Adolescents Counseling

Relationships are complicated. when we unknowingly  keep doing the same things that we have always done, we tend to get the same results. If one person changes the whole relationship shifts. If both parties change you can create a brand new paradigm in your relationship.


Sometimes you just need a safe space to communicate and learn different marriage skills.

I believe that the passion and love that led you to commit to each other can be reignited with change from both of you. Every couple needs guidance and a tune up periodically. Even if one chose betrayal through infidelity or drugs your marriage can be healed. Learn how to create healthy boundaries as you travel this journey of healing, forgiving and creating a new and better relationship. 

Couples counseling is for married and unmarried committed couples. Hetero and LGBT couples are welcome and nurtured at Leesa Starrett wellness Center. Call today to get started on creating a new healthy relationship.

Adolescents Counseling

Teenagers have special concerns that differ from adults and children. I provide a safe space for your teen to explore great coping skills, self regulation and stress management. I have 18 years experience as a high school teacher and understand the struggles that todays teens are faced. I also work with parents who are trying to learn parenting skills that best meet their Childs situation.

(However, I will not testify in court on anyone's behalf without a judges subpoena. The parent requiring the testimony will pay all fees included in my informed consent letter.)


These sessions are designed to help your child heal and help you build a bridge to help your child grow.

"If you compare yourself with others you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself" ( Max Ehrman) Sometime circumstances or incidents from the past can become a barrier to leading your best life. Together we can explore these barriers and create a new narrative for a beautiful accepting life. You were born for goodness. we all hit chugholes in the road. You have the ability to bounce back. You are able to learn and implement resiliency skills. Your past does not define your present or future. You are worthy and able to live a life filled with joy despite the chaos.  You have a lot to give to others and the ability to manifest a joyful life. Maybe the best is yet to come. You have the ability to have compassion for yourself and others. Sometimes life is so complicated that we feel blinded by the circumstances. With therapy, together, with baby steps you can begin to see things clearer and baby step into a better life. It will be my honor to walk by your side on this journey of rediscovering you.

EMDR

How to avoid falling in love with a jerk or jerkette class

How to avoid falling in love with a jerk or jerkette class

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

It is a technique that is believed to rewire the brain to calmly accept the areas in which we are stuck. It helps diminish the overwhelming negative emotions associated with the event. Intellectually and emotionally there may be an incongruent gap. EMDR can bridge the gap, helping you feel what you know is true.

EMDR can help with anxiety, events from childhood, feelings of guilt or failue, phobias, and trauma. 

EMDR doesn't make you forget the trauma , but can help it feel like a distant memory without the emotional charge as though it is happening in the here. 

Together we will determine if EMDR is right for you.

Are  classes/coaching sessions the same as counseling?

No, these programs are educational  and coaching in nature only.

TELE THERAPY

TELE THERAPY

TELE THERAPY

Teletherapy is a great option for many clients. Basically we can offer distance therapy as long as you have a device with a camera. we will use Doxy.me to communicate. Our sessions will be private and have most of the benefits of face to face therapy. The advantage of no commuting to my office is a great timesaver. You can continue your therapy even if you are ill or on a tight schedule. The fees are the same and the convenience of having therapy right where you are is a great benefit. We can do all or part of counseling using teletherapy.
