There Is Hope

Create The Life You Want Each Day, Forever

When a setback derails your life, I help you go from feeling vulnerable, alone, and worried to feeling successful, appreciated, and in-control. As a cognitive performance therapist, I developed a six-step, therapy roadmap called the Comeback Roadmap to help you rebuild your life after a major setback. You and I work closely together to follow the same steps that have helped so many of my clients rebound from challenges and thrive forever.

I help you

Come Back From Three Types of Major Setbacks


Your life can change with the speed of a second hand. One moment it's perfect and on track, and then it stumbles from a setback. I help you come back from three types of setbacks that can take over your life. When these setbacks rear their head, you may deny, blame, give up, hide, or lash out. But there is hope. 


Sports psychology and discover natural talents

Setback 1: Not Living Up To Your Potential

Get the most out of your talents and gifts as an athlete, performing artist, professional, or student. Go from feeling stagnant and frustrated to proud and accomplished.

"The sports mental skills I learned from you enabled me to breakthrough a year of under-performing in softball to being named First Team, All-SEC Conference."  Karly, Richmond, Virginia

Brain injury and chronic pain

Setback 2: Struggle With A Cognitive Disorder or Chronic Pain

Get your life back when you are faced with a brain injury or chronic pain from an illness, accident, stroke, aging or mental health condition. Go from feeling vulnerable and powerless to hopeful and renewed.

"I am so grateful. You helped me and my family start living a more meaningful life after my TBI."  Robert, Short Pump, Virginia

Setback 3: Inability To Sleep, and Feeling Exhausted Each Day

Get a sound night sleep and feel energized to take on the world. Go from feeling frustrated by tossing and turning throughout the night to feeling joy after a deep, peaceful sleep.

"Learning how to stop worrying at bedtime has helped me fall asleep in 15 minutes instead of three hours. What a relief.” Jamie, Midlothian, Virginia

I want to thank you for all of your continued support and encouragement over the past few years. I forgot what it was like to lower my race times. You helped me experience it again. I can’t tell you how much it has meant to me, and I can’t thank you enough.

You will also rate the quality of our sessions together to assure that I provide the best therapy relationship with you.

Thank you for the ArtsMind assessment. I learned a lot about why I sometimes doubt myself as a violinist. Other musicians are posting on our forum how much they enjoyed working with you. Thank you for being there for me.
