New Hope Counseling Services is based on the belief that each individual is unique, and that the client's' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs through relationally-based counseling, combining traditional counseling services with state-of-the-art techniques such as neurofeedback, and creative therapies like art, play therapy, and sand tray, in order to meet the needs of each unique individual.
I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust.
"Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so powerful as hope.
With hope, one can think, one can work, one can dream.
If you have hope, you have everything. "
