Team Group: Individual Relationship Issues

Rachel Klein, MA

Rachel is the hardest working person we know.  She devotes every fiber of her being into helping her clients find the connection they’ve lost.  We’ve never seen anything quite like it.  When she sets her mind to helping people – things happen that we can’t quite explain.  She takes impossible situations and transforms them with grace and ease.  When we mine deeper for understanding of her methods it becomes clear.  The recipe for Rachel’s secret sauce is first laying a base of love and compassion and adding in heaps of unwavering belief in her clients’ ability to heal and live a connected and loving life.  Her hard work and dedication are simply the activating agent. 

When we first met Rachel, we wondered how this drive and commitment to her clients’ well-being might be sustainable.  We understand now that her humor and levity make it possible for her to keep that edge of driving her clients and also helping them to feel valued and cared for. 

If you’re tired of disconnection and strife and want to get moving – you’ve found a great fit in Rachel. 

Trisha Witmer, MA

Trisha is our resident wise sage.  There are many mysteries which surround her.  Like, how does she get clients to feel so understood and make such incredible movement?  How does she see through all of the superficial problems and chaos to reveal the loving connection underneath?  How is she able to be so straightforward and forthright and still maintain her clients’ affection? 

After endless hours of inquiry – we finally understand at least part of these mysteries.  The answer is surprisingly simple.  Trisha believes in the dignity of every human being.  She believes that we all have a potential that we’re evolving to and that each of us deserve to be loved and cared for.  There is something about that quiet belief that has Trisha refusing to accept anything but the best possible outcomes for her clients. If you’re fortunate enough to see Trisha – you’ll understand why wisdom and belief are such critical factors in relationship transformation.

Trisha sees clients when they can actually come to therapy– so she has both daytime and evening appointments available.

Fiona McGovern, MA

Fiona is a straightforward person. Not in a rude way– but in a ‘let’s get stuff done now’ way.  Fiona cares deeply about her clients and she knows that change won’t happen if the only thing a couples therapist does is listen.  Effective couples therapy requires action, too.  Fiona DOES listen, and then she priorities her client’s goals.  She has a passionate commitment to helping her clients connect and communicate in ways they’ve rarely experienced before. 

We are fascinated with Fiona because, somehow, she is able to garner her clients’ trust while simultaneously holding them extremely accountable for the work they need to do in order to live the life she knows they can have.  If you want someone who will sit back and reflectively listen – it’s probably best to move on.  If you want someone who refuses to waste your time in anything inane and inconsequential, if you want someone who will accept nothing but your best – both in what you can provide and also in the type of relationship you will find, then you’ve found the best fit we can imagine in Fiona.  

Breana Foley, MS, LAMFT

Bre is the embodiment of passion and everything that is good about couples therapy.  We have never met anyone who can hold a candle to how much pure raw enthusiasm Bre brings to her couples and the couples therapy field.  She is voracious when it comes to getting to know and understand their struggles.  Nothing, I tell you, nothing will stand in her way.  We love that about her.

Bre’s deep well of knowledge about spirituality and sexuality gives her the ability to see struggles from a larger holistic, mind-body perspective.  This perspective gives her the vantage point to see solutions the rest of wouldn’t dream of.  When you combine that perspective with her incredible knack for creativity – her clients report they see and act in ways they only dreamed of.  Whatever your struggle is, no matter the complexity – Bre would love to be your guide. Bre has a particular passion for working with adults and children with disabilities or other health concerns, as well as their families.

Bre works evenings and weekends (as well as some daytimes) so that you can come to therapy when it works for you.

Sam Egertson, MA

In Sam, you couldn’t find a better listener if you tried.  And we assure you – we’ve really tried.  Sam is meticulous when it comes to understanding the intricacies of what make his couples work, and what causes them to falter.  This intentionality aids him in understanding even the most complex and confusing relationship dynamics.  When we’re confused, Sam is our first resource.

Sam is especially gifted in understanding communication difficulties, addiction and infidelity.  There is something profound about being and feeling understood.  But Sam also knows understanding is only the first half of helping his couples transform.  Sam isn’t merely a paraphraser (just repeating your words back to you).  No, no.  He is a wellspring of knowledge and resources he uses to find the openings for change and growth and helping his clients be better.  And that’s where his understanding of relationships helps him to target precisely what his clients need to do in order to regain the love they’ve lost.  

Sam takes evening appointments, just to make it easier for you to get the care you need.
