About Evelyn

Are you seeking a therapist or counselor who is warm, compassionate, intuitive, sensitive to and concerned about the needs and feelings of others, and in whom you can trust completely? There’s no need to look any further. You have found that here. My passion, goal, and commitment are to help others push through their struggles, offer tools to resolve issues, face and rise above challenges, overcome obstacles, and build healthy self-esteem. My personal experiences have enabled me to cultivate an empathic, caring, and non-judgmental approach, and to relate to my clients’ experiences. They have allowed me to develop a keen insight into the causes and solutions to personal hindrances, and helped me gain an incisive understanding of myself, my clients, and how I can empower them to create the life they want and deserve.

My role as a psychotherapist is that of a catalyst for self-discovery, positive change, personal growth, and healing, which, ultimately, leads to a ‘new life’. Although I address other issues in my practice, my specialties are Domestic Violence and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

My 14+ years of counseling experience includes working with adolescents (individually and in a group therapy setting) in a residential treatment center for at-risk youth, home-based counseling and working in a community mental health center. I also provided free grief and Post-Traumatic Stress counseling to survivors at Ground Zero during the 9/11 incident, of the Columbine High School massacre, and the Aurora (Colorado) theater shooting. In 2008, I opened my private practice and also facilitate support groups for victims of domestic violence and human trafficking, female veterans and wives of active duty military.

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a Life Coach, Career Coach, Nutrition Consultant, Motivational Speaker and an author.

Steps to Change Dysfunctional Living

Are you tired of living a dysfunctional and unhappy life? Are you aware that you have the power to change that? First, we must acknowledge that it is dysfunctional. Then, we need to take action to make positive changes. Here are steps to change your dysfunctional living:

1. Acknowledge that we are responsible for creating our own emotional problems.

2. Accept that we have the ability to change disturbances significantly.

3. Recognize and distinguish emotional problems from irrational beliefs.

4. Clearly perceive these beliefs.

5. See the value of disputing self-defeating beliefs.

6. Accept that we must work hard in emotional and behavioral ways to counteract irrational beliefs and dysfunctional feelings and behaviors. Nobody is truly happy living a dysfunctional life. The good new is….we can change that!

Irrational Ideas

Examples:       I must have love or approval from all significant people in my life.

                        I must perform important tasks completely and perfectly.

                        If I don’t get what I want, it’s terrible and I can’t stand it.
