Liberate yourself

Therapeutic Counseling to help you live a more fulfilled and centered life

Dr. Fortunato is by far the best therapist I’ve gone to. She’s personable, patient, and extremely apt at figuring out what I need even when I can’t quite explain or figure it out. I would recommend, and have recommended, her to any of my friends or family.

Free yourself from whatever is holding you back from living the life you envision

Recognizing our limits and vulnerabilities and asking for help is not easy for many people. We all face challenges at some point in our lives that can surpass our coping abilities and render us confused, distressed or ineffective. 

It is a courageous choice to take charge and to seek support in order to change.

You carry within you the potential to succeed in meeting your goals.  Sometimes, the clarity and actions necessary to achieve this are difficult to determine and implement, but you do not have to make these discoveries alone.

Working together, we will uncover the strengths within you and develop an understanding of the obstacles interfering with your quality of life.We will create a treatment plan and approach that enables you to live free from confining beliefs and behaviors and to take charge of your life.


Change is possible

The first step is to believe it and envision the life you desire

How do you take the first step?

The most important part of any therapeutic pursuit is the relationship with your provider, so it has to be a good fit. If you are curious to see if you can benefit from my services, let’s have a conversation.

1. CONTACT ME: The first thing you need to do is connect by filling out my contact form.

2. WE’LL TALK ON THE PHONE: I’ll phone you back and we’ll schedule an intake session.

3. WE’LL MEET: At the intake session I’ll learn more about your specific needs, and I can let you know how I can help you. If this seems like a good fit for both of us, we’ll plan a regular time for us to work together.

4. WE’LL MAKE A PLAN: In our regular sessions, we will start by building a trusting relationship and fully assessing your presenting concerns in the first few sessions. Then we will develop a treatment plan with specific goals to overcome the obstacles you’ve identified and move you toward living a more manageable, joyful, positive and fulfilled life.
