Taking the First Step...

Are you feeling stuck, afraid or sad?  These are common feelings that often motivate individuals just like you to seek help.  You may be taking this first step to seek counseling because you are experiencing some of these issues and feel you have done all you can to cope, yet find things are not changing or improving.  You may not know exactly where to go for help, who the best person would be to talk to, or what to expect from therapy.  These are normal questions and concerns.  We want to reassure you...You are in the right place!

It takes courage...

Therapy is for courageous individuals, like you, who want to improve their lives, change things that aren't working, learn better ways to cope, strengthen relationships, find relief from pain and suffering, and begin an incredible journey towards hope and healing.

We are here for you...

We have had the privilege of working with numerous individuals in need of support and guidance during the most challenging times in their lives.  We have seen our clients overcome some of the most difficult circumstances that life can offer through having the courage to ask for help, a desire for and dedication to change, perseverance through pain, and just plain hard work!

Maybe you can relate to some of the following questions:

  • Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed and unable to cope?
  • Have you felt that your relationship lacks connection, intimacy or trust?
  • Are you angry, irritable, and easily triggered?
  • Are you having a difficult time adjusting to becoming a new mother or father?
  • Have you and your partner fallen into a negative interactive pattern, deteriorating feelings of love for each other?
  • Do you find that you are having distressing or intrusive thoughts or feelings, leaving you feeling guilty or ashamed?
  • Are you struggling with unresolved issues from your past that are impacting you today?
  • Do you have thoughts that your life is just not what you expected it to be?

"Emily has been a wonderful blessing in my life. She is kind, compassionate, and caring. I have learned so much about myself and how to have empathy for others because of her. One of her greatest strengths is her ability to pinpoint the root cause of your feelings and emotions and teach you why you're feeling them and how to cope and/or work through them. She has led me through some tough times that I woudln't have been able to get through without her guidance. I can't say enough great things about her!"

I started meeting with Ashley a few months ago. After losing my dad 6 years ago, I had some unresolved issues with grief. Talking with Ashley had helped me so much! She is very kind, compassionate, and very easy to talk to! Starting counseling was not an easy thing, but each week I go, I feel so much better; overall I feel much more relaxed in everyday life.

Husband – Couples therapy is a very challenging experience. Based on my experience, it’s even more challenging when you do not have the right therapist. My wife and I were very fortunate to cross paths with Mary approximately 12 years ago. My wife and I needed help improving the communication in our marriage, but we did not know how to accomplish this on our own. When Mary began sessions with us, she took the time to make us feel very comfortable, as if we were talking with a friend or family member. Mary demonstrated a lot of patience and genuine concern to help us communicate better as a married couple. Thanks to her, we were able to open up and improve our marriage. The tools that she provided us are used to this day. Couples have to remember that the help one seeks through counseling, does not happen overnight, but with time. Mary definitely makes the experience of attending couples counseling more comfortable since it feels like help is coming from someone who cares.

Twelve years ago I needed help with my son’s autism and I was provided with that help. This is when Mary came into our lives, not only did she help me understand my son and his diagnosis, but she also started couples sessions for myself and my husband. In the course of 12 years, t she provided us with tools that helped my relationship with my children, parents and my husband. I have learned a great deal in the areas of communication, understanding and listening. My husband and I married and started our family very young, and we didn’t know how to be married or how to work on bettering ourselves. Our communication improves each year, and not just between us, but with our now, teenage children. We do the work, but it takes a special person to guide you. Mary has an incredible and unique way of helping you understand. I know my family benefited from her help. Counseling is an amazing experience and having the right person guide you makes the experience even better. Thank you Mary, I am eternally grateful.

We first started seeing Ashley a couple of years ago for marriage counseling when we were on the brink of divorce. Ashley has saved our marriage twice now, and taught us the essential skills necessary to work through difficult times on our own. We have also both had positive experiences with individual counseling sessions.

Therapy with Kelsey was the best thing I did for myself. After years of unsuccessful infertility treatments, life was getting harder to handle. I went to 2 other counselors in the community before finding Kelsey. The other counselors didn't understand the loss and grief I was going through. One offered "solutions" like adoption, while the other told me, "you're young, kids will come. What else is going on in your life?" Kelsey's expertise with infertility and loss helped me navigate the difficult emotions I was experiencing. She listened, asked provoking questions, and gave me things to do in between visits. Although my infertility hasn't changed, I have learned how to cope, regain happiness, and be excited about life again.

I am so grateful for resources like Kelsey Redd. After attempting numerous infertility treatments with no success, I felt broken and alone. My husband and I have benefited from the experience of working with Kelsey. Kelsey has helped us to face the loss and grief this complicated issue has created in our lives. Knowing I am talking to someone who has been through it too has helped me to develop techniques to understand and validate my emotions and find the strength to move on.

There aren’t words to express the compassion and care that Ashley has shown me. I am grateful and blessed to have her on my continued journey through self discovery.

In my time with Ashley, we have worked hard on developing healthy boundaries. My world was shattered after a sexual trauma, and I can confidentially say I am a new person.

Mary was my therapist for several years after the sudden loss of my twins and then infant son. She was also my oldest daughter’s play therapist. Mary became a lifeline for our family during a very difficult time. She was the first person I thought to contact when my infant son was diagnosed, and one of the first I wrote to for help after he passed away. Each time, no matter her own life circumstances, she was there to offer my husband and I help and needed advice as we tried to cope. I always felt Mary instinctively knew how to help us handle trauma and PTSD from different circumstances – even before we knew we needed guidance in that area. One of the things that meant the most to us was knowing that even though Mary maintained a professional relationship, she also cared deeply for each of us. She is the kind of therapist I am able to encourage others to keep searching for if they aren’t happy in their current therapy. We miss her tremendously and know any client who sees her will benefit greatly from their sessions.

“Emily has been great to work with. She seeks to understand and attack the root of the problem, not just the symptoms. She demonstrates empathy, a wide range of professional expertise, and depth of knowledge. I do not feel judged when we meet together and look forward to continuing my path with her to heal, develop self-worth, and improve family relationships.”

"I was apprehensive to initiate therapy due to preconceptions, past experiences and shame. But, I found myself in a situation where I knew I needed help. Miraculously, I was paired with Emily and can honestly say it was the best decision I made in my personal journey to find help, healing and peace. My experience with Emily was different from previous experiences with different counselors. I immediately felt secure with her while opening up about my most personal struggles. She broadened my understanding of how past experiences led me to my current situation and focused more on correcting those rather than just listening to my current issue or problem. It was with this knowledge that I was truly able to make positive changes in my life rather than just finding a temporary band-aid. I found the tools, lessons and support Emily shared with me have been invaluable."

Ashley has been a great resource to my wife and I and provided tremendous help to our marriage at our toughest moment. She is very perceptive and insightful and does a good job of uncovering issues and being fair to both sides. She is easy to talk to and has good techniques to help improve communication skills.

"What can I say? Emily is the best!! After 22 years of marriage we were going through some trying times. She was compassionate, understanding, and gave us many tools that helped tremendously. Today we are on a much happier journey in our new home in Colorado."

Ashley is Wonderful! As a client who saw her in couples sessions, as well as individual sessions, I have benefited from Ashley’s professionalism and expertise in a multitude of ways. Her ability to identify, explore, and examine the issues all while providing a safe and open environment is remarkable. I believe her holistic approach, in turn, provides you with the tools and means to be, successful “in the now,” but even more importantly, the long term.
Female, age 39
Kelsey is really great! She has a wealth of knowledge on subjects and ways to help you. She gives you things to think about and work on in between sessions and is easy to talk to. I recommend therapy in general but when you have a great therapist that has a gift of helping you see things outside of yourself it makes a difference. She wants you to love yourself and I have learned so much from our sessions that I can still draw back on when difficulties arise. love her!

After a break in trust in our marriage, my husband and I started researching counseling and our options. We read the reviews and made an appointment. At our first appointment with Ashley we felt comfortable and ready to tackle our issues. She was amazing and had really great advice to help us get back on track.

"I can't say enough good things about Emily, I felt comfortable with her the minute I sat down in her office. Emily helped me get through the darkest time of my life. I was suffering from severe Post Partum Depression and Anxiety and didn't know if I was going to make it. Emily assured me I would get through it, and I did. Emily is compassionate and feels like a friend. She not only helped me get through PPD and PPA, but helped me with so many other aspects of my life and looked at the whole picture and gave great guidance and the necessary tools to heal. I would recommend Emily to anyone without hesitation."

Incredible to work with. She listens very well, offers relevant feedback and explanations, and makes it clear on what you need to focus on for improvements in myself, my life, and my relationships with others. She also helps you lay out attainable goals for yourself, big and small, and encourage you to work towards them, while giving support as you accomplish them! Lovely, safe, quiet environment- they always make sure you feel comfortable. Very inspiring group!
