Kathleen Stutts

Therapist, Life Coach, Marriage Counselor, Dating Coach

Kathleen Stutts, M.Ed., NCC, LPCC

“Hi, I’m Kathleen. I've been told that I have a gentle, thoughtful approach to therapy, marriage counseling and life coaching that puts people at ease, and makes it easy to talk about even the toughest issues. I create a caring, non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere that makes it safe to get into deeper contact with yourself. I also use a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (the most well researched and effective form of therapy) and solution focused, strategic coaching. This makes working with me extremely productive, because it helps you harness your own strength to create lasting positive changes -- through the use of proven techniques.

In addition to my work with individuals as a Therapist, Life Coach, and Dating Coach, I love helping couples reconnect and restore their strong bond. I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and The Gottman Method to help couples understand each other, and create the trust and emotional safety they are longing to feel with each other. Whether I serve you as a Therapist, Life Coach, Dating Coach or Relationship Coach, I'm all about helping you have better relationships: With your soul-mate, your friends and family... and with yourself."

“Hi, I'm Hilary. I have over twenty years of experience as a Career Coach, Executive Coach and Business Coach. I have successfully helped hundreds of people gain deeper understanding about themselves, their strengths, and their passions -- and then use that information to move confidently forward in positive career and life choices. I have Master's Degrees in both Administration and Career Development, and have years of experience working with C-Level executives and directors at international companies including Apple, Facebook and Boeing become more effective and inspiring, and able to lead teams towards amazing things. I want to do the same for you.

My main priority is helping you discover new skills, strategies, and opportunities that allow you to function at the very highest level of your potential. I can help you in every aspect of your career and professional development, from identifying your ideal career (and landing that dream-job), to personal productivity strategies, to effective leadership and team-building, to achieving a healthy work / life balance and avoiding burnout, to navigating tricky office politics, to time management coaching, to effective communication strategies for every personality type.

Ari Kipnis, M.S.W., LCSW

Hi, I’m Ari.  I am a bilingual English / Spanish marriage counselor, therapist, and love, life and career coach. I have over ten years of experience in helping individuals, couples and families make positive and long-lasting transformations, and achieve fulfilling and satisfying relationships.

I enjoy helping my clients gain new understanding and acceptance of themselves, as well as learning practical new skills that allow real and lasting change to happen. Whether in your life, your relationships, or your career, my goal is always to help you feel happier, and tap into the authentic part of you that lives clearly, fearlessly and intentionally.
