Individual Counseling


Individual counseling is one of the most personalized ways to make significant progress in your life. Dr May approaches this opportunity through the lens of a therapist and coordinator, ensuring that you are receiving all of the necessary care elements to overcome your struggle.
By talking with you individually, you will be assisted to get to the heart of what is going on with your challenges, and you will be guided to develop a plan to overcome them. While many clients come to Dr May in the first few sessions out of necessity, most of her clients choose to stay for additional sessions as they become intrigued about their personal growth opportunities.  

 

Individual therapy with Dr. May will teach you:

  • The top 3 basic needs that need to be met for you to get better

  • Why you are responding and struggling the way you are in your life

  • What it takes to respond differently and to cope with the challenges in your life

  • How to create fulfilling relationships

  • How to define a life that is worth living

 

 

Couples Counseling


Even though relationships are one of the most important aspects of our lives as human beings, we very rarely learn exactly how to be in the kind of relationships we would like to have. We end up having relationships "by default" and do whatever it is that we learned growing up. Often times, we learned that when we are upset it is okay to yell, get mean, withdraw, or shut out the people that we love. These strategies prove to be effective defense mechanisms to keep YOU safe, but they have a hurtful impact on a relationship. The defense mechanisms speak into what YOU may need, but they do not speak into what the relationship needs. When couples feel frustrated, distant, and stuck, it is usually because they are in this defensive place. They are reacting instead of intentionally responding. They are in power struggle instead of true partnership.


....If this is YOU right now in your relationship, you may be thinking that you are "over it," and that there is "no chance for you."  But couples counseling with Dr. May using the IMAGO process will show you that it absolutely is possible to leave power struggle and to create the relationship you desire.  Through this very specialized approach, you will learn:

 

  • To deepen your connection with your partner

  • The best way to communicate, even under stress

  • To increase your understanding of yourself and your partner

  • What makes couples most successful

 
IMAGO couples therapy was featured on the Oprah Show numerous times and named "The Couples Counseling that really works!" When you give this approach a chance, you will see what a difference it makes for all of your relationships.

Eating Disorders
 

Eating Disorders are notorious for being secretive and shameful disorders, and they continue to be unless you break this cycle. Many people have a very difficult time believing that they deserve something different and that they can truly be themselves- all the good, bad, and ugly- in front of another human being. Many people have a very difficult time believing that they are WORTHY. However, I urge you to choose help...I really believe this is the biggest and most difficult step that will have you well on your way.

 

What is so important to know is that there is a better way to be in your life and in your body, even if you can't see it, or can't imagine it right at this moment. (You probably won't like hearing this but...) In order to learn how to be in your body and in your life in a true authentic way,you must speak up to a trusted someone about what is going on. Literally say out loud: "I am scared (sad, embarrassed, lonely, etc...) and I would like your help."

 
The BE Program

 

The BE Program is designed to support women around the world in developing a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. Because our society places a high value on what we do, how we look, and remaining busy, the simplicity of just BEING has become a challenge.

The BE Program is here to remind you of what matters most, and that is, who you really are. We want to assist you in discovering the REAL you that exists deep in your heart; the authentic you that emerges when your food and/or body issues are gone. It is our belief that when you are being this authentic YOU, even momentarily, not only will you be clear about who you are, but you will also unlock the greatest asset to your healing. By BEING  you and choosing from this authentic place, you move your life in the direction which you truly desire, AND this feels good!

 

The BE Program’s signature course is a cutting-edge, intensive educational online course that includes a variety of exercises for transforming food and body struggles. During the 8 week course, you will be taught our powerful 6 Core Principles, and you will then be supported in practicing the skills and applying them to your own life.  The BE Team and BE Community of like-minded women will be with you every step of the way, which will provide you with the accountability that truly helps people to grow and change at an exponential rate.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Develop a healthy relationship with food

  • Learn to powerfully manage your emotions

  • Create a community of support and encouragement

  • Feel good about the skin that you are in

  • Remove barriers so you can create an extraordinary life
