This Wasn’t the Plan.

There must be more to life, isn’t there?

You wonder what happened along the way. Relationships aren’t what you hoped for. Too much arguing. Or the “ships passing in the night” feeling.

Work is going okay. But you have concerns – with no one to talk to about it. It’s lonely. No one really understands the pressures you’re under. I’ve been a corporate woman – I know the crazy politics and people problems.

Life is demanding and busy, but there is little enjoyment.

You feel at a loss and don’t know how to make things better.

Better Living Is Possible.

Even if you don’t know what to do, there is a path – light at the end of the tunnel! I used to think, “I’m smart – I should be able to figure this out on my own.” It’s hard to think about talking to someone you don’t know. Believe me, I know – I felt the same way!

I Can Help!

In a comfortable, private environment, we can dig into what’s holding you back. Together, we can figure out what’s NOT working and find ways that DO work. It really IS possible to wake up every morning feeling energized – not just resigned to plodding through the day. Wouldn’t that be great? And we’ll find laughter along the way!

Hi, I’m Elaine

You walk into my office not knowing what to expect – feeling uncomfortable and hesitant. I will greet you with a smile and a willingness to hear where you are and what your hopes for therapy are.

Together we will tackle the problems, fears and issues that are holding you back from experiencing life as you dreamed. There are no subjects that are taboo – I’ve heard everything and am never surprised or taken off guard.

I’m a regular person with my share of life’s troubles that have occurred along the way – relationship problems, marriage issues, parenting difficulties, etc. Therapy has been a way forward in my own life, and I want that for you, too.

My passion is to facilitate the life-changing thinking and actions that will change your life for the better. We all deserve that! I believe that we all have the answers inside us – we just need to be able to access them.

Good questions help you find the answers inside that have been hidden away. My clients often say, “You’ve given me a lot to think about – things I’ve never thought of before.”

You’ll find that I’m humorous and easy to talk with. There’s no nodding of the head and mumbling, “Uh Huh.” I have no magic wand (although I often wish that I did!), so it takes some commitment and persistence to get to a new place in life. But if I can do it, so can you!
