Paula Butler a licensed marriage and family therapist as well as a licensed/certified addiction counselor. She is committed to helping individuals and couples find resiliency, meaning and purpose in their lives.

William Shakespeare wrote, "This above all, to thine own self be true." As a therapist, my role is to help you become true to yourself by working through old narratives, unhealthy patterns, and discouraging self-talk that prevent you from being the person you would like to be. Although your family environment, early experiences, past and current social interactions, have played an important role in the development of your personality and perspective on life, they do not have to define your future.

Facing the fears and worries you may have been avoiding is a sign of strength, whether you are a teen, adult, or couple. I applaud your courage. It means you are ready to challenge thoughts, beliefs and experiences that could be an underlying source of suffering for you. And it shows you are able to embrace feelings that have something important to tell you, even if those feelings are temporarily unpleasant. We will not always stick to a strict sixty minute session. If we are into something important, we do not have to stop on the spot. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about myself or my practice.
