Stay Focused on Healthy Living

Individual & Group Counseling in Dane County, WI

Your body is inundated with food and drink, physical sensations, experiences, memories, and stressors. Managing a healthy balance takes a lot of support and attention. Finding ways to seek the comforts in life and coping with hardships is an ongoing battle. 

Let's breakdown the various aspects of your day-to-day existence to address your physical and emotional health concerns with our personal counseling in Madison, WI. Read the Consumer Safety Guide.



What we consume and put in our bodies forms the basis of our thinking, emotions, and behavior. What we choose to eat or not eat will affect our physical and mental health. It has an impact on our energy level, appearance, and overall wellbeing.

We explore the 90/10 nutrition philosophy. That is, striving to consume 90% of your diet from the green tier, which includes such foods as avocados, blueberries, and almonds; and 10% from the yellow tier, which includes rice, potatoes, and bread; and avoiding foods on the red tier, which basically is anything with added cane sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

Physical Fitness

It is also critical to find time in your schedule to partake in aerobic activity. The time you invest in staying fit will actually save you time when you are able to address other areas in your life more effectively and efficiently.

Letting Go of the Past

You are who you are today as a result of each moment of your life. You can learn from your mistakes or hardships to become a better person.

Traumatic experiences won’t be forgotten, but you can control what lies ahead of you.

We explore the world as you perceive it and your place in it. We will focus on what you have the power to change or affect. You will learn to accept what has already occurred, and be energized to move forward in a positive direction.

We will examine your mindset and shape it in a way that you find happiness and fulfillment in your life!

Examining Anxiety & Depression

Examining Anxiety & Depression

Your mental health rises to the level of a disorder when your condition interferes with your ability to function adequately in any aspect of your life that includes work, school, and relationships to name a few OR you are experiencing significant distress (despite your ability to “get by” and seemingly appear "normal" to others).

We explore various types of these conditions and examine how these problems affect you.

Anxiety can be crippling and make it difficult to cope with your life.

From a very compassionate position and with personal knowledge from which to draw, we will fully address these issues and design a treatment plan so that you can enjoy a life that is fulfilling and happy!

Building a Winning Self-Image

The single, most significant force directing and determining your life is your self-image, whether it be toward success or failure, fulfillment or frustration, illness, or health.

It develops primarily from your thoughts and beliefs in your subconscious mind. You have 100% control over your thoughts and beliefs.

You can learn to make changes in how you view yourself. Your self-esteem is the feelings you have about your worth. As you think, so you are.

We will take a look at your self-esteem and help you become the person you would like to be. You are worth it!
