Gottman Method Couples Therapy



I love counseling children, adults, couples, and families.


I offer affordable counseling in north San Antonio with day, evening, and Saturday appointments available.


It has been a privilege to assist children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in times of changes, uncertainty, adjustments, and struggles. There are many different reasons to seek counseling in all stages of your life. Some reasons are to understand yourself and others better, improve communication, assist with marital changes, and difficult life changes or moments. Life throws us curves sometimes and we may feel stuck due to behaviors, influences, and circumstances.


I use an eclectic approach to counseling. This means that I am trained in numerous therapeutic approaches. In a counseling session we will explore emotional and cognitive barriers, past and present relationships, and collaboratively devise therapy goals. I would like to help assist you in a safe and therapeutic environment to provide some tools, support, or coping and problem solving skills in a nonjudgmental and caring environment. 


I have over 12 years of experience working in a business environment. I gradutated with honors as a member of Chi Sigma Iota. I also have over 8 years of experience working in an educational setting as a certified school counselor and a certified teacher.  Many of the children refer to me as Mrs. Friese (Mrs. Freeze).  I work with children and adolescents on a variety of issues.  I may use play, talk, or art therapy in my counseling sessions depending on the need of the child or adolescent and situation.  I am trained in Gottman Method Couple Therapy Level 1 and 2. This is additional training based on over 35 years of research on what makes relationships last. I can provide an ADD questionnaire. The results can then be taken to the pediatrician, family doctor, or psychiatrist.
