Turning Life’s Challenges into Opportunities for Growth
We help you learn to express your feelings in productive ways. You can learn to communicate with each other so that both parties feel heard and understood. You can also learn how to compromise and get on the same page with things such as chores, kids, parenting, etc. Start working together to build skills and techniques that move your relationship in a healthy and fulfilling direction.
We utilize the Cognitive Behavioral Approach to work through your anxiety and/or depression. We will help you reduce your symptoms by working on helping you get to the root of the issues. We teach coping skills to use when the symptoms starts to increase and help you identify how to counter those feelings before they become overwhelming. Being able to keep your anxiety and depression under control is life changing.
We provide a supportive space to work on issues that are going on in your life. A professional listening ear to bounce ideas off of, that is not tied to friends and family offers a more freeing way to express yourself. We have a nonjudgmental approach that can help provide skills and techniques that you can use to work through your individual challenges.
Unfortunately, we sometimes go through very serious traumas in our lives. Here, we can help you work through these traumas, so they do not keep haunting you. This is a safe confidential space to express the hard things surrounding these traumatic events in your life.
Do you find yourself struggling to regulate your emotions? There are various techniques, coping skills, and strategies to help regulate these emotions so you’re expressing your anger in health ways. It’s never too late to feel comfortable with your emotions and master them to enrich your life and your relationships with family, co-workers, and friends.
People tend to say parenting does not come with a handbook and that is true, but we can help be that handbook. Our therapists will follow your lead and offer helpful guidance on your parenting journey. We provide psychoeducation on boundary setting, how best to utilize rewards and consequences and teach skills to help children/teens regulate their emotions.
Do you have anxiety when you go to social events such as parties or get togethers? Do you struggle thinking about going to work or landing that job interview because your anxiety kicks in. We can help you lower your anxiety and increase your ability to socialize in a productive, healthy way.
Our therapists can help you work through the underlying issues that contribute to lowering your self-esteem and provide skills and techniques to rebuild that confidence locked way inside you. We help you learn how to set healthy boundaries with yourself and others, so negativity bounces off of you, your head is held high, and life becomes more manageable.
Life is full of challenges and we are here to help you work through them at your own pace.
We provide a practical non-judgmental approach that focuses on helping you overcome obstacles, based on where you are.

Counseling is for everyone… A neutral party to talk through changes happening in your life.
Aret oporteat inciderint te est. Sed no errem deseruisse.
Most people can benefit from therapy at least some point in their lives. Sometimes the signs are obvious, but at other times, something may feel slightly off and you can’t figure out what it is. So you trudge on, trying to sustain your busy life until it sets in that life has become unmanageable. Before it gets to this point, here are five signs that indicate you may need help from a pro:
1. Feeling sad, angry, or otherwise “not yourself.”
2. Abusing drugs, alcohol, food, or sex to cope.
3. You’ve lost someone or something important to you.
4. Something traumatic has happened.
5. You can’t do the things you like to do.
