Welcome to Thrive for Life Counseling

~Your Local Trauma & EMDR Therapist~
Your Life Feels like it is out of Control

You might have seemingly random anger outbursts or crying spells. Your life might appear amazing to others, but you can’t seem to enjoy it. Nobody else understands what you are going through. You wish you could be more present for your kids. While you may have experienced trauma, pain, loss, hardship, or substance abuse, you are ready to take hold of your future. You are ready to learn how to cope and ready to make changes in your life. If you are looking to break free of a painful past that has you chained in your present, you have found the right place. We are here to help you navigate life on YOUR terms.

You are Ready for Change, but You aren't Sure Where to Begin

You already have the ability to create a life you want to live, you just need help getting there. Here, you will feel comfortable, supported, heard and understood. Our ability to connect, and our relationship will be essential in your healing. You will have therapy that fits you and your goals (CBT, DBT, EMDR, etc.). While it may seem like positive change is out of reach, our Licensed Therapists will show you there is always hope. 

What is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy

Clients come to Thrive because they need help. They recognize their problems are not something they can make sense of on their own. Thrive clients are mothers, professionals, daughters, and partners. They have survived life on its terms, and are ready to Thrive on their own.

When we endure trauma, our brains often get stuck processing the experience. Our brains tell us we are living out our trauma again and again.  These flashbacks can be felt as body sensations,  emotions, urges, and as vivid re-experiencing. EMDR is a fantastic way to process trauma and continue forward movement in your life. EMDR is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. It requires no homework in between sessions, and doesn’t require you to go into detail about your trauma. EMDR helps your brain continue its natural healing process. Check out the video below for an introduction on EMDR and why it may be right for you! Make an appointment with us today to start creating your new future.

Clinical Supervision

Finding quality clinical supervision is one of the biggest challenges in this field. If you want quality supervision from someone committed to your personal and professional growth, look no further.



Traumatic events can have lifelong impacts on those who have suffered through them. You are not alone in your struggle, and can move forward. Additionally, if you are a prior or current service-member, you can be confident you will be working with a service veteran who can relate to your struggles.


Anxiety is a condition in which each day is riddled with overwhelming restlessness, constant worry, inability to relax, difficulty concentrating, and feelings of being out of control (to name some). We can help you take control and reduce the devastating effects that anxiety can have on your life.


Depression is a common and very serious mood disorder. Some common symptoms include lack of interest or pleasure in daily activities, fatigue, poor sleep, difficulty concentrating, feelings of worthlessness, and thoughts of death or dying. Let us help you find hope and happiness again.
