I work with people who want to improve, understand or make decisions about their present and past relationships. Together, we identify personal wants and needs, we set goals, we address feelings and we stack up small successes. We directly and indirectly address some of the issues that strain relationships, like gender roles, religion, race, class, sexual identities, cultural backgrounds and parenting demands. I welcome partners who are managing the impact of infidelities. And, I have a special place in my heart for helping people in the arts, educators and people in leadership to sustain their relationships and balance their lives.

Relationships are magical. They are also hard work. Just when you thought you'd found your person, the intimacy and joy gives way to new depths of disconnect and loneliness. Or perhaps you're a new parent, excited by the unique possibility of bonding as a family, only to discover overwhelm, even suffering. Trauma can create additional barriers to connection. Attachment issues and difficult childhood relationships can result in reenactments of past relationships and roles that are just plain exhausting. Sound familiar? Then its time for change.

Many people ask me, "Why would I want to feel my feelings?” Whether you are constantly staring at a screen, filling every space on your calendar to avoid being alone with your thoughts, putting on a new mask for every person you encounter, or using alcohol as "social lubricant" to quiet the noise, many of us have mastered the art of avoidance. Some of us neatly tuck our feelings away, trading our emotions for a nicely organized life with lots of explanations and justifications, while others stuff the jumbled up mess under the bed.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Madison, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Madison listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Madison are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Madison

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Madison you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Madison and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Madison or family therapy in Madison.
