Looking for guidance when life situations are overwhelming is a sign of health and maturity. I believe in emphasizing and building on strengths and connecting with abilities with which you may have lost connection.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have worked with couples and families for over 25 years to help them overcome obstacles to a better family relationship.

I am active in the counseling process and will give you input and observations.  I am not just a passive listener.  Together, we can find solutions to your concerns.  You CAN turn things around and make progress.

I am a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and help people with addictive problems to avoid relapse risks, overcome obstacles, and move on to a life of sobriety.  My experience as a recovering alcoholic/addict with more than 30 years of recovery helps me relate to others who want to be sober.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, I want to help you engage your subconscious mind in the healing process.  The subconscious mind is a powerful ally.  I am a Certified Diplomate in Clinical Hypnotherapy with over 25 years of experience in using hypnosis and Rapid Resolution Therapy  to clear traumas, reduce fears and phobias, end habits like smoking or other addictions, and help with weight loss, sports enhancement, pain management, or additional personal issues.

I am enthusiastic about helping with mental health and addiction concerns.  I want to aid you to improve your situation and guide you into seeing different perspectives.  There ARE healthy coping skills you can learn.  I know you are as worthy and deserving of good things in your life as anyone else.  Because of what has happened, you may forget that.  Things don’t have to stay the same.  You CAN turn things around.

Hi, I’m Welby Ramos I can help you with a variety of life issues. I want to empower you to explore and find solutions that work for you. You may be struggling with a variety of life challenges with relationships, feelings, and trauma. I employ a variety of approaches and am non-judgmental.

My perspective is that the problems you are experiencing are part of a greater pattern of emotions, thoughts, and actions that have guided how you see yourself. Together we can uncover the root of these patterns and free the positive core of who you are. I want you to feel supported and understood in therapy and to know that you can grow away from unhealthy patterns and improve the way you feel, think, and act.
