Hello, thank you for visiting Better Path Family Counseling and Consulting, PLLC. As our sessions will not be focused on me, of course, I wanted to take time to share a little about who I am. Gone are the days when you go see your therapist/counselor/life coach and you know little to nothing about their life and who they are. I beleive that it is healthy to know a little about the professional you will be sharing the delicate aspects of your life with. Knowing a little bit more about your mental healthcare provider helps to break the ice, so to speak,  and lets you know we are all human with life experiences, challenges, hard falls, and triumphant victories. As owner of Better Path Family Counseling and Consulting, I want you to know I care very much about you and your family's need and am passionate about what I do daily as a therapist, counselor, and coach.

About Me Personally:

Why Am I Passionate About Therapy, Counseling, and Coaching?
What led me into this line of work was my own past trauma and abuse I faced as a child and adolescent against my own will. In my late teens I realized I  wanted to help others overcome struggles, trauma, losses, and hardships in life, as I was navigating through mine and learning how to overcome my own. Now lets fast forward to the present day. My desire is to professionally assist you and your loved ones in metaphorically turning your misfortune into a great fortune, and your losses into substantial gains that only you can fully understand and appreciate when it's all said and done because you will be the one looking back say, "I did it! I made it to the other side of the mountain!" It takes work, but you can do it. That change you desire begins with you. Say good bye to your old way of living, shift out of your old ways of approaching life, discover your strength, and begin your Better Path Today!
