Are you a student athlete who wants to do well on & off the field? You're putting in the work on the field and in the classroom (plus facing the challenges of 2020). It can be unsettling. Everything may seem a little up in the air. Recruiting/eligibility concerns and seasons postponed, along with regular sport stuff! Everyone says you've got what it takes to be amazing, but you feel stuck in your head. You don't want to feel negative about your sport. You'd love to increase confidence, lower anxiety, sharpen focus, and stay composed on the court. You may be facing some challenges, but deep down you've got grit. You're a goal getter.

Somatic Experiencing™ (SE®) goes beyond typical talk therapy and can be a different therapeutic experience. Learning how the nervous system supports growth and healing from all types of trauma is an advantage with this modality. Exploring your biology rather than attaching to the biography of your experience supports curiosity with sensations & strengthens the capacity for your body to heal.

As we go through life it can become very challenging, overwhelming, and even scary. Sometimes we need emotional support to get us through the mishaps and worries of life. There is hope for our issues and problems we face. Working together we can bring about a connection of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior and help you understand your ability to bring peace and joy to your life. Sometimes change is hard but it takes strength and determination from you to make those changes. It takes courage to want to change and ask for help.

This is a time in which many are suffering from extreme anxiety having been given the order to 'Shelter in Place at Home.' As a mental health clinician I want to be available for those needing to use professional services and I am set up to take new clients for safe confidential online sessions or phone. It is especially difficult on those who have underlying emotional conditions that will become more symptomatic being in social isolation and having a sense of the unknown. I have been providing mental health therapy for thirty years and I am currently taking new clients including children and adolescents.

For many of us the hardest part about doing therapy is figuring out where to begin. The good news is that you don't have to know, all you have to do is start. One thing I've noticed in the time I've been doing this is that all roads seem to lead to the same place, so it doesn't matter where you start because eventually you will get wherever you need to go.
