When you are talking about your marriage, your family, your career or yourself,
be sure you choose someone who has the experience to help.

Psychotherapy Services

  • Life frequently presents us with developmental challenges.  Coping with the loss of a job, or a loved one, choosing a new life path and recognizing the end of one life stage, all are part of our lifetime of growth.  Sometimes, these can seem overwhelming.  Therapy can help.


  • Therapy is more than "just talking".  Research has shown therapy is as effective as medication in treating anxiety, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder.


  • Couples Counseling or Group therapy can be an ideal way to address relationship issues.  Sometimes, individuals find that they are inadvertantly doing things that interfere with their enjoyment of relationships.  Clarifying expectations, and communication, can make a great difference in your satisfaction in your relationships.


  •  For people in recovery from alcohol or substance abuse, therapy can be helpful in having someone to talk with about the daily struggle of sobriety.  In Stage 2 Recovery, people with some years of sobriety often choose to address relationship issues and faulty learning they experienced in childhood.


  • Eating Disorders such as over-eating, anorexia or bulimia present special challenges.  It is important to find someone with special expertise in order to maximize your chances of success.  Please visit DrStephanieHaymaker.com to learn more about eating disorders and treatment.

About Psychotherapy

  • Sometimes, when you start therapy, it's hard to know where to begin. I will work to help you feel comfortable in discussing the issues that brought you to therapy - what is going on in your life now, and what has happened in the past.  Together, we will identify patterns and goals to work on.
  • Psychotherapy is an investment in yourself.  It is an investment of time, and an investment of money.  It is also an investment of trust.  I understand that if you are considering therapy, there are important issues that brought you to this point.
