Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists Committed to Helping
People Create and Sustain Meaningful Relationships
We are committed to the healing of distressed and broken relationships because we believe family, relationships, and marriage really do matter. It is our hope that as we help people improve their relationships their lives will be filled with greater happiness and joy. We want to make the world a better place one relationship at a time.

At Windows of Opportunity Counseling Services we provide individual, couple, and family therapy and counseling. We believe therapy is about healing, change, and personal and relationship growth. We think that no matter what you have been through or are going through that life can get and be better for you. When you choose to start psychotherapy you are making an investment in your life.

Interpersonal and personal distress can manifest in many ways: stress, depression, anxiety, loneliness, compulsive or addictive behaviors (drug, alcohol, or sexual in nature), out of control eating, work problems, relationship conflict, and family discord. These are the types of things you can work toward resolving in therapy.

I just want to say that I have seem Evelyn on and off over the years for issues related to being a mother in a blended family. It has been great to know when we sometimes get stuck as a family in this very business and complicated world, we have a place to go to help us get unstuck. She has really helped us at crisis points in our family history. I think she makes everyone feel safe enough so that we all feel like we can say our part, be heard, and get to the bottom of things so we can find solutions.
