Shawna Byrd, M.A., LMHC
Do you ever find yourself falling repeatedly into the same emotional or behavioral patterns?  Do these patterns keep you from achieving your goals?  Does it feel like you are sabotaging yourself?  Are you tired of feeling this way, or frustrated that you may never be able to accomplish what you desire in your life?

Shawna has helped many people like you.  She has the ability to help you identify and build the strengths you already have, and everyone has strengths!  Then she will help you use those strengths to achieve the results you want.  Some examples of issues she has successfully helped people overcome are: anxiety, anger, phobias, trauma from past experiences, depression, and addiction to drugs, alcohol or even food.  Other examples are loss of satisfying relationships or lack of satisfaction with your personal growth or career development.  She has achieved excellent results in helping clients with weight control and smoking cessation.  (For more information about Shawna, CLICK ON HER FACE)


 

 

Nicole Kratimenos, M.A., LMFT
If you are in trouble with the Department of Corrections or told off to get help with substance abuse or dual-diagnosis problems, Nicole can help.  She has many years experience working with the government agencies to help people who have gotten themselves in serious difficulties.  And, Nicole conducts counseling in Greek or Spanish as well as English. 
Or, maybe you have a child or teenager who looks as though he or she is headed for trouble.  Then, she can help even more.  Better to head off trouble with the law or school officials before something happens.
We don’t come into this world equipped with all the tools we need to live a productive, satisfying life.  Often, our growing up process fails to provide us with all that we need.  No point in blaming parents or school officials or whatever.  The simple answer is, if things in your life for you or someone you love aren’t working out as you would like, get help!  Nicole has the knowledge and the tools to start you in a new direction.  You deserve it.

Can my marriage be saved?  Maybe.  Maybe not.
Maybe you have waited too long, the gashes are too deep, the time is past for healing.  If not, or if you just want help in deciding, Robin can be your guide.
What is going on?  Are your discussions just shouting matches, or is he/she giving you the silent treatment?  Do you disagree about everything from how to spend your money to how to raise your children?  It is time to act now before it is too late.
Robin will work with you together and separately to find places of agreement, common desires, areas where forgiveness is possible.  Then, she will guide you into the use of tools to lead you toward a common path to love and happiness.  (For more information about Robin, CLICK ON HER FACE.)
