About

Welcome, I'm Evelyn Dougherty and I've been a practicing therapist for over 25 years. I currently have openings in my practice - individual, couples, family and group work (which includes a couples group) Whether your in emotional pain from a loss, a break up, relationship stress, raising children, caring for older parents, health issues or challenges at work - I will work with you to create new responses that build your relationships and bring you closer and more intimate with the people in your life.
My specialty is helping to create environments where people can grow emotionally and develop new ways of being in the world that are more powerful. Whether in group, individual, couples or family therapy, give development a try!
If your in emotional pain, (anxiety, depression, isolation, fear or loneliness) the key is not to be alone with it. Come into therapy and share it and that process will heal you and help you grow. The healing will help you see and feel in new ways so can create your life! (again)

Evelyn Dougherty's Groups

Social Therapy Group

Our Social Therapy groups give people the opportunity to work on their life in a group setting. This activity is helpful in the following ways: we begin to see "how others experience us," we can create new things ways of being emotional with others, and we can learn to build healthier relationships. Our groups ages are l8 and up, men and women, all races, and all sexual preferences. We currently have openings in our weekly Wednesday night group (which is currently on zoom) and a Couples group (on zoom) once a month.

More about this group

Wednesday Night Group

Our groups include a broad range of Adults from different backrounds that are looking for help to create ways to deal with the many life issues they are challenged by everyday. We want our groups to reflect the communities we're working and living in so we can learn how to build something positive and develop emotionally. We laugh, we cry, we try to create new ways to be close to each other emotionally and grow along the way. Try it, I've been in the field of mental health for 25 years+ and it works!
