Life can be hard. Therapy doesn't have to be. In a world full of pressure to "get it right" it's easy to feel wrong! Sometimes we are facing unchangeable circumstances. Sometimes we have hard choices to make. Sometimes we just think we're supposed to be different. I believe our greatest struggle is being torn between who we think we should be and who we are able to be. Exploring our origin stories, guiding values, and present choices allows us to align with who we are in a meaningful way. With respectful humor - mostly sarcastic jokes about life's ironies - we can work together to find who you want to be.

I have been a counselor for 20 years. I strive to create a safe environment in which the client is able to explore and identify areas of their life that have been problematic. It is important to me to get to know my clients and meet them on a moment-to-moment basis and help by entering their world. My approach focuses on the person and assists in the growth process.

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life. While you may have successfully pushed through previous problems, it's not uncommon to feel stuck when problems arise where extra support and guidance can help.

Many couples want to communicate better, and at the core, partners want to feel emotionally connected to each other. Oftentimes, the negative interaction cycles of blame-withdraw, attack-defend, demand-withdraw are actually indicators of emotional disconnection between partners. By identifying the cycle, couples can become more open to and engaged, can create new emotionally attuned connections, and can revitalize their relationship. Attention to the couples sexual relationship is interwoven throughout the couples therapy. Visit my website to connect with me more.

I believe that we all have things in life that we need help dealing with or working through. As a counselor I provide a safe, confidential, and nonjudgmental place for people to get the help they are seeking. I use several therapeutic modalities including cognitive behavioral, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, somatic experiencing and emotional focused therapy to name a few. When working with couples I use the Gottman marriage approach as well as the therapies listed above. I may explore with the client their past and present in order to promote self-discovery/awareness that will assist them with the outcome they desire.

You feel stuck, repeating the same patterns no matter how hard you try. And you try - try harder to do better, forgive, heal, and move forward. However, too often you end up right back where you started. It's hard to trust people, and when you do you often end up hurt. During the day, you feel you are in a constant fog and find it difficult to make decisions or meaningful connections. At night, you wish you could flip a switch and turn off your mind so you could sleep. The way you have been coping isn't working, and you feel overwhelmed. You want hope: hope to heal, hope to move forward, hope to feel more in control.

I believe the power to change, grow, and overcome obstacles lies within each one of us. Sometimes, for many different reasons, we need additional support to identify, and build on the strengths we have within us to accomplish what we want. I have 16 years of experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to support clients as they accomplish their goals and overcome life stressors, depression, anxiety, grief and trauma.

Hi, my name is Mary Jane Poulson; I go by "Jane". I have worked in the helping profession for over 30 years with a primary focus on the treatment of depression, anxiety and trauma. I have worked with issues ranging from chronic mental disorders to major life stressors. I understand how difficult it can be to find someone to feel comfortable enough to share your inner most thoughts and feelings, and how emotional distress and unhelpful thinking can contribute to dysfunctional behaviors and conflicted relationships, perpetuating your pain. When friends or family aren't enough to help, it's time to find a professional you can trust.

Listening to my clients is my number one focus. My belief is two part. First, once an individual has reprocessed their traumatic experiences, the body can shift into a more regulated state to offer space to develop new skills needed to graduate from therapy. Second, therapy is goal directed. Thus, when you feel confident to effectively use your learned skills inside of therapy and apply them outside of the therapy office, graduation from therapy is achieved. My hope is that our work together will help you discover the path that leads to your best, most fulfilled, authentic self.

I work with a variety of clients from all walks of life. People attend counseling for many reasons, but most of them stem either from difficulties in relationship with others or with self and from some of the "givens" in life, including: death, isolation, lack of meaning, freedom, and responsibility. Those who seek counseling services want to feel happy, live more in line with how they view their world, and/or get along better in their significant relationships.
