“The most significant predictor of successful therapy is feeling like you have a strong therapeutic alliance with your therapist. If you don’t feel that you and your therapist are a good fit, it’s going to be tough to feel good about the work you are doing. This is why I strive to connect with each of my clients and understand the unique circumstances and concerns that have brought them to therapy. I attempt to make sure that every one of my clients feels heard, understood, and positive about the therapeutic journey they are embarking on. I’ve had the pleasure of [...]

Ms. Heather Gilley, ME.d., Resident in Counseling

“We do not see things as they are, we see them- as we are.” Penned by Anais Ninn, this quote beautifully illustrates that our perspective, which is affected by our life experiences, greatly influences how we view our world. I love guiding clients to focus their mental lens on their sources of strength instead of their weeds of worry. “What we focus on grows,” penned Faustine Judd, and I couldn’t agree more. Let’s pull weeds together and create a beautiful garden in your mind and heart. Contentment and satisfaction in life are the by-product of accomplishing goals, knowing your purpose, [...]

“I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have the unique opportunity to help families overcome circumstances that they may have thought to be hopeless. No matter what issues that an individual or family may be struggling with, working to understand the family system and family history is imperative to me.
