“Clarity is the perspective you can’t see.”

- Steve Gilliland

When we climb mountains, we have to face our deepest fears and find ways of overcoming them. In doing so, we get to know ourselves better and learn more about our potential. If we really put our mind to it.

Crystal River Counseling

We Offer a Wide Range of Expertise to our Clients


It is common to feel anxious and/or depressed in situations where we become nervous, sad or hopeless.   Sometimes we let these thoughts take over and may feel they are negatively impacting our daily life function. Getting through the day can be a struggle and asking for help feels intimidating.  Seeking professional therapy can help you manage these feelings of anxiety and/or depression. We will work together to find practical ways for you to cope with these feelings and live a balanced life.  

Health & Wellness

If you have had a serious injury or illness, chances are you are using many methods to treat your condition. You may need special medication, physical therapy, surgery or other types of treatment. Counseling and mental therapy can be a vital part of the overall holistic treatment process.  Poor physical health can contribute to mental health concerns and mental health issues often stem from the stress and isolation of enduring an illness. 

Self Esteem & Confidence

We all have self-esteem…positive or negative…and self-esteem influences many areas of our life whether we realize it or not. Having low self-esteem can impact self-confidence and often leads to self-doubt and the questioning of our self-worth.  Together we can find practical ways to improve ‘self-love’ so you can be your authentic self.

Theoretical Approach

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Client-Centered Therapy and Mindfulness.

Exploring Relationships

As social beings we desire to be in close personal relationships, but this path is not always an easy one for some of us. We crave to be loved and accepted for ‘who we are’, however the fear of rejection often keeps us from showing our authentic self. Whether you are looking for love or having challenges in your current relationship, therapy might help.  Therapy can help you break down the barriers and patterns that keep you ‘stuck’ in behavioral ruts that do not serve you well.

Expressing Emotions

When we fail to express our emotions adequately, our brain often retreats to a fight-or-flight state. This is a physical reaction to stress and sets off a chain reaction of events throughout our body. It increases the heart rate, slows digestive function and makes us feel anxious or depressed. Learning how to express emotions in a healthy way has many benefits including: Improved ability to connect with self and others, healthier and happier relationships, improved decision making, better problem-solving ability and increased resilience.
