About  Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez

In-office sessions have resumed, welcome back :) I bring my energy of problem solving, compromise and hope to every session with you. I feel this is an essential ingredient as to why my clients overwhelmingly have positive outcomes from our work. Zoom sessions are also an option.

All relationship styles welcome!

I work with individual adults, co-parents and couples (partners) to work through issues surrounding:

  • Sex & Intimacy
  • Communication
  • Infidelity
  • Difficult Life Transitions
  • Recovery after Divorce
  • Grief & Loss
  • Non-Adversarial Divorce
  • Co-Parenting 
  • Depression & Anxiety

Working with Couples (Partners): 

One of the first things that I help couples with is to determine whether they want to repair the relationship despite their challenges and if so, they enter Couples therapy.  Here is a video which will show how I will work with your and/or your partner:

If both members of the couple agree,  we will collaborate and implement a plan to re-launch your relationship into one that feels better, more supportive, has less conflict, and more laughter. Often couples forget how to appreciate their partners in small ways each day. Appreciation fosters goodwill toward each other, which leads to staying connected despite the busy lives we all lead.

If at least one member of the couple does not feel like working on the relationship, then I suggest that couples take a look at Discernment Counseling. Here is a video where I discuss more about what Discernment Counseling is:

Some couples come to me with intentions and/or actions to divorce, if this is the case, then we talk about slowing down the process,giving each member of the couple space to breathe, and time to reflect on how they have gotten to this point. For some partners who insist they want to change the dynamic of the relationship, I give them information and we begin to meet to discuss a Healing Separation. This is a structured process where I work with the couple to set up a step-by-step process of how to see if they can relaunch their marriage through setting new boundaries, etc.
