Welcome to Ocean Vista Counseling
We hope that you decide to walk through our doors at Ocean Vista Counseling to begin your journey to find clarity, hope, and purpose. We stand ready to walk this journey of growth and self exploration with you. Kathleen Coughlin and Jessica Plate focus on caring for the whole client, as every client we work with is unique. In sessions, you will identify the goals that you would like to work on, explore your past history, stressors, emotional responses, but most importantly help you learn to build on your inherent strengths.
Some clients seek counseling because they may be facing relationship issues, communication difficulties, stress related to juggling home and work balance, past traumatic experiences, and/or family dynamics. Both Kathleen and Jessica have training working with clients experiencing anxiety, chronic pain, depression, family concerns, marital and relationship issues, grief and loss, trauma, work stress, and adjustments to unexpected changes in life. At Ocean Vista Counseling, we will help you understand the root cause of your struggles and help you to develop long-lasting strategies to live the life that you choose. If you are ready to start writing the next chapter in your life book, our therapists are here to guide you through the process.
Empower yourself, reach out for support, & let us help you map out your plan. We look forward to meeting you & supporting you on your journey.
"Each day brings new challenges, new thoughts, and many possibilities....
Empower yourself to make changes"
