“Happiness takes effort.
You don’t stumble upon it.
It doesn’t find you.
It isn’t a
constant
automatic
state of being.
You dig for it.
You demand it.
You refuse to allow moments
to eclipse it. You choose it.
And everday you have the option
to choose it again and again.
You decide.

Counseling Consultant: Productive Conversations

For me consultation means having conversations that work to dispel the myth that mental health is not worth nurturing and that obtaining mental health services is taboo.  Whether one on one, with a small group, or in front of a large group of people, I lead productive conversations that get us as a society further along the path to acknowledging, accepting, and nurturing our mental health.

Mental illness is not a sexy topic, but it is real and needs to be discussed.  I am not afraid of the conversation so I invite others to chime in and give voice to the subject.

From the workplace to the classroom, the church home to the nursing home, from counseling departments to police departments I provide workshops, professional development, training, and speaking series so that together we can pull back the curtain on mental illness, one conversation at a time.
