My Approach to Helping
Life is hard. Sometimes you just need a place to unpack what you've been through and try to make sense of it all. Anxiety, depression, sadness, regret, anger, pain, losses. It stacks up over time and you get tired. Fear sets in, hopelessness knocks at the door. You know there's a way through it all but you just can't find out what it is right now. Sometimes you just want to run away. Sometimes you just want to retreat, cover up in the bed, and hope it all goes away. Sometimes you're so tired of it all that you stay angry, bitter, and full of resentment. Wherever you are right now, it's ok. You just need a minute to breathe, and a safe place to feel all that you feel and work through it. At Believe, Hope, Inspire Wellness Services, LLC we offer you that safe place to unpack all that you've been carrying, sort it out, and try to make sense of it all. When you begin to heal, accepting all that you've been through, you can stand taller, more grounded, and decide where to go from here. What can you expect from therapy? Focusing on your strengths and exploring the qualities in you that keep you putting one foot in front of the other, we build on what you are doing well, add new tools to use to grow even stronger, and add a gentle, compassionate approach to all that you feel and expereince. As you grow stronger, you begin to believe the truth about how amazing you are, hope in a brighter future ahead, and look outward for ways you can be an inspiration to others and help them grow stronger too. Call today. It's time to start living your best life!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Couples who struggle after an affair or betrayal often require more intensive therapy. Using the Gottman Method in Treating Traumas and Affairs, we offer a Marathon Couples Therapy Intensive. These two sesssion intensives is also available to couples when traditional weekly sessions do not provide the time needed to move through the healing process in a more focused way. Marathon therapy allows the couple to slow down the therapy process and gain a deeper understanding in a less rushed, time-driven environment. Incorporating breaks and a lunch hour also refreshes the couple and lets them come back together with a renewed focus and make progress that sometimes doesn't happen as easily in weekly sessions. The first step is to sign for your first 3-hour intensive by calling 850.450.7223 or you can schedule on our website at www.believehopeinspire.com. It's really easy process. Don't wait another day. Just get started now.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
The decision to come to therapy can be a life changing one. Many people express that therapy was a turning point in their lives. It works well when there is a good match between you and your therapist. We hear regularly from our clients that they have sought out therapy in the past and have been disappointed at best or damanged by the process at worst. We end up with clients who almost gave up on therapy but were willing to try just one more time. At Believe, Hope, Inspire Wellness Services, LLC you will find acceptance, compassion, and genuine care for people. We believe that most people carry within them the power to solve the problems of life when given the skills they need. In life, we-don't-know-what-we-don't-know - and through the right counseling partnership people acquire new skills and grow stronger in their confidence. It also helps to have someone trained in trauma-informed therapy to help you piece together the protective factors you put in place when things were dangerous or difficult and figure out if you still need those defenses now. Maybe you have created a safe place but your body and mind continue to put up walls and be hesitatnt to trust again. We'll help you trace the root of patterns that you are using that you may not need anymore. As you unravel the bonds to past traumas, Self-esteem builds and a new hope is inspired. We see it happen over and over with so many people who choose to step out just one more time. Choose a therapist who believes in you and your right to decide your own future, and one who will give you a safe place to figure it all out. You'll find this perfect fit at Believe, Hope, Inspire Wellness Services LLC.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Believe, Hope, Inspire Wellness Services LLC was born out of my desire to reinvent myself and to help other people do the same. After 25 years with the US Postal Service as a secretary, I took an early retirement to explore the next phase of my life. I returned to college and earned my bachelors' and master's degrees in Social Work, and opened my own counseling and coaching practice after a two-year residency-like internship process. I reinvented myself - and I want others to know that it's possible to truly live their dream. It's not without challenges, but my goal is to ignite a spark of hope, and guide others to lay down old habits and mindsets that are holding them back. I can speak to you from my own personal experiences and feel confident that you too can live a bigger life, one that includes more of you. It's time to pull your chair up to the table of life and begin to let others know more fully who you are and what your dream about. We'll show you how to commit to the changes you need to make, talk about them to the people in your world, and be consistent in doing you so well that they begin to believe that you mean what you say. As you take more ownership of your life - like I did - others will know you better and make room for you. Some relationships may change and some may come to an end, but as you walk more fully in who you are you'll find others who are on the same journey. As you learn new skills, you can move forward, and I'd like to go on the journey with you. I hope you will partner with me today to live your life to the fullest.
