Feeling overwhelmed by the past, present, or future?

Currently accepting new clients for both in-person and telehealth visits

Individual Psychotherapy

Life is not always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people need a little bit of help to work through some of life's more challenging problems.

Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. And when you’re faced with difficult times, it can feel as if you just can't figure out how to move past things on your own.  Therapy can help you manage these challenges with knowledge and support.

I realize that no two people are the same, and I tailor my therapy to meet your specific needs as an adult. I love helping people understand the things that are holding them back by working together to improve connections between their emotional and physical health.  By reprocessing personal history while learning new coping skills, clients can adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to live life in a different, healthier way.

If you're ready to get back on the path that leads to the happier times in your life, then you've come to the right place. Let’s work together to get you back on course.  Please email me or contact me today!

About Kathleen Phelps, LCSW

My interest in working in the field of mental health started early for me, and I was fortunate enough to follow up this passion with both an undergraduate and graduate degree.  I did my first graduate program internship at a psychiatric intensive outpatient program attached to a local hospital.  My final year’s internship was at a large HMO’s department of outpatient psychiatry and addiction medicine, where I was later hired and worked for 16 years.
