Tim Ervin, LCPC, BCC, CH




I work with individuals just like you. Together, we develop new tactics and methods, as well as strategize new habits to get you navigating life with added passion, purpose, and clarity. People have told me they desire a passionate life with gratifying relationships. They want to feel of value and make money doing something that is fulfilling.

Men and women say they crave a life full of confidence and insight. They tell me that they strive to reduce anxiety, worry less, end self-doubt, and to be the best spouses and parents possible.

My helping style will help you move away from problems and into solutions. I have over two decades of experience guiding people through unique and common life challenges. These 20+ years of experiences will be available for you as you design the best version of yourself.

It’s about also partnering with you in designing (or redesigning) your life goals purposes. I understand people come from a variety of backgrounds, have different values, and an assortment of preferred life perspectives. I offer a non-judgmental counseling & coaching style that accepts all possibilities. The linking factors are that we all want to be happy, feel connected to the world, and comprehend our place in this world.
