First, just let me say, “Well done” to you for being on this site and looking through your options. It can be challenging to sort out when, where and how to go about getting support when things in life get difficult. My hope is that somewhere on this website you will find information to help you make the decision to give us a call and talk more about how we can help you get to a better place in your life.
I am a clinical performance psychologist, which is just to say that I have a background in sport/performance psychology and have also been trained to address significant mental health concerns. I am fascinated by the brain and how it is changed by experiences- both good and bad, and how, with purposeful intervention, we can work to shape the effect of those experiences. I have worked with military and law enforcement professionals as well as collegiate athletes at all levels to strengthen their brain's ability to handle pressure, chaos, and uncertainty. I have also been approached by individuals who are struggling to effectively transition to a new place in life.
My goal with anyone who comes to see me is to address the effects of life events that may have left you feeling anxious or depressed to post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I will work with you to find the most effective way to address the concerns and distress you are experiencing that interfere with your relationships and overall life satisfaction. Reducing stress, anxiety, and symptoms of depression are the initial goals, and then reaching into the painful darkness to bring light and healing while leaning on those effective coping strategies are the ultimate goals.
In addition to PTSD and related struggles, I meet with individuals who are struggling with any of the following issues:
- Retirement or Life Transitions
- Managing Stress Effectively
- Compassion Fatigue
- Anxiety (with or without a clear cause)
- Feeling “not yourself” or otherwise out of sorts- even if you don’t know why
- Managing attention- increasing concentration and focus
- Athletic or work performance- things aren’t going as well you would like, or think you are capable of accomplishing
Please feel free to call for a consultation. You will not be wasting anyone’s time by calling just to see what coming to therapy might be like for you. When you call, you can ask any questions you have about how therapy could work for you, or what it is like to come in and talk about hard things.
