Support That Makes a Difference

Family at a Beach


If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, life changes, aging, grief, or relationships, I can help.

I utilize an eclectic approach when helping you meet your counseling goals.  I believe in a focus on the whole person and an approach tailored to the needs of each individual.  The primary modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing.  


Are you considering a divorce but can't afford an attorney?

Struggling with tension and conflict within your family?

I provide family mediation services, including pre-suit divorce mediation.

People During Workshop


Hypnosis can help you with many of the challenges and goals you have. It is safe, effective, and has no side effects. Don't worry, it cannot be used to force you to do anything you would not agree to in a fully conscious state. 

Hypnosis can help with: Anxiety, stopping smoking, childbirth, fibromyalgia, past life regressions, phobias, stress, pain management, sports or academic performance, and more!

Emotional Support Animal Screenings and Assessments

Do you live with anxiety, depression or PTSD? You may be eligible for an emotional support animal. Emotional support animals provide comfort, boost self-esteem, increase social activity, promote feelings of safety, promote motivation, decrease symptoms, and promote a sense of purpose. 

I will provide the necessary documentation if you meet the criteria. Call today to schedule your appointment! 

Spiritually Diverse Counseling

Do you identify with or walk a path that does not incorporate mainstream beliefs?

New Pathways offers spiritually respectful counseling services that incorporate your individual path.  

We can include practices from diverse belief systems in order to support healing including rituals, tools and traditions.
