Evelyn Schmechtig Cochran, Marriage & Family Therapist


My name is Evelyn and I am the owner and clinical director of Windows of Opportunity Counseling Services. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been practicing psychotherapy for almost 30 years. I love what I do and feel privileged to be able to do what I am passionate about, which is helping people, supervising clinicians as they apply Emotionally Focused Therapy, and building a private practice.

My parents emigrated from Germany and Brazil. From this background, I inherited a great interest in culture and a lively yet down-to-earth and logical style. I strive to be sensitive and compassionate and people tell me I have a lighthearted yet calming presence. When I am with people my aim is to provide an open, curious, encouraging and safe healing space for individuals, couples and families.

I work with people who are not only excited about life, love, work, personal and relationship growth but who are strong and courageous and may have hit a road block and are seeking support and really want to grow. I believe that with the right support we can overcome almost any obstacle in life. My specialties include trauma resolution, marital and couple therapy, and family counseling. My heart's desire is to help people reach their highest potential by helping them heal themselves and their most important relationships. Attachment theory is my primary orientation. I believe that feeling securely connected to those most important to you is the foundation of growth and productivity.

I just love this quote, "Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away." ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859 Isn't this what we all long for?
