ANA MARQUES, AMFT
My multicultural background helps me to relate, accept, and communicate with people of diverse backgrounds and faiths. I myself have gone through programs for compulsive behavior management and support groups for women’s issues. After achieving some recovery, I became an advocate and volunteer at a few organizations facilitating meetings, educating, and sponsoring members. Eventually, my passion for supporting people regain their authenticity and power led me to pursue my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I bring my personal experience and the latest in brain science to help you and your family create and sustain healing.
Erika Eisenman, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and have been practicing since 2016. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina A&T (2014), and finished my Graduate degree in 2015 from the University of Utah.
CAMERON VANKOMEN, LCSW
As a Licensed Social Worker, I support those with depression, anxiety, strained relationships, or individual and family conflict. My goal is to help others discover the motivation within themselves to make change possible. I sincerely feel like we are all meant to be happy in our own way, and I enjoy helping others find their ‘happy’ by guiding them through the process of self-discovery, developing new perceptions, or just finding a way to cope with day-to-day stressors. Challenges are a part of life, whether wanted or not, and it’s not always easy to know how to approach each one that comes our way.
KELLY LEON, AMFT
I am passionate about providing you with compassion toward your feelings and validation of your situation. I value a trusting and collaborative relationship, where we can work together, so you can feel safe to talk about your experiences and lift the pain you feel. Many people go decades with unresolved trauma and suffer from damaged relationships as a result. I want you to know there is help and you deserve to feel freedom to move forward. Let me help you find and recognize your strengths, broaden your perspective, and lift self-shame so you can see things clearer and have a better life. If you are struggling, please come see me, so you can begin your journey to healing.
You have probably visited this site
because some aspect of your life, or someone’s you love, isn’t ideal. You are most likely experiencing suffering in some significant way. Our hearts go out to you. Maybe you aren’t connecting with your spouse, or your children, how you would like to. You might feel you aren’t performing to your fullest capability at work, school, or other important areas of interest, or competitions. You might be experiencing doubt, or questions regarding your unique purpose, or belief systems. Maybe someone you know is struggling with anxiety, depression, attention deficiency, anger issues, or the loss of a meaningful relationship. We at Momentum Counseling Services want to support you during these crucial times and help you move through your life’s challenges in a meaningful and purposeful way.
As you go through life, you realize that suffering and hurts are inevitable, but setbacks don’t mean doom or despair. Individual, Couples, Family and other mental and emotional counseling can help you help you move forward and progress toward a hopeful, fulfilled, and purposeful life. Therapy doesn’t mean that you are crazy, or that you have a problem, it just means that you don’t have to go through your challenges alone.
If you are feeling stuck in some area of your life,
you just need one thing to fall your way. However, it can be difficult to create that inertia, or forward momentum, on your own. There is a synergy that is created when you meet with a caring, understanding, and knowledgeable professional, who is not biased, and who intricately involved and invested in your current situation and your progress. In therapy, you will experience validation, understanding, and new strategies to approach your situation with a new perspective and a sense of empowerment and capability to overcome.
It’s completely understandable that people procrastinate doing things that are uncomfortable, or new. However, it’s a tragedy when people wait too long. They feel remorse for not having taken action sooner. Marriages can be saved, goals can be reached, and regrets can be limited if you face your fears and discomfort now, rather than waiting until it’s too late. If you ignore something, it doesn’t go away…in fact, it will oftentimes get bigger.
