women need support

We all deserve to have peace in our relationships and in our hearts.

Middle aged coupleAs a counselor, I specialize in working with women and I have found there are a lot of women who are stressed out, overwhelmed or frustrated in their lives or relationships.

Is the world a more stressful place now than it used to be? Yes, it is. That’s why women need more support and guidance than ever before.

We’re not supposed to figure this out all by ourselves but that’s what a lot of us do!

When I work with women in my counseling practice, the first thing I do is help them gain clarity as to what the issues are. We are usually the one in our family who tries to keep it all together. It can be nerve-wracking and tiring.

The next step is to help women see the choices before them.  We all have choices in our relationships and lives. Once we see those choices we start to develop confidence. And we want to feel confident.

We want to come from that place where we feel good about ourselves so that we can ask for our needs to be met in our relationships. We want to communicate clearly. Being in relationships can be very challenging and without the right tool set, it can feel like we’re swimming upstream.

This is a journey for all of us.

If you are struggling in your life or relationships, please give me a call.

No one should have to go through difficult times alone. I would love to help.

My name is Michelle Kelley and my goal is to help you navigate through the rough spots in your life and relationships. We all deserve to have peace in our relationships and in our hearts. I can offer you quick, proven strategies to help you get the relief you deserve. Please don’t wait any longer. Call me today (any time of day) at 703.505.2413.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I left your office so inspired today.
To say Michelle changed our lives would not be an exaggeration. She was very empathetic and non-judgmental... She didn't make our daughter feel badly... She didn't make my husband and myself feel like incompetent parents.
I definitely owe my newfound confidence to Michelle. Without her, I don’t know how I would’ve been able to come out of my horrible situation as such a better version of myself.
People don't understand Michelle doesn’t just offer advice… which they seem to be afraid of hearing. I convey the message that the decisions you make are ultimately your own but Michelle will help you find clarity and sort through emotions.
We felt comfortable knowing that Michelle would be the kind of counselor that would help our daughter see the good in herself, but also question some of her choices and actions.
You have brought back the communication ability that I thought that I lost. You helped her understand what we were feeling and she is such a better person for seeing you.
Michelle, you are so right about [my daughter] and how she thrives off of feelings of accomplishment. All seems to be good now. She amazes me every day with the way she is learning to handle tough situations.
With Michelle’s guidance, I was able to accomplish in approximately 8 months what I hadn’t been able to over the past 15 years.
I am forever grateful for Michelle's help.
Thank you, Michelle, for giving me my voice and a new lease on life.
