Life sometimes can be challenging and over whelming. Many who attempt to navigate the course of life are sometimes discouraged, worried, and left with feeling of hopelessness.

Jeanette Jacobs (Psy.D.) - 22 Years Experience

Before talking about myself, I want to say this: By the time someone reaches out for help, they are usually not only stuck but in considerable distress. It isn't easy to acknowledge when we are struggling, and sometimes we think, “If only I was stronger / smarter / tougher / more something, I wouldn't be in this situation or need therapy.” This is not only an inappropriate thought, it's unfair. Nobody gets through life without needing help at one time or another, and reaching out for help is a sign of strength! It's is an acknowledgment that we value and are invested in ourselves, that our health and well-being is priceless...

Robyn Smith-McLeish (MSW, LCSW, CCTP) - 9 Years Experience

Imagine looking in the mirror, and loving the reflection staring back at you. What would it feel like to not feel burden by anxiety, depression, confusion, anger, and grief? What would it feel like to see confidence, calmness, clarity, compassion, courage, and joy in your reflection? In life, we experience a lot of joyful moments that allow us to feel grateful for what we have, but then there are those painful, confusing and overwhelming moments that really burdens us and we wonder if we will ever feel peace, confidence, and happiness again. We look in the mirror and at times cannot recognize the person staring back at us and we wonder, "how did I get to this point in my life, and can I get past it?" It can be scary to reach out to a counselor because you worry "what does it mean if I am in counseling", or "can a counselor really help me be happy again?" I'm here to say, "yes I can help you and yes, you can be happy again"...

Maybe you've lost that initial spark in your relationship and are desperately trying to get that feeling back. Or stuck in a rut at your job and just want to quit. You overthink everything and somehow you accomplish nothing. Life has got you overwhelmed, exhausted, unmotivated, hopeless and wondering why you even get out of bed in the morning...
