Welcome to Strive Health Psychology. I am a Licensed Clinical Health Psychologist who specializes in the mind-body connection through talk therapy. We will explore the way stress affects the physical body and vice versa. Treatment can include traditional psychological concerns, pain management, and sport psychology. My mantra is “Faith, Fortitude, and Grace.” FAITH in the ability to overcome adversity, FORTITUDE to keep moving forward, and GRACE in the ongoing cultivation of strength in character. I believe that it takes conscious effort to self-improve and that the capacity for growth is infinite. Focus and resilience can be nurtured and cultivated, which is the foundation of the strength-based therapy that I provide. I have experience working with collegiate, Olympic, and professional athletes, ranging from X-Games competitors to the Green Bay Packers. I have worked in hospitals, medical clinics, addiction treatment facilities, and academia. Neurofeedback and biofeedback can be incorporated into talk therapy sessions. A registered animal-assisted therapy dog (a disabled, hypoallergenic Shih-Tzu) can also be involved in the therapeutic process, offering warmth and support to those who work with me. Attention will be devoted to perseverance, growth, and resilience, to transform and thrive.
