HELLO! Feeling stuck? We live in hard times and relief doesn't seem fast enough these days. I've been there and I know what works. My job is to ensure you learn what works by teaching up-front, fast, coping methods and strategies that work to rapidly move you towards more relaxation, self-control and joy—usually in 3-5 sessions. In fact I've written a book about it titled "UCoping: Interactive Edition" available on Amazon. This all comes through an active faith, being licensed and through the academics of clinical psychotherapy. Book now at www.waysofcoping.clientsecure.me, or click “Website" or "MyWebsite" on this page.

We can spend all of our energy trying to change other people in our lives, blaming them for our brokenness, or we can have the courage to love and change ourselves and thus become more loving people to those around us! The internal messages we have believed and followed are learned. We have the ability to let go of and/or add to the kinds of relationship skills that our parents and others modeled for us. Essentially, we can connect.

Hello. I provide on-call access 24/7. I am here for people who are driven, successful, and busy. Therapy gets a bad rap and is often seen as soft or too emotional. I focus on your success. When emotion is important, we talk about it. When something else is important, we talk about that. If you want to focus on your past, someone can help you with that. If you want to figure out what is stopping your from succeeding right now, I can help you.

Seeking counsel outside your circle of family and friends is often a difficult decision to make. I feel counseling begins with a genuine connection between the therapist and client. Within this relationship I offer a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate environment in which clients find their inner strength, healing, and personal growth. My goal is to assist clients find skills needed to work through the difficulties that have prevented them from moving forward. Whether you are struggling with personal growth, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, or just need constructive feedback, counseling can be a life enriching experience.

Sometimes life knocks you down and you need help getting back on your feet. Let’s do this together! Hi, my name is Dr. Koehler. I could talk about my degrees and experience, but what is most important for you to know is that I’m here to listen and help you get through tough times. I use a client-centered approach, meaning that I tailor our sessions to be what you need. Maybe that is talk therapy, maybe it’s something more complex like CBT (don’t worry, I’ll explain this before we dive into it!). Our time spent together is about you.

Depression is overwhelming sadness that has an impact in living your best life. Depression can be accompanied by different symptoms of anxiety, panic and loss of energy/motivation. Overcoming depression can be challenging if you are doing it alone. Negative life experiences can and do have an impact on who you are and your happiness. Awareness and understanding of what is going on inside of yourself is powerful in helping yourself to overcome negative or irrational thoughts that are keeping you from being your true self.
