with compassion and validation of each family member.  Therapy is not about taking sides, but about surfacing the truth according to each client.  Clients return over the years as life changes, and you are remembered.  Counseling and healing are related to real relationship, and we are not healed thru insight alone.

Adolescence...most difficult stage of life

Teen Counseling. Compassion. They want you to intervene.


Your teen needs you to help and understand their feelings and concerns.  Please intervene to seek help if your child shows symptoms of anxiety, depression, eating disorder, isolation, anger, or addiction.  Adolescence is the most stressful stage due to academic, social, hormonal, and family conflict issues.  Counseling in Houston, Counselor, Teen Counseling.

Grief, Loneliness. Help in the Isolation.


Sharing painful experiences takes courage to reach out for help.  Compassion and encouragement is important in your ability to move forward.  Your feelings need to be understood, and a helpful plan for healing.  Grief has a life of its own, and we are designed to heal.  Eventually, you will be ready to move forward without looking back emotionally.  You will be able to engage more fully as you heal.  You may feel invisible during this period, and we can help you thru it.
