There is an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Going together is easier than it sounds. These times of the pandemic have given us a view of how hard navigating those difficulties can be. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I am also a registered nurse, and have worked in psychiatric settings for over 30 years. I work with adults in individual therapy and with people who need individual therapy as an adjunct to couples counseling. I am trained in EMDR.
