Imagine life is like a journey completely in your control but you feel stuck. Choices you make dictate life’s obstacles and they can be tricky. Life’s journey comes with no instruction pamphlet or ready-made companions. A path unfolds and you decide what to do and who to trust along the way. As you journey you begin to see things you want, potential companions, places you want to explore, and tools you can use to make travels simpler. There are so many choices to make with no time to stop and contemplate the best decision; you have to keep going by making choices every day, about everything. Decisions and deadlines do not wait. Consequences of decisions do not wait for preparations of readiness. Age does not determine how hard life can be nor deter reality. Whether you are age 5 or 95, you have to wake up daily and continue life’s journey, but it is not always an easy task. My theoretical orientation is Person-Centered Therapy and Gestalt Therapy. Let me be your Phoenix! I believe life’s tools are inside of us, self-actualization, self-trust, coping strategies, and the willingness to grow. We simply must explore them. At Rapunzel's Phoenix Counseling Services, I help toddlers, children, adolescents, adults, families, and the LGBTQIAPK community. Online Counseling Services are available upon request.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session is all about the assessment. Make sure your intake is complete from Grow Therapy and SimplePractice. It helps me get to know you and tells me more about what you need. In the Assessment, tell me what made you reach out. What do you want to see throughout your journey each session. The more honest you are the more we can achieve. I don't believe in judgment I believe in healing and moving forward to a happier you.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strength or the area I focus the most on is asking the right questions. Sessions will be used to be sure we focus on what is important to you. Many times people come into session trying to work on things others have told them are a problem. Are they a problem for you? Are they your priority? Is there something you need to work through before you can address what others are concerned about? Let's explore that.
