It is my passion and goal to help you create the life you really want and deserve to have. I am here to offer you support and encouragement in a safe and comfortable setting, while helping you get through the most difficult time in your life, to facilitate growth and emotional healing, to assist you in resolving issues, overcoming obstacles, regaining control of your life, and providing you with tools to bring about positive change so you can move forward to a more productive, content, and fulfilling life.
I use a technique that yields permanent results in a short period of time. I offer sliding scale fees, and discounted rates to active military and veterans, students and seniors. I also provide services in the homes of those who are homebound due to a disability, or who cannot drive.
I have been in private practice as a psychotherapist for over 10 years, and love every minute of it! I can't imagine myself doing anything else in life. It is extremely rewarding to see the results or fruits of my work with clients and the progress they make. Feel free to browse the "testimonial" page of my web site to learn more about my former clients' counseling experience with me.
If you need a listening ear from someone who will validate you and is non-judgmental, I am here for you. There is no need to go it alone. Let's go on this journey together!
“I called 30 different counselors before I found Evelyn. I wanted someone I would feel comfortable talking to, because of the nature of my problems, and as soon as I heard her voice on the phone, I knew she was the right fit for me. She showed so much compassion, even before I met her for our first counseling session. I was abused during my childhood years, and then married an alcoholic who also abused me. I was suffering from severe depression and very low self-esteem, when I found Evelyn. She helped me through one of the toughest and lowest times of my life. I am so glad that I found her. Evelyn taught me how to forgive the people who hurt me so I could let go of my past, and begin a ‘new life’.”
“I went to Evelyn because I had problems with anger that I couldn’t control. I didn’t know where to turn for help, but I knew I needed to find out what was causing my anger and what to do about it. It was destroying my life. She was so caring and patient with me while offering me ways to manage my anger and get past it. I learned so much about myself during the time I went to her for counseling. Now there is hope for my future relationships with women, as well as my family and friends. The help she gave me was invaluable. I don’t know where I’d be today, if it wasn’t for Evelyn.”
“I had recently ended a painful marriage and was reeling emotionally from the pain. I met Evelyn through a referral. Immediately, after meeting her, I felt a connection spiritually and emotionally. She is kind and loving but firm. You know she is invested in you. Evelyn challenged me to stay present with my problem and stay focused. She made sure I followed through with my counseling plan. I felt she really helped me and would recommend her highly.”
“I was given a tool and I used it. EFT succeeded where prescription drugs, other forms of therapy, and booze failed. This I swear on my name and my oath. Semper Fi”
We start with a free 30-minute phone consultation (or meet in person) to see if we are a good fit for each other, then proceed to schedule our first session, or the potential client has the option of emailing me to ask questions and schedule an appointment for our first session.
