It is important to find the right therapist for you.  Here is what some of my former clients have said about their counseling experience with me. This will help you to understand who I am, as a therapist.  It is my focus, goal and my passion to help you lead a happy and fulfilling life.

“You couldn’t go wrong with a sensitive, caring, deep and helpful therapist…and she is….she can understand and guide you on the deepest level, and show you the way to a full life, one that is satisfying and wonderful!”   Nancy M.

“Coming into counseling was our last option before divorce and to our surprise, through tools and techniques that we never knew existed, were taught to us by Evelyn, without any bias or being judgmental, helped us take the individual personal responsibility of changing ourselves, which eventually led to our relationship doing a 360° turnaround. After seventeen years, we are now equipped and able to deal with everyday struggles and issues as a married couple should, where normally before, it was impossible. We feel every couple seeking counseling should call Evelyn.  She is amazing!”  Monique/Andre J.

“Evelyn is an angel. She has helped me tremendously through what has been the most difficult time of my life. I had struggled with alcohol for 14 years, and in recent years, it had completely taken over my life, affecting my marriage, my career, and being a mother. I began seeing Evelyn when I felt I was at rock bottom. I attempted suicide and thankfully made a full recovery and Evelyn has been at my side every step of the way. She allows me to talk, vent, cry, and just let it all out. She provides guidance in a caring way. I have never been uncomfortable and always found utmost value after visiting with her.  I was always skeptical about going to therapy. I had a hard time believing that another person could truly help but since visiting with Evelyn, my life is starting to change for the better. I am now working on my sobriety and starting to see the light in life again. She is so very encouraging and continues to support me every step of the way. She has to be one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. I can call her anytime and she is very accommodating to my needs and schedule. I can’t thank Evelyn enough for all that she has done for me.”  (2011)

Update: (Three months after I began counseling sessions) – “I have reconciled with my husband (I was considering filing for divorce when I began counseling in Sept.), I have been sober since terminating counseling in December (only 3 1/2 months after I started going), I have returned to school to get my Master’s degree, and I am working toward starting my own business.  My entire life has changed completely in the 3 1/2 months I went to Evelyn for counseling.”

Last Update (Feb. 2013):  “I have maintained my sobriety since I saw Evelyn in 2011, am still married, and working through my Master’s program.”  Jessica R.

“Evelyn introduced me to a technique called EFT.  I can’t emphasize enough how EFT has changed my life completely and forever.  I had suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress for more than 40 years. I found Evelyn online, and decided to see what she had to offer that the V.A. didn’t offer me. I went through only three sessions of having her do EFT with me, and, as a result, I haven’t experienced any symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress (flashbacks, nightmares, paranoia, isolation, unbearable guilt, anxiety, fits of rage, emotional pain) since I saw her three years ago. She offers significant military discounts to make counseling affordable, and the investment is priceless. I have finally gotten my life back. Or, as she puts it……”gained a ‘new life’.”  I’m so thankful I came across New Life Counseling and found Evelyn. I will never be the same again!”  John T., USA  (Vietnam Vet)

“I was given a tool and I used it. EFT succeeded where prescription drugs, other forms of therapy, and booze failed. This I swear on my name and my oath. Semper Fi”   MSG Kenneth Lee S. (Ret) USMC

“I had recently ended a painful marriage and was reeling emotionally from the pain. I met Evelyn through a referral. Immediately, after meeting her, I felt a connection spiritually and emotionally. She is kind and loving but firm. You know she is invested in you. Evelyn challenged me to stay present with my problem and stay focused. She made sure I followed through with my counseling plan. I felt she really helped me and would recommend her highly.”  Paula G.

“I went to Evelyn because I had problems with anger that I couldn’t control. I didn’t know where to turn for help, but I knew I needed to find out what was causing my anger and what to do about it. It was destroying my life. She was so caring and patient with me while offering me ways to manage my anger and get past it. I learned so much about myself during the time I went to her for counseling. Now there is hope for my future relationships with women, as well as my family and friends. The help she gave me was invaluable. I don’t know where I’d be today, if it wasn’t for Evelyn.”  Jason B.

“I called 30 different counselors before I found Evelyn. I wanted someone I would feel comfortable talking to, because of the nature of my problems, and as soon as I heard her voice on the phone, I knew she was the right fit for me. She showed so much compassion, even before I met her for our first counseling session. I was abused during my childhood years, and then married an alcoholic who also abused me. I was suffering from severe depression and very low self-esteem, when I found Evelyn. She helped me through one of the toughest and lowest times of my life. I am so glad that I found her. Evelyn taught me how to forgive the people who hurt me so I could let go of my past, and begin a ‘new life’.”  Jennifer H.

Four Ways to Stay Hopeful about the Future

I’ve always believed that our thoughts are powerful—so powerful that they can influence what lies ahead. If we focus on our past difficulties and fears, we find ourselves struggling to nurture positive feelings about the next chapter. Here’s a plan for remaining optimistic.

1. Imagine the way you’d like your future to look.

Having a clear vision of what you desire evokes a sense of excitement, and issues an invitation to the future to pull you forward. Believing in your vision is the surest way to attract what you want in life; the key is to keep that vision energized with positive thoughts for tomorrow, regardless of what today looks like.

2. Move through your fear and let go of the past.

It’s natural for human beings to fear the unknown, and the future falls into that category; none of us can predict what’s to come. But what we can control is our mind-set. Don’t hold yourself back because you’re afraid or because you’ve been hurt. Instead, acknowledge your fear, accept it, and walk through it with confidence. Letting go is like a mental, emotional, and spiritual delete button. It doesn’t change what happened, but it removes that event’s power to continue hurting you. Until you make peace with your difficult memories, that pain will continue to bleed into your current and future experiences.

3. Stop rehearsing your limitations.

Talking constantly about what you cannot do and do not have can become habitual, and talking about what you don’t want to happen—”I don’t want to be single forever!” “I don’t ever want to go through that again!” “I don’t want to be broke!” – can end up becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.

4. Live well today.

Often our lives are so overwhelming, over-committed, and exhausting that it feels like we will never accomplish everything we set out to. This leads us to believe that tomorrow will bring us more of today……..a day in which we’ll continue to be stressed. To pump some life and excitement into your future possibilities, you need to be joyful, peaceful, and grateful for what you have and what you’re doing right now. This means spending time resting, working, learning, nourishing, preparing, and loving. When we do things that keep us feeling alive and hopeful, we learn to look forward to a brighter and better future.
