About Me

Dealing with marital issues can be difficult. Often times, people go to friends and family for help which can sometimes cause troubles to increase. I have extensive training in various treatment modalities which I taper to each couple's sessions. Communication issues can often be a large part of some issues. We can discuss and practice various dynamics which occur in relationships and help guide you to a stronger relationship.

I have 14 years experience in the counseling field. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion,. I welcome all couples.

Written by H.E. on Apr 28, 2021 after counseling with Viola for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Very easy to talk to.

I feel like V gives a lot of relatable analogies that make sense for me. She is extremely unbiased and doesn’t point fingers at one person being “the problem.” She gives us the tools to help better our relationship.

My girlfriend and I have only had two sessions with Viola so far, but she’s already cued in to many of our individual isms. She has no qualms pointing out key areas of conflict/discussion points, or calling us out on our crap in a light hearted but appropriately direct manner. I feel the shaky parts of our relationship will greatly improve with Viola’s assistance through increasing our ability to effectively communicate in more constructive methods.

Viola appears to approach the therapy with professionalism and has a soothing but stern manner about her as she keeps sessions completely under control and is great at steering y the direction of it towards a productive place.
