My Approach to Helping
Hi, I am Joella, the Downtown Therapist and helping couples improve their relationship is my specialty! I believe counseling should be a positive experience and work hard to create a safe space to explore problems without either partner feeling attacked, blamed, or criticized. I help clients practice effective communication using research-based methods that are proven to be effective. My goal is to help create a mutually loving and respectful relationship, and for each partner to feel understood and have their needs met.
If you would like to have a better friendship, increase appreciation for one another, or improve emotional connection then couples counseling is for you. You will also learn how to manage conflict more effectively (even when you disagree), support one another, and create shared meaning together. Couples counseling is appropriate for anyone and is an investment in your future.
