Who We Serve

We are here to assist individuals, couples, families and youth. We also provide services to employees of companies and organizations that have endured high levels of stress or from traumatic experiences occurring at the workplace.

Why seek counseling?

If you have come to a place in your life or relationship where you feel confused, afraid, or lost and do not know which way to turn, an experienced counselor listens, understands, and asks sensible questions to find answers that lie within you and helps you to gain clarity and a new perspective.

Our lives and relationships are made happier, more fulfilling, and more productive with periodic counseling, coaching, or guidance as we move through the necessary changes we all experience.

Coping with, adapting to, or accepting the changes that we experience are less stressful or lonely when we receive help in making shifts in our thoughts, behaviors, or emotions.

Relationships can be a great source of human joy as well as a source of pain, whether the relationship is with others or with ourselves. Getting guidance for repetitive patterns of conflict, an impasse regarding a decision, or a major life issue with children, stepfamilies, relocation, or even an economic crisis can help to find the way to shared solutions.

Couples and/or family therapy helps by providing an opportunity for all parties involved to be heard and brings another perspective into the issue. For more information on psychotherapy in general, please click here.

Alternate Modalities

Sometimes the answers can be found through a special approach, such as a simple reflective period focusing on developing your internal listening skills or documenting deeply personal thoughts in a journal. Perhaps a deeper connection with a particular spiritual aspect is necessary to sift through life’s troubles.

Alternate modalities provide unique solutions to life’s gifts/problems. These types of alternate modalities may even guide to you to an answer faster than traditional therapy.
