Couples therapy: I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy. EFT leads a couple to get right to the heart of the problems that keep relationships unsatisfying and disconnected. The goal of EFT is to help you create safety and security in your relationship so that deep connection can grow from the practice of honesty and vulnerability. EFT has been found to be successful with about 75% of couples.
I pride myself in counseling the whole person instead of narrowly treating issues. Whatever issues or symptoms are presented, they are connected in meaningful ways to the individual. Greater self awareness leads to more effective self-regulation of moods and behavior. Depth counseling is reaching for the root of one's pain as opposed to snipping at the outer branches or leaves. I liken counseling to detective work in which my clients and I identify clues and follow the trail of symptoms back to the source of original pain, trauma and grief. From there, deep healing is possible.
Benjamin Franklin once said "Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of Mind than on the outward Circumstances". Of course, as a psychologist, I understand that the pursuit of happiness is more complicated in the 21st century than it was in the 1700's. I also know from many years in mental health that it can be difficult to have positive thoughts when you're struggling in life. The support of a professional therapist can help ground you, and assist you in finding the perseverence it will take to put up the protective lightning rod for life's stormy weather.
I believe the solutions to many of our life's struggles are already within ourselves. As your therapist, I will assist you to identify what you envision for yourself, and help you feel better and accomplish your goals.
My approach is practical, concrete and collaborative. In our work together we focus on your strengths, accomplishments and inherent skills and wisdom.

As a play therapist and parent resource, I help parents have more harmonious and enjoyable relationships with their children.

Sometimes we all need a little help as we navigate this thing called life. I am here for you. I specialize in grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, self esteem, and self-harm behaviors affecting, children (10+), teens, young adults, and adults. I am also available to provide parent coaching. I have years of experience working with the pediatric oncology population and children who have caregivers with cancer.
Due to Covid and some personal life changes, I will be offering online sessions only at this time. Being a parent is an incredibly overwhelming and rewarding role and in the same breath, sometimes it is not very easy to be kid trying to communicate with your parent either. Subscribing to the notion that no one child or family can "fit" into a box, I encourage confidence in individuality and assisting children and families in exploring their shared values and finding a way to use their "differences" as strengths. In family therapy, I strive to increase acceptance, understanding, and enjoyment in the family dynamic.
I have an integrative approach to psychotherapy bringing awareness to body, mind, and spirit. How we eat, sleep, exercise, and relate to each other and the world are all meaningful and woven together in my approach. I use the Synergistic Play Therapy model with children and use the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) with couples and families. I also offer polychromatic light therapy to clients requesting this additional therapeutic modality to promote healing and well-being.
WELCOME! I ENJOY WORKING WITH INDIVIDUALS who are motivated to learn about themselves and their relationships~to their partner, family, work, creative endeavors and/or physical health. CLIENTS report that they appreciate my humor, compassion and interactive style. TOGETHER, we explore how specific patterns may be at the root of emotional, interpersonal and/or physical challenges. TO BRIDGE THE GAP that often occurs between insight and transformative change, I draw from my background in the MEDICAL FIELD, as well as from NEURO("BRAIN")SCIENCE, MINDFULNESS PRACTICES and current research regarding the intricate RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH.
My practice is focused on the integration of grief and experiences into your life by using person-centered, humanistic, existential, and contemporary counseling theories serving individuals, families and groups. I grew up in a family of funeral directors and have many life experiences of loss, transitions, and resiliency. I have also lived in recovery for 36+ years. I can also be reached at www.betterhelp.com/halene-phelps. I am available by telehealth.
"Everyone is innately powerful! We are alive at a time where science is verifying our potential to transform and heal literally anything which is landing us in the empowered position to live a life that is better than we could dream. As we begin to understand how our whole mind, body, and energy system is working then, we are able to access the wisest parts of ourselves and choose how we would like to live. This inner journey is powerful and important work, so I offer a free 20 minute, in person, consultation to determine our therapeutic compatibility and to honor the process."
My counseling practice is about helping release people from burdens weighing them down so they can live freely, confidently, and enjoy their lives. Whatever forms a burden takes on (loss of self, trauma, relationship difficulty, emotional instability, spiritual abuse and much more), my hope is to help bridge a painful and self-rejecting narrative for one of acceptance and healing. My method is to help clients build tools and learn to practice boundaries, self-awareness, emotional stability, relational connection, self acceptance and more. I myself found great freedom in counseling, this experience led me to become a therapist.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, CAC, III, CHT
I believe in the power of people to change. Clients that are dedicated to their own healing will find support, information, and creative professional treatment in my practice. I treat adolescents, adults and elderly because change is possible at any age. I have an extensive background treating individuals from all walks of life, in many different clinical settings, and with many diverse conditions. I am very open minded and non-judgemental. I have worked in the healthcare field for many years and have a holistic approach, with special interest in mindfulness, stress management, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and addiction issues.
I offer individual, family and couples psychotherapy in a supportive environment. Regardless of why you're seeking therapy, I'm here to help you. Do you ever wonder why you repeat the same patterns in your relationships? Do you find yourself thinking the same negative thoughts? If so, you're not alone. To be heard and understood is a basic human need. It's hard to find someone to talk to and someone who will listen. Together we'll explore the connection between your behaviors, thoughts and feelings and how you can learn to control them.
People seeking my services will experience a safe private space to explore and understand their deepest thoughts, feelings, and fantasies. Improving understanding of self in relation to others can lead to greater satisfaction in daily life and greater capacity to achieve one’s desired goals. I offer individual psychotherapy or psychoanalysis and couple or family psychotherapy. People who choose to engage my ability to listen, reflect, and interpret will enjoy a greater capacity to think, express, and be real with themselves and others.
Hope is not something that everyone has, but it is something everyone deserves. I work successfully with adolescents and adults to overcome difficult problems including addiction, substance abuse, trauma, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), relationship problems, and overwhelming emotions. My expertise in both psychotherapy and addictions counseling allows me to help people resolve compounding problems though an integrative and effective approach. My passion is working with complex trauma, extremely intense emotions, and addiction. I am committed to helping you feel better, uncover your potential, and achieve meaningful goals.
