Struggling with Making a Major, Life-Changing Decision?
  • Deciding whether to stay in your relationship?
  • Trying to figure out what to do with your life?
  • Whether to keep your job or go back to school? 
  • Wondering how to handle a work situation?

Big, life-changing decisions are difficult to make.  Sometimes you agonize over what to do, or which road to take.  The thought of making the wrong decision is scary and the worry can keep you from making any decision.  I’ve counseled many people like you to help figure out which course of action to take.

Counseling for Guys Who Don’t like Counseling

Solution Focused Counseling works well for guys who wouldn’t normally go to counseling, because it’s more like coaching.  The counselor asks questions to help you put your own skills and ideas to better use.  Therefore, none of the touchy-feely stuff you see on TV.  We just figure out what to do to get things back on track so you can get on with it.
