Goals of Steppingstone Counseling

The central goal that I have in meeting with my clients is to assist them in finding more happiness and freedom in their lives. The intention I have is to explore with you your desire to have a more healthy balance in the emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical aspects of your life.


 A central question that I keep in mind is: ”How can I be helpful?” I encourage my clients to make overall goals for our counseling relationship as well as for each appointment. When I meet with my clients, my hope is to create together an atmosphere of safety, respect and trust. My focus is to encourage my clients’ exploration of their own personal power, wisdom and resources for understanding, healing and happiness.

I provide child, individual, couple and family counseling and psychotherapy.
