If you're struggling, you owe it to yourself and those around you - your partner , children, colleagues, friends - to take a step toward change. If you're like many women, you are in a constant balancing act. Whether your struggle is managing the day-to-day stresses of life or a more specific concern, talking with someone who will really listen, getting support, and having help to consider your options can make a tremendous difference.

Most of us want to be good people who have our needs met and enjoy our family and friends. Most of us struggle at times to get there. We need a little help: Someone to listen, help us think things through, or to give us some coaching about life and relationships. Or maybe we are in serious trouble and really need professional help. Taking that next step is often scary. For 30 years, Mark has helped 1000s. 85-90% of his clients say they are very satisfied with their counseling. He's genuine, accepting, effective. Ready to take that step?

We all get wounded in the battles of life -- some of us in tragically dramatic ways, and others of us bleed through the piercings of a hundred small injuries. Let me help you get to the core of the struggles and back on the road to living your life again. Perhaps it is an addiction you can't seem to get rid of, or that haunting sense of inadequacy or loneliness. It may be anxiety or depression, gender identity issues, or past trauma. Maybe for you a relationship you value has have become difficult or painful.

Have you been suffering in silence or struggling with relationships? Know that hope is near. We all have experienced pain that if left untreated, can keep us trapped, inhibiting our ability to enjoy life and genuinely connect with others. There are three main areas that are near and dear to my heart: Children who’ve gone through adverse life experiences, women having difficulty navigating life stages, and victims or survivors of betrayal trauma: emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Know that it will take time to heal, courage to face the reality of your experience, and a steady commitment to your own healing.

I'm not the expert on your life, YOU are. With the perspective of an outside observer and insight born of experience, I seek to help you map out a path to pursue healing and wholeness. I believe that ignoring your heart is as dangerous as following your heart. I instead seek to help you understand what's happening in your heart, so you can explore your inner world and respond out of a place of self-awareness and growth.

I want to be the person to left up those I partner with to build a more fulfilling life for themselves.
Since beginning my time as a therapist, I have seen and continue to see those impacted by all sorts of traumatic events that have occurred in their lives. This causes difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem problems, and disruptions within relationships. I want to help those who are struggling with these issues make sense of their situation, the reasons for why they do what they do, and work toward better functioning within their lives and relationships.

Since 2014 I have worked with couples through Focus on the Family's Hope Restored Marriage Intensives.
My ideal client to work with is one who comes ready to look at the why behind the what, going deeper to understand the roots that cause one to act and think the way they do. The purpose and goal in being curious about the roots is to heal from the wounds and deep-rooted beliefs about ourselves and the world that we have picked up along our own journey in life. The benefit of this work is to live more freely in the Truth of who we were created to be, not allowing fear and past wounds to control one’s life. This growth can equip and lead to more safe, connected, and healthy relationships with ourselves and our loved ones.

I have personal and professional experience and training in many areas such as brain injury, dysautonomia, anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma, self esteem, couples and relationships, and more.
Reaching out for help can be difficult and intimidating. The truth, however, is that we are all human and there comes a time in everyone's life where we need help. Maybe we just need a non-judgmental, open minded, trustworthy person that we can sit down and talk to. Someone that can really listen and help to sort out our feelings and our situation. Someone who can help to make better sense of what is going on and maybe even help to come up with a plan for changing it.

What type of Carthage mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Carthage?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
