I am Licensed Marriage and Family therapist , licensed in both Pennsylvania, Florida and Minnesota.
I grew up in an urban environment or as I affectionately call it “the hood”. It is my belief that those who grow up in “the hood” walk through life with a unique set of experiences. Those experiences serve as a foundation for the ways in which we show up in the world , how we understand and express emotions and how we engage with others. Through a collaborative and person centered approach I assist my clients in identifying, understanding, and highlighting the positive patterns that have been adopted as they have moved throughout life , while challenging and disrupting the patterns that no longer serve them well.

Hi, my name is Hyelee (pronounced Haley despite the spelling!), and I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist who brings my humor and intuition to each of my clients. I especially love working with couples and families because relationships are often the foundational blueprint for our wellbeing. While most of us don't need calculus to be reasonably happy, some basic relational skills are necessary to foster healthy relationships, and building healthy relationships requires time and effort, as learning calculus does.

Clinical focus includes: relationship and marriage therapy, communication enhancement, interracial/intercultural couples, child-parent problems, and Men's issues.
Dealing with emotional or relationship problems, or perhaps a traumatic life experience alone can be challenging and isolating. There comes a time in many of our lives when getting help from a professional may be imperative. When choosing a therapist, their wisdom, life experience, empathy and connection with you are crucial as they will teach you the skills you need to better manage life. I believe I possess these qualities and impart them in each professional relationship whether it is with an individual, couple or a family. Therapy occurs in a safe and confidential environment.

I am a marriage and family therapist and certified yoga instructor.
It is a mystery as to why things happen to us. It becomes even more complex as to how we will heal. Sometimes the emotional pain can become too difficult to get through alone and we often seek additional help. Whether you're suffering from a loss of a loved one, a marital conflict, stress, anxiety, or even PTSD, there is still hope. I believe that true healing comes from healthy attachments to self and others, meaningful mind-body connections, and by gaining better control over your thoughts, emotions and physical being.

Marriage Counseling Therapists

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
