Are you overwhelmed with conflict? Do you feel at a loss regarding problems with your spouse or teen? Difficult times with those we love most can be one of life's most painful challenges. While problems with loved ones can be overwhelming, confusing, and leave us feeling distracted at work or school, there is hope for a new way of living. I specialize in helping young couples, adolescents, and their families. I work to help clients build strong connections, open communication, and trusting relationships with one another. I would love the opportunity to meet you and hear your story today!

In addition to helping clients understand their relationships with other people, I also help individuals work through the emotional aspects of their sport and sport-performance. As athletes, we are taught from an early age to "push through," ignore the pain ("no pain, no gain"), and to never show emotion.

While these mantras and "ways of being" serve us well in the physical aspects of our performance, they are often not the best way of dealing with the more global aspects of living life as an athlete. I aim to help athletes feeing burnt out, beat up, overwhelmed, or depressed.

Sammy Jo Diffendaffer's Groups

Under Pressure - Competitive Teen Athlete Group

Held on Sunday afternoons in the Fall, my athlete consultation groups are designed for competitive athletes looking to manage the pressures of elite-level sport competition and the balance of being both a competitive athlete and a teen. In this 8-week group we will identify some of the specific struggles of being an athlete in today's society including: social pressures, time management, academics, and healthy relationships with both friends and technology. The group aims to help connect athletes with other focused athletes in the DFW who are experiencing some of the same athletic, academic, and social pressures.
