Are you a student athlete who desires to do well on & off the field? You can likely relate to this unique student athlete challenge: You’re a student of the game AND you’re a full-time academic student. You're putting in the work on the field and in the classroom. Adding to this, you're facing the unexpected challenges of 2020. It can be unsettling. Everything seems a little up in the air. Season postponed, COVID testing, not getting the playing time you expected, adjusting to new teammates/coaching styles or generally feeling stuck in your head. You may be facing some challenges, but you've got grit. You're a goal getter.

Change is an inevitable part of life. Transitions are as natural as night and day. In nature we observe times when things move slowly without visable change - and then suddenly acceleration occurs followed by a transformation. I am a therapist/professional counselor who works with individuals ranging from childhood through late adulthood, couples, and families to assist them in finding personal growth, and work confidently through the natural transitions life brings. I recognize each client as unique and direct my counseling to the whole person; which attends to the body, mind, and spirit of each.

I am a home based therapist. I believe all children deserve a loving family that knows how to best parent them. While I do not have an "ideal client" per se, I do believe no child should be taken off alone to develop an attachment to me, the therapist. Children should attach and bond to their parents so therapy with foster and adopted children is most effective within the family. When working with older youth in foster care, individual therapy may be warranted, but I would prefer to work with the family whenever that is a viable option.

Counseling provides an opportunity for people to explore areas of their lives and relationships that may feel dissatisfying, difficult, or even painful. It takes courage for us to look at parts of ourselves and our relationships that are troubling, especially when we're not sure exactly where to begin or what's not feeling quite right. Therapy is a journey, a path toward developing a connection to our own deepest knowing and inner strengths. With increased awareness and internal supports, we feel more hope, strength and freedom to live as fully as possible.

Beginning therapy is an important decision and reflects your commitment to you. Taking this step will not only impact you, but others you interact with in all aspects of your life. I believe by nature a desire for relationships is a fundamental part of who we are. As Dr. Roberta Gilbert stated "the quality of relationships most often determines the quality of life." To have the relationship you wish for, you must have the best "you." An understanding of how your thoughts, feelings, and actions impact you and the world around you will give you the opportunity to have the relationships you wish for.
