Make your life the way you want it to be

Do your kids pay more attention to a screen than life?

Do you need help, but don't know where to start?

You don't have to go through this alone.
Our society is one of cyber technology. Video games, cell phones, computers...we have come to depend on them. So where is the line? When does having fun with a game or using a phone to make a call become an obsession, or an addiction? Sometimes we all need help figuring this stuff out.

You may ask yourself if I am the right counselor for you. That is why I provide an initial 20 minute phone consultation for free. We can look at your situation together and figure out why things aren’t working. I know that finding the right counselor can provoke some anxiety; but it can also provide some relief. You may have been considering counseling for a long time or looking for just the right person. Finding someone you can trust to guide you through the process can feel overwhelming, especially when it comes to your children!

Know this: I am a gamer. After playing for years, I decided enough was enough. Now, I spend my spare time researching & advocating for less screen time. Playing video games, watching television, e-mail, texting. What I notice is that families are disconnected due to spending too much time in front of screens. Call for a free phone consultation - let's talk.
