Congratulations. Taking initiative to seek therapy is a sign of health as well as an investment in self-care, and wholeness. Our mind can affect every aspect of our health. Exploring a therapeutic option is an important step in gaining motivation to explore your potential. Therapy can help facilitate growth as well as developing skills to manage and cope. I am not able to accept new clients presently. Thank you
Life transitions are inherent in the human experience. Sometimes we are resilient and are able to navigate life’s’ difficulties and other times we need to talk to someone who can truly hear us. I offer individual, family and couples counseling for adults of any age and provide a safe, supportive and empathic setting in which you will feel respected and heard regardless of race, gender identity/expression and sexual orientation.
As the owner of Center for Perinatal Wellness, I believe when a mother struggles, the whole family does also. I specialize in perinatal mood complications, such as Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. A new child changes so much about how a family functions and sometimes families need some help navigating those waters and I am happy to help you do just that. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Cognitive Restructuring exercises in the therapeutic approach, but never encourage a path that a client isn't comfortable with.
Seeking help can be confusing. How do you know if you are talking to the right person? How does therapy work?
It is best to interview a therapist so you can make the best choice FOR YOU! Call me and we can talk about what your needs are, and discuss if working together would be helpful.
You are in charge of your own treatment! Therapy works by empowering you in your life. Start the relationship off that way, no matter who you work with. If you don't want to call, go to my website and contact me by email.
You do so much for others, always there to provide care, comfort and a shoulder to lean on. You are a partner, mother, daughter, sister, friend to everyone….and you have completely lost yourself. Once, you had goals, dreams and a firm sense of who you were. But now, the pressures of day to day life are leaving you depressed, anxious and uncertain. Things are changing all around you but you feel stuck, wanting to feel happy and fulfilled but not sure if that's even possible. You wonder if you will ever feel good enough. The one thing you know is you feel drained, disconnected and aren't sure how your life ended up this way.
Hello, FYI I am not accepting new clients at this time. I am a somatically-oriented therapist specializing in body-based healing. I have 20+ years of experience working with many populations and conditions. Recently I have specialized in couples therapy using the Developmental Model and Attachment work. While I am no longer accepting new couples, these approaches continue to inform my work. I also enjoy supporting individual clients to live the most vital and joyful life they can. I support people dealing with concerns around aging, body-image, sexuality, chronic pain, relationship struggles, anxiety, and trauma.
I have a passion for helping people who are in a time in their lives when extra support, guidance and help could really improve their lives. My goal is to work with the person, who attends counseling with me, to help make their lives better in any way that I can. I have experience working with people who struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, coping skill development, eating disorders, self esteem, family conflict, addiction & anger management problems. I work one on one, with couples and with families. I primarily work with adults over the age of 21.
At times in our lives, we have all experienced confusing and sometimes painful events, whether it be the loss of a loved one, an unexpected illness or health issue, a life transition or trauma. Sometimes, the things we have done in the past to seek relief no longer work as they once did. Therapy can be helpful to find new ways to adjust to the challenges and complications of human life, whether it is rooted in a current life event needing temporary support or a more involved issue requiring long term exploration.
Being human is inherently stressful. My philosophy is that we can accept this reality while also connecting to our innate capacity for joy, purpose, healing and resiliency. Things don't always have to feel so heavy.
My practice is based on Motivational Interviewing, a counseling approach that holds the belief that each of us has the capacity to develop solutions to the problems we confront and that the role of a therapist is to collaborate with people to identify goals, and strategies to achieve those goals, that best fit their lives. People who enter therapy with me can expect to experience an empathic, supportive and respectful relationship that aims to help them increase their clarity regarding the choices facing them, their motivation to pursue important life changes, and their confidence in their ability to do so.
Growing, changing or healing starts with becoming more aware of our deeper feelings and beliefs. Many of us need support learning how to gently uncover and be with what lies just beneath the doing, achieving or surviving of our daily lives. I offer a space for developing a therapeutic relationship and a relationship with yourself that will help you uncover and resolve the issues that leave you feeling stuck or unhappy. Through my own meditation, spiritual practice and experience as a therapist, I have developed a compassionate, warm and non-judgmental way of working with individuals seeking to make changes in their lives.
Everyone hopes to find a Therapist they will match well with in terms of personality and professional style, especially when they are suffering. Deep listening, compassion, and promotion of self-care and coping are values at the center of my practice. I attune topics and activities toward those that the client is most interested in exploring. Integrated Relational Therapy is the holistic, versatile framework that I use to meet teen and adult clients "where they're at" to address issues like trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, relationships, and addiction; through individual, group, and couples counseling.
This shit is hard. Of course you need therapy! With the constant chaos, it's nearly impossible to hold on to who you are and what you want. It's like there's a thousand little debates going on in your head about everything from what time you should go to bed to what your purpose is on a planet that feels like it's falling apart.
Taking on new clients in late August. Free consults are available to determine fit for working together in the future. I am a clinical social worker with an MSW from University of Albany's School of Social Welfare. Earlier graduate work was a Master of Psychology, concentrating in Marriage and Family Therapy. Additionally I spent over ten years working as a birth and postpartum doula and childbirth educator, which has offered me a unique background for working with families. In addition I completed a certificate training for working with victims of assault to enhance my knowledge of trauma and its effects.
I am currently accepting new clients. Whether you are seeking out services for the first time, looking to transition from your current provider or returning to therapy after some time off reaching out requires bravery, vulnerability and trust. I use trauma informed, strength based, client led approaches to create a safe space for people to work on areas of self identified concern. I practice unconditional positive regard and enjoy working with clients to support them in creating the lives they wish to live. I approach every client openly and believe that everyone is capable of the making change they wish to create in their lives.
My name is Coralee (Cora for short). I have been a professional in the valley for 30 plus years. I believe we all have beliefs, a story that prevents us from living to our greater good. I am here and open to supporting that journey into wellness. My field of expertise is Substance Disorders, Mental Health issues. I also work with individuals around the loss of loved ones, jobs, homes. I am particularly open to working with families that have lost a family member to substance use, ie overdose, alcohol side affects. I also work with families around dealing with an afflicted family member. I look forward to helping with your journey.
It is our birthright to know who we truly are and experience our lives to their fullest potential. Each of us has a story, actually many stories, that reveal beliefs we hold about ourselves and the world. These stories and beliefs often stand in the way of expressing our full potential and experiencing the present moment more deeply. Within a supportive, judgment-free space, I help adults, couples, and adolescents claim their strengths and talents, and construct belief systems to support them so they can be shared with the world.
We live in a world that is both beautiful and painful. When the beauty seems hard to find, and the pain becomes too hard to hold, a therapist can help you move forward in your life to find joy and meaning. Therapy can help you move toward what matters most, feel more balanced and connected, and experience life intentionally in the imperfect present. If you have questions about my practice or would like to schedule a consultation, please visit my website at lizandersonlicswma.com or contact me via email (preferred) or phone.
***Seeing clients by telehealth only - no available appointments after 2pm*** Through our work together, I want all of my clients to know two things; one is that they have value that cannot be taken away by anything or anyone and the other is that they do not have to struggle with mental health issues alone. Therapy is the place where you can be authentic and honest about struggles and can feel validated and heard rather than judged or dismissed.
