Dr. Andrea
PhD, Founder

I created The Help Couch to facilitate positive change for individuals and couples. Intimate relationships, parenting, growing up, work, school, and social commitments - we understand how trying everyday life can be when things are out of balance. You are not alone in your challenges and you do not have to carry the weight by yourself. Together we will cultivate greater confidence, build richer, more intimate and fulfilling relationships and improve your feelings and behaviors.

Specializing in self-worth, intimate relationships, and family systems, our approach helps individuals and couples overcome conflicts and keep passion alive. We help people conquer problematic behaviors and improve mental health and functioning.

I care deeply about my work and the people we see. I have strived to hire a great group of therapists while creating a practice based on honesty, integrity, and empathy. Our style is warm and non-judgmental, and the therapeutic approach is tailored to meet your needs. We look forward to joining you on your path to well-being.

Hello, I’m Kathryn and I specialize in perinatal mental health. I hold a PMH-C certification which means I have specialty training in the assessment, support, and treatment of those who wish to begin a family, who are pregnant, or are in the postpartum period. My expertise along with my passion for this facet of life provides me the tools and understanding to support you while we explore the depth, complexity, and newness of emotions that often arise throughout the perinatal experience.

 

I aim to become a solid and trusted source of support in your life throughout the challenges, disappointments, and joys!  I am here to listen, to help, to understand, and to walk alongside you as we delve into –

  • Expectations, vulnerabilities, and challenges

  • Parental roles

  • Identity shifts

  • Pregnancy loss, neonatal loss, or NICU experiences

  • Fertility 

 

I have been a practicing counselor for 12 years and utilize an eclectic therapy style consisting of cognitive behavioral, narrative, and strengths-based therapy approaches. Don’t worry about “where you are” in your journey, a rewarding therapy process can start at any point. You do not have to navigate any of this alone. Let’s create a plan of wellness together!
