Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent event I was found of was a vacation to Gatlinburg TN with my wife and two children.  It was enjoyable as we were able to spend time together in a peaceful setting.  As a family , had the time to talk about likes and dislikes and discuss matters that were important to use individually and as a family.  My most enjoyable time was watching the sunrise in the mornings over the mountains with my wife.   Wonderful. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I would look for an experienced counselor who they feel they can connect with.  I counselor who understands the importance of building a professional relationship with the client.   Change comes from relationships. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

A customer should examine the areas of experience a counselor presents.  Counselors are aware of their specialties and have experience they can pull from to address individual needs.  Customers should also be aware of (in general) what areas they would like to be addressed and match with the counselors area of focus.  Customers should always select Licensed Counselors as they have a Code of Conduct which they are required to abide by when providing Professional Counseling services.
