Better Path Counseling

“There are no wrong turnings. Only paths we had not known we were meant to walk.” ― Guy Gavriel Kay, Tigana

Reaching out for help isn't always easy. Connecting with a therapist you trust is crucial for the success of the therapeutic process.

We strive to meet our clients' emotional needs in order to understand their world-views, experiences and struggles. We may utilize cognitive behavioral, EMDR, CPT, solution-focused, and supportive therapies to assist individuals and families in achieving their goals.

It is a privilege to accompany a client towards a journey of better health. We seek to create a collaborative bond within the counseling relationship. Therapy can create the spark needed to pursue positive change in the direction of our client's lives.

We provide a complimentary 10-15 minute phone consultation to determine if our therapy services are suitable for you. Our number is (619) 356-8982.
