Mount Vernon Counseling and Psychotherapy for LIfe’s Turning Points

Have you been struggling with something you just can’t seem to get past? You can find the inner strength and wisdom you need to take a turn for the better, and stay better. 

When a game-changing moment presents itself, one thing is for sure: those who take advantage of it dive right in and participate. They are the ones who most likely benefit.

That greatest challenges in life often cross over into many different realms. Relationship problems can be complicated by stress at work. A medical condition can create anxiety, or depression. Substance abuse can complicate an already confusing and troubling life transition. Or, sometimes, just when life seems to be getting easier, you or someone you love is revisiting painful experiences from the past.

Individual psychotherapy can guide us to make the changes we need to make. Relationship counseling can also help us learn to accept ourselves and our partners more fully. There does not have to be something “wrong” with you for you to benefit from self-reflection under the guidance of an experienced counselor.

We all need respect, understanding, and faith in our adaptive abilities to heal. From this empowered and confident foundation we can create healthy ways of thinking, feeling and living that bring lasting relationships and a satisfying life.

This website is a resource for individuals, couples, families and children. Many different approaches to counseling are described to help you identify which might be the best fit for you or someone in your family. If you or someone you love is ready to reach a turning point, please don’t wait another minute. I’d like to help. Call or email for an initial 15 minute consultation at no charge.
