Me and my dog, Arwen.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I am also the Director of New Hope Counseling, Inc., which is a Christian Counseling private practice that has been serving MetroWest Massachusetts for over 20 years.
Yes I am a Christian Counselor. Does that mean I shove my religion down my client’s throats? No, because that’s unethical, and makes me sick to even think about the prospect of doing something so completely wrong. If someone wants to know about my faith, that’s fine, I’m more than happy to share, but otherwise, I keep it to myself, and I like it that way. 🙂
I have been helping couples, children, adolescents and adults for about 13 years now. I love what I do, and I am truly blessed to work with such amazing people over the course of my work. I love being able to show a couple how to communicate better, and then actually see them communciate better. I’ve saved couples from the brink of divorce, and I think the divorce rate is high enough, so if I can do lower that number even by a little, I’m cool with that!
