Hi! Welcome to Progress Not Perfection Counseling!

Are you struggling with racing thoughts, a sense of panic, worrying about a lot of things all of the time? Do you find yourself with low motivation, feeling hopeless or nightmares and/or flashbacks about the past? Are you using alcohol or any other substance to cope with what you find yourself struggling with? If any of the above sounds like you, and you are here reading this, I am so PROUD of you for taking the step to seek help because let's face it, admitting you need help AND asking for it, is really hard. However, you are here now, so are you ready to start making some progress? 

Progress Not Perfection Counseling supports you in your healing journey by helping you to reach your goals in a safe and nonjudgemental space, one step at a time. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in NYS, and I am also a credentialed substance abuse counselor. I typically work with adults (18+) with mental health and/or substance abuse disorders.

If you are struggling, and are ready to get started, reach out to me and we can determine if we will be a good fit. This is your first step, and if reading this is the best you can do today, that is OKAY, feel free to reach out when you are ready to make the next step towards your healing.
