When children argue, tantrum, cry easily, or yell it can be stressful for the whole family. As parents, we can feel overwhelmed or worried about the future. If our child has experienced a trauma, we can be heartbroken and at a loss for how to help them heal. Sometimes we wonder if our child’s issues are our fault, or why our relationship isn’t as warm and supportive as we imagined. We can even be upset by our own anger with our child. Our children can feel like they “aren’t good” at getting along, or they can be confused about their own emotions. As a family, we may not be able to do things we want to like going out to restaurants.

'The first duty of love is to listen.' When someone truly listens the problems come to light and can be healed, resolved. Your unique capabilities and telling of your story in the ways you choose to resolve what brings you here are highly valued in the counseling process. I may use assessments and diagnoses but may also help with adjustment or not need to label. I assess the problem and offer researched solutions proven to work. I use a variety of therapies, including a person centered approach and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also offer Equine and Canine Assisted therapy. I offer tele-therapy and remote video counseling.

My ideal client is one that is able to do three things. First, my ideal client should be one that is can acknowledge that he/she has an issue/issues that is/are getting in the way of allowing him/her to live a healthy lifestyle. Second, my ideal client is one that is able to take that first step to bringing themselves into therapy. If they have support, that would be even better for that will hopefully increase the chances of long term success. Finally, my ideal client will be one that is not just coming into sessions when they are required, but that they are doing the work outside sessions that is needed to have success.

If you struggle with relationship stress, communication issues, distrust, and disconnection, I am the therapist for you. If you need someone who is going to hold you accountable, and help you identify exactly where you want to go and come up with an effective plan to get you there, I can help. To me, there is no "one size fits all" approach to therapy, but am an expert at strategizing and can come up with a custom plan to meet your needs while taking into consideration that you know what you need most. Don't wait until you are so distant from another that you live more like roommates than lovers. Call today to set up a consult.

I have been in the profession of helping people for 36 years. It is my approach to treat the whole person not just the symptoms. In that regard we begin a process that resolves not only the symptoms they present to me, but returns to them the feeling of being alive and in command of their own lives in a fashion that allows them to have healthy relationships, function well in their jobs and work, and have a positive sense of themselves.

Our therapists all work from a relational and insight oriented approach. We believe that we were all created for connection and that our woundedness often gets in the way of this connectedness, whether it be to God or to others. Deep, intensive counseling can help heal this woundedness so that connections are more honest, genuine, and whole. It should also leave you with a deeper sense of self and identity, so that you can interact in healthy ways with the world around you.

Deciding to go to therapy isn't an easy decision, but it certainly is a courageous move. Our world often beats us down and tells us that we should be able to deal with struggles on our own. Fortunately, we are made to walk through life's struggles together. I consider it an honor to walk with you and to help you work through challenges that are keeping you from experiencing life the way you deserve. In therapy, I use a positive, strengths based approach to help you reach your goals.

Welcome! I believe our best work is created in a collaborative spirit; this is why I choose to coach over therapy. We each have personal strengths. Let’s utilize yours to stabilize your weaknesses while we work through your present transition. Life comes at us fast. Sometimes, we need someone beside us to remind us we do have what we need inside, if we know where to look. Often times it’s just a matter of finding a bit of clarity and setting goals. In our work together we’ll strive to ensure you reach success in practicing new skills and attain new heights. It’s time to define that life desired. What is your True North?

Being stuck in your problems can feel overwhelming and it becomes difficult to overcome these problems and feelings associated with them on your own. As Albert Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.“ Allow me to help you navigate your personal and relational struggles through my collaborative therapeutic approach that is tailor made to your personal goals because everyone has a different perspective and past experiences.

The couples, individuals, and families I work with bring a myriad of issues including communication differences, sex and sexuality, life transitions, anxiety, multicultural issues, trauma, ADHD, eating disorders, and depression. Being able to come alongside to help them live to their full potential with complete freedom from roadblocks and mental/emotional issues is my passion. I do this through teaching emotional, body and mind awareness, everyday coping strategies, and working through some of the areas where they may be feeling "stuck."

Oppositional Defiance (ODD) Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Gainesville or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Gainesville, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Gainesville.
