What is BSB Counseling about?

Building Strength Back focuses on the resiliency people have, rather than focusing on the negative and stressful things that life brings. No one is defined by what happens to them and this idea focuses on the strength we all still have- it's just a matter of sparking it again.


Welcome! Thank you for being brave.

The biggest drive for change happens when people feel fed up with chaos. Are you feeling stuck where it seems unmanageable to be a different life for you? When people feel overwhelmed- it can bring the strongest sense to truly connect to someone. If you're searching, give it a chance. It's too much to keep it all in. You deserve that & the opportunity to be heard.


 It is my vision to help others when they desire the change for better. The desire to push for better days ahead becomes greater than staying stuck. I am honored to be part of recovery in gaining some control, relief, and life back- as everyone deserves to have that inner peace and balance.

Make the step forward.
