ANA MARQUES, MFTi

Do you feel like a struggle has control over you, or is the struggle of a family member hurting your family? Do you feel broken or helpless? You are not broken and I can help.

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.

Ofrezco servicio en Español. Si se siente atrapado por una dificultad o por la dificultad de alguien en su familia, yo puedo ayudarle. Aparte de mi entrenamiento, tengo conocimiento pleno de los retos que vienen de ser un inmigrante Hispano. Me encantaría ayudarle a crear y mantener sanación.

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. At times people need help to see the good in themselves. I find that people respond well to, and are encouraged by, positive motivation, focusing on strengths rather than weaknesses, the positive rather than the negative. Negative views tend to dominate when life feels difficult or overwhelming. Allowing individuals and families to see the strengths they forgot about or didn’t realize they had is motivating and reenergizing, and it sometimes takes an outside perspective to start that recognition.

I’ve seen a lot of teens and adults find success learning techniques that keep their minds from the anxious past or future and live in a healthier present moment. This reduces the noise in their life and trains them how to focus on the calm and quiet to help with anxiety and depression. I also assist families in overcoming conflict to rebuild relationships through active teaching of skills such as effective communication and how to avoid power struggles, as well as many other essential parenting skills. These skills create a more peaceful family environment. Families with children still at home find this particularly successful.

Sometimes the challenges we face are connected to the home environment, or you just feel more comfortable there. Being in the environment where you live can be the best place to work in and effect change. It can be also be difficult to get to an office because of trying to find babysitting or rearrange a busy schedule. Some even find it difficult to open up in an office setting, so having me come to your home could be a good solution. Please contact me with any questions about my approach to your specific need or if you would like to set up an appointment.

There's never a convenient time to go to therapy. However, a valuable time to try is during adolescence. Young adults face many difficult challenges. This time is not only challenging for youth, but for their parents as well! Stress develops in areas of sports, religion, school, and relationships. Transitioning into adulthood can be difficult, but I've seen it be a time of great progress for clients and their loved ones. I help clients learn to cope with their current stresses and find their own unique identity and strength. Don't wait too long to start living the life you want to be living.

 
MICHAEL MORGAN, LMFT

It takes courage to reach out for help. It’s vulnerable to hope for change. Like the heroes we hear about in our favorite tales, I see individuals, couples, and families overcome difficult challenges and find deeper meaning and purpose in their lives. In therapy, you will confront your inner dragons, rewrite your past, and transform yourself into what you would like to become. The process of therapy is truly remarkable. It’s an unseen and unrecognized form of heroism. As Joseph Campbell put it, the cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek. Going to therapy can be scary, but the reward could be life-changing. It’s an honor that people share their lives with me. If you are looking for someone to share your story with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

TYLER M STARK, LCMHC

Hi, I'm Tyler Stark. I'm a mental health counselor treating individuals, teens, couples, and families. In my practice I focus on assisting couples and individuals with relationship concerns. I help couples strengthen their relationship by enhancing their communication, fortifying trust, and repairing hurts from the past. I also assist individuals in improving romantic, social, and family relationships. I strive to help my clients move from a place of pain and frustration to growth and healing. My goal is to create a collaborative and gentle environment in which we can maximize your own strengths to bring about the desired change in your life.

I often work with couples dealing with various types of betrayal including: pornography use, financial secrets, emotional affairs, physical infidelity, addiction and renouncing religion. I have training in Gottman Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy. These approaches are shown to help couples repair their past and improve their connection.

Sometimes changing your life demands having outside support to move in a new direction and you can begin the process of change now. I welcome teens, parents, individuals, couples and entire families into my practice. I offer extended evening hours to accommodate your schedule. Please call for an appointment.
