Specialized Areas of Focus


Athletes are under pressure to perform at high intensity levels. With counseling, athletes can work to manage and cope with the stress and pressure of competition, improve their mental focus and confidence, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles and setbacks. Performance psychology focuses on the mental aspects of sports and aims to improve an athlete's performance by enhancing their mindset, motivation, and resilience. Mental health is also an important aspect of working with athletes as mental health issues that can affect their performance and overall well-being. By addressing both mental health and performance psychology, I can help you achieve your full potential both on and off the field. 

Work-Family Balance

Work-family conflict highlights the tension that exists between work and family roles. Sometimes it is difficult to transition between work and family as work can feel like it gets in the way, thereby creating conflict in the family. Understanding the factors that lead to conflict and how to manage them can help reduce the conflict and restore a sense of balance.

Communication Restoration

Are you struggling to feel heard in your relationship? Sometimes it can be hard to find the right words to express how you really feel, which leads your partner to pull away. This can leave you feeling alone, angry, resentful, and enraged. This does not have to define your relationship as we can work to restore healthy communication. 


Mixed Race & Multi-Cultural Relationships

Bringing together different cultures and backgrounds can feel amazing when it is just the two of you. However, when life gets complicated, such as caring for a mixed race child, facing society's or familial judgment, or talking about race and racial issues within the relationship makes the possible begin to feel impossible. We can explore these and other difficult conversations in a safe space to help keep the love that originally brought you two together.

Disordered Eating & Eating Disorders

Disordered eating can eventually grow into an eating disorder. Living a "healthy" lifestyle to the point that it begins to consume you can be challenging. Eating disorders are complex mental health conditions that can have serious physical, emotional, and psychological consequences. An eating disorder can negatively impact your relationships, level of functioning at work and/or school, and overall connection with life and others. 

Workaholism & Substance Use

Is your addiction to work and/or substance use interfering with your productivity and/or relationships? Sometimes we feel the need to engage in work to escape the realities of life. The use of substances (i.e., alcohol, cocaine, heroin) may also play a role whether it is combined with working or on its own.
