“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen” ~Brene´ Brown

Hi, I’m Tammy Hyland

M.A, LMFT

As clichéd as it sounds, life is surely filled with twists and turns, peaks and valleys.Haven’t we all wondered at some point, “What went wrong…Why me…How on Earth did I get here?” A difficult child or teen, a sick loved one, a relationship on the rocks, and unexpected job termination, a death, a divorce… these are just some of the things that can completely turn our world upside down and put us into a tailspin. Sometimes we are able to navigate through life’s struggles with strength and perseverance, other times we just need help.

Life experience is an important asset when counseling others, and I have plenty to draw from. At the age of 57 I have experienced the pain of divorce, both in childhood and as an adult. I have helped family members and friends who have experienced struggles associated with depression, anxiety, dependency, infidelity, divorce, parenting, step parenting and blended family issues. From a very early age, I had a yearning to understand human behavior and to grow through each experience.

Hi, I’m Jan Covyeau

M.A., AMFT

I am a Registered Associate with an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from the College of Psychology and Counseling at Hope International University. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in the corporate world over 25 years in the areas of education, sales, finance and most recently adoption. I discovered my passion for helping others in my role of Adoption Adviser in the emotionally charged adoption process. It is this passion and my own life challenges, healing and personal growth that served as the catalyst in my pursuit of becoming a therapist.

Entering this field later in life provided me with invaluable personal experiences which have played a key part in helping to better understand my clients and many of the issues they face. I have found my education and experience to be most effective in working with individuals, adolescents and couples that are facing various issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma or relational difficulties.
