At Changing Perceptions, our counselors have a variety of approaches and backgrounds to meet your needs. We all believe in working with our clients as whole individuals, capable of change and self-reliance, rather than a medical model that simply diagnoses a problem and treats symptoms. We also professionally collaborate to ensure we're meeting the needs of our clients by discussing additional resources, approaches, and interventions which may be helpful.   To learn about our counselors, read below then click on the provided link to more about their approach and specialties.  We look forward to being apart of your journey!
