My Approach to Counseling

Betty Readle
M.A., LMFT

Finding the right person when you are seeking therapy for the first time may seem like a daunting task. The idea of sharing personal feelings and experiences with a stranger may be overwhelming. Yet, the thought of being trapped in emotional turmoil can bring forth the courage needed to seek help. That is the reason that finding a good fit with a therapist is so important to the healing process. I bring sensitivity, compassion, and humor to my work along with the belief that people can grow, heal, and transform if the desire is there.

If you are finding difficulty in coping with even the smallest of challenges, difficulty completing tasks, feeling isolated, saying yes when you want to say no, and feeling overwhelmed by the stressors in your life, the emotional help you need may be a phone call away. You don't have to go through this alone. It is time to take care of yourself. Working together, we can help you find your way back on the path to growth and emotional well being.

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.
William James

If you and your partner are feeling worlds apart, the answer to bridging the distance may be closer than you think. My work with couples is based on Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), which has a proven track record of helping couples like you enrich their relationships through the discovery and change of the patterns creating roadblocks to intimacy. Let me be your guide on this road to regaining the fulfilling relationship you long for. Working together, we can identify patterns of communication that get in the way of a loving experience.
