Welcome to Calico Counseling! 

Welcome to Calico Counseling!

It can be hard to decide when to seek therapy, how exactly to begin, and what therapeutic approach is best for your specific needs. 


Marla Hylton can help answer these questions and guide you through the process of therapy at Calico Counseling.  

At Calico Counseling you will receive individualized care starting with your first phone call. Marla believes personalized care is best and prefers to talk with her clients directly. After an appointment is made you will be welcomed with a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere to share issues & concerns. Marla will listen to you and together you will create a customized ‘roadmap’ to address your concerns. Therapy is a process to help gain understanding and insight into ourselves and our relationships to determine if change is desired - and then learning how to achieve it. Marla will guide you through this process while exploring your options and possibilities. 

Calico Counseling specializes in Individual & Couples Therapy and Mediation for every day people. 

We look forward to hearing from you! 

Calico Counseling's response to the COVID-19 Virus
To help slow the spread of COVID-19, Calico Counseling, Marla Hylton, will no longer be seeing clients in-person starting Monday March 23rd through at least April 30th, 2020. The April 30th date may be extended depending on CDC, state and local recommendations.  Although this has been a difficult decision Marla feels it is important for all of us to do our part in making sure the virus is not spread and that as a community we remain as healthy as possible. 

Therapy Options:
Marla will still be available Monday through Thursday to schedule phone calls and possibly on-line video sessions. You will be billed at the end of the phone call or video session via your credit card. Phone calls & video sessions will be scheduled at 15 minute intervals. If you would like to schedule feel free to email and Marla will get back with you as soon as possible.

If you prefer to wait for an in-person session you can schedule those sessions at anytime for April 30th or later. 

As always if you feel like hurting yourself or someone else please go to the nearest hospital or call 911 immediately. 

Mediation Options:
Marla will not be taking any new mediation cases until she returns to the office April 30th or later. If you would like a referral please email Marla. 

The Carmel 40 Hour Domestic Relations Mediation Training: 
If you are a class participant please email Marla with questions at Marla@CalicoCounseling.com 

Request:
If you do become sick or find out you have been exposed to the virus and have had a recent appointment with Marla please email her this information. 

If you have an appointment scheduled in-person before March 23rd and are unable to make it, feel sick, have a temperature or are no longer comfortable coming to the office you can cancel your appointment at the last minute with no consequence. Calico Counseling Clients will not be billed for canceled sessions or no showing (although Marla would greatly appreciate communication if you are unable to attend).

A Note from Marla:
I hope in the midst of this pandemic that we all try to support our families, friends and communities. I would also encourage everyone to have patience with each other. There is a wide range of responses to this situation from extreme fear to dismissiveness. Each person has good reasons for how they feel, please honor each other’s differences. 

I hope everyone stays healthy and well! Make the best of your time away from every day activities. 

I look forward to seeing all of my clients following the pandemic and will schedule in-person sessions as soon as it’s safe to do so. Thank you for your understanding during this situation. 

Sincerely, 
Marla Hylton MSW, LCSW, Mediator
