Dr. Button, with more than 35 years of counseling experience, since 1966, recounts his beginnings. “I started out in medical school and realized that my calling was to help people understand their feelings, problems and emotions. Today, I help people look at how they think, what their dreams mean to their lives, and what their thoughts – and beliefs – mean to them. It is when we are able to examine our belief systems that the most-powerful and lasting changes occur.”

Dr. Button helps people through every cycle of life. “My goal is to help you uncover the meaning of your life…to watch troubling symptoms subside, and to gain the strength and energy to pursue the goals in life you’ve always wanted. To me, counseling is about solutions, not problems…solutions that enable you to move forward and regain, or discover for the first time, your personal power to bring meaning into your life.”
