Resolute Counseling announces the addition of a new licensed clinician

Towards the middle to end of 2015, my wife and I began dreaming about starting a private practice. Conversations we had and some unexpected circumstances along the way helped to propel us and ended up birthing the idea and formation of Resolute Counseling. Only through the support of our family, friends, and God could this dream become a reality. Once we opened our doors in the beginning of 2016, we had what I thought were reasonable expectations for how successful the practice could be. … [Read more...] about Resolute Counseling announces the addition of a new licensed clinician

Recognizing the Mid-Life Crisis and How to Avoid the Pitfalls

Anyone who knows me knows that I love the sport of football. Football is a game that is as much about the game plan as it is about the players. A game is often won or lost based on how much the team prepares and makes adjustments throughout the game. Often the coaching staff will script the first 15-20 offensive plays in an effort to get out to an early lead and build momentum for the rest of the game. This idea of creating the script is often true of how a person can live their life. Similar … [Read more...] about Recognizing the Mid-Life Crisis and How to Avoid the Pitfalls
