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 12  on up.  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 teens 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.
