Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, BCB
Learn how worries influence your behavior and abilities to perform at the levels you are capable of performing, whether in sports , test taking, or day to day stress management at work.
Are you a performer who devotes a large percentage of time to physically, strategically, technically training for a competition/performance but come game day doesn't feel the performance equals your true skills and abilities? Are you a student who studies hard, knows the material yet doesn't do well on the test, or a business person who has difficulty showing up in the boardroom? Non-performance mental factors are often the culprit. People spend a lot of time on physical or material preparation but rarely is time spent on customizing a mental training routine. Want to try a fresh start in reaching your goals?
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
We specialize in teens, anxiety, sports performance , grief, and parenting teens.
From the outside you are this high achieving teenager that meets everyone's expectations. But on the inside, you are silently anxious. You never feel good enough. You feel exhausted constantly worrying about what others think of you and dealing with your anxiety. You consistently push your emotions to the side to please others and try not to disappoint. Or you are a young adult feeling lonely, outgrowing old friendships, and feeling guilty wanting more reciprocity in your friendships. You feel nervous and anxious on making new friends for fear they won't like you.
Dr. Ramar Henderson
Pre-Licensed Professional, PhD, APCC, CRC
Life is full of peaks and valleys and we all could use some assistance. First, I want to thank you for being both bold and courageous while taking a positive step toward healing. We all live with some elements of personal, emotional, or physical pain, and helping people heal is something that I am passionate about. As a Black male APCC with a healthy racial identity, I am committed to serving communities that lack access and resources. While a generalist, my niche populations are athletes (i.e., all-levels & sports ), people struggling with depression and anxiety, persons with disabilities, and vocational rehabilitation.
Diego J. Hall
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
Additionally, I am trained in EMDR and Sports Psychology .
Are you ready to make a difference in your life? It is my hope that we will work together to unlock your inner potential. Many of us have dreams we leave on the back burner, as we pursue a conventional life. At times, we lose hope in the dream and it feels like the world is caving in around us. Externally we appear stable; hidden internally we may gain characteristics of anxiety and depression. My goal is to help you gain clarity in what you wish to achieve in this lifetime and to help you find the reason behind this uneasiness. Together, we can formulate a "roadmap" to navigate the unsteady, ever-changing, road of life.
Dr. Richard Trammel
EdD, MS, L3S-CT
As a sports psychologist, I have a unique practice in that I specialize in working with athletes who have the desire to take their game to the next level. Being a competitive athlete helps me relate to other competitive people in sports or business. My primary focus is on confidence building and the elimination of performance anxiety. I use a 3 tiered approach to training: Perspective Training, Mental Skills Training, and Applied Settings (if applicable at a sporting location). I am the only professional to offer that kind of travel service. We also offer Coaching Certification Programs for those who are interested in teaching.

Mona Jones Hypnotherapy
Certified in: Recovery support, ADHD, sports performance and LGBTQ issues, chronic pain relief and more using hypnotherapy,EFT and non-trance techniques.
I often hear, "I wish I'd found you sooner!" because my clients experience measurable change so quickly and effortlessly. As a Hypnotherapist I help clients access the power of their subconscious mind where the roots of the problem are stored to quickly resolve the past, eliminate mental road blocks, build self esteem and create new, positive automatic behaviors. Hypnosis is fun and relaxing--like a spa day for your brain that brings real and lasting change to your life. Kids and teens love it! Call for a free 15-minute phone consultation to learn how I can help.
At times I apply principles of sports psychology to other aspects of life.
I strive to be a therapist who is empathic and non-judgmental while utilizing insight to help patients to increase self-awareness. I have witnessed clients become more empathic towards themselves as well seeing their suffering decrease. Therapy can markedly improve the quality of clients' relationships, work, and play. An important aspect of therapy is looking at your feelings in the present moment or "here and now" with me. The therapeutic relationship itself helps heal and we will analyze it at times. I aim to create an environment where the client feels safe and free to express themselves to increase self awareness.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, ATR
My typical client struggles with anxiety which leads to difficulty performing at work, school, sports , or within relationships with others.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
Athletes or professionals, if you or someone you know struggles with anxiety, grief/loss or addiction, let me help! As a former collegiate athlete and current sports enthusiast, there are complexities that an athlete or professional experiences: pressures of in-game performance, managing high stress, season or career ending injuries, or life transitions after sports career ends. All of these can produce intense anxiety, grief/loss and addiction which can cause shameful, intrusive thought patterns. I focus on combating shame by expanding healthy coping strategies, increasing self kindness, and understanding family patterns.

Is online therapy a good option?

To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.
What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
