"Even the healthiest relationships experience some conflict. It's when conflict dominates your daily life that couples counseling can help."
- Chantal Hayes, Licensed Psychotherapist
Welcome to my psychotherapy practice! I opened Banyan Tree Counseling in 2014, focusing mainly on providing therapy to children, families, and individual adults. In the past several years I have become passionate about helping couples, and have obtained training in several methods of couples counseling, most notably the Gottman method, based on 40 years of psychological research with couples.
Couples experience me as an authentic, compassionate, and relatable therapist, where exploration and discovery is fostered through partnership and respect (and sometimes humor!) I look forward to talking with you about your specific needs and goals for couples therapy. I am always happy to offer appropriate referrals or other resources if we determine I am not the person best suited to help with your particular situation.
Though it can be difficult to make the decision to begin therapy, I have found that those who have sought help and take responsibility for their emotional heath and relationships have achieved remarkable results.
