Make yourself a priority once in a while. It's not selfish. It's necessary.
- Karen A. Barquiran


TALKING, AKA COUNSELING, helps you understand why you do the things you do, why you feel the way you do, and how your thoughts are affecting you.

Without talking and reaching out for a new perspective when we are struggling, we tend to act “insane according” to Albert Einstein. Meaning we repeat the same actions over and over expecting different results.

So are you ready for different results?

Let’s TEAM TOGETHER AND TALK so you can:

  • FEEL GOOD AGAIN rather than living in an unhappy groundhog day.
  • UNDERSTAND YOUR PROBLEMS. You will feel in control rather than them controlling you.
  • Learn to LIKE YOUR FEELINGS rather than hate them.
  • Create a life where you PUT YOURSELF FIRST (at least sometimes).
  • Get rid of all those crappy thoughts, icky feelings, not so great relationships, and other stuff that is getting in the way of a HAPPY LIFE.
  • Figure out how to INCREASE SATISFACTION with your relationships, work, and most importantly yourself.
  • Identify what things YOU ARE ROCKING and what things are not working.

Please contact me today and let's get to work.

So Why Teaming Together Counseling?

Well, because I am a huge sports fan who thinks that teamwork makes the dream work and that there is no "i" in team.

Ok, enough with the corny sports quotes, but really teammates help you grow, help you understand yourself better, celebrate wins with you, hold you accountable, motivate you to be your best, and most of all they pick you up when you fall down. That is what I am here for! To be YOUR TEAMMATE!

I am ready to be your understanding, motivating, and assisting teammate when you are ready!
