Embracing Change Counseling Services, LLC
Welcome! I am so happy that you are considering making a positive change in your life. Embracing Change Counseling Services, LLC is where you can have a safe space to be yourself and express your thoughts and feelings without judgment. I see a wide range of clients from age 6 to age 86. I especially enjoy working with young girls and women who have struggled with finding their confidence and using their voice to reveal their truth. I also have a special interest in working with kids and adults who have grown up in an alcoholic/addictive environment.
Embracing Change is proud to be part of a community of therapists dedicated to excellence in the profession and particularly focused on healing trauma of all kinds. Lighting a New Way Counseling Services, also at The Barn Office Center,is another of those organizations that we are pleased to be affiliated with.
