Individual Counseling and Psychotherapy

Couples Counseling can help couples in all kinds of intimate relationships — regardless of sexual orientation or marital status.

Providing you guidance, support, encouragement & information to create change.

Individual Therapy provides you with guidance, encouragement, and support, and the information and tools you need to empower you to make the lasting positive change.

In sessions, we may explore your past and present, discuss your current struggles, and clarify your goals. During our time we will also explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, beliefs, values, your individual strengths and so on. This will help us collaborate on a treatment plan, providing a road-map for your healing and growth.

People come to counseling for a variety of reasons. You might be struggling with a mental health concern like depression, anxiety, substance use, an eating disorder, or trauma. Or you might be going through a life transition. You desire to improve your relationship with yourself or a loved one.

We work with adults facing a variety of issues. No issues are too great or too small. There are a few areas we're particularly passionate about:

  • Adults healing from Childhood Wounds
  • Anxiety, Worry, & Stress
  • Depression & Sadness
  • Postpartum (Depression & Anxiety)
  • Body Image, Weight-loss, and Disordered Eating
  • Self-Esteem & Self-Worth
  • Substance Use
  • Life Transitions
  • Trauma (Verbal, Emotional, Physical, and Sexual)
  • Women's Issues
  • Parent Issues & Stress

Although our therapists have specific areas of interest, we can help you with a number of issues. As a therapist, we help individuals with a wide array of issues. We choose to help heal and treat the whole person rather than just one specific disorder.

We appreciate the complexity of the human condition and honor your individual journey. While you might be seeking a counselor to help you with specific symptoms, mental health disorder, or looking for additional support as you experience a life transition; ultimately we've found people may come to therapy with one issue but quickly discover other issues underneath the surface. What does this mean?

Well, for instance, you might seek help with depression but after careful exploration, you begin to discover the source of the depression. The source might be low self-esteem, a relationship issue, substance abuse, trauma, another source or a combination. Having a quality mental health counselor who desires to help you with a variety of issues, therefore, is beneficial.

Choosing a psychotherapist is a deeply personal process.

It's important to find someone who's not only knowledgeable but also someone you feel comfortable sharing your inner world with. A person who you can connect to and let down your walls; allowing you to be open, honest and vulnerable. Studies have found the connection you have with your therapist is more important than any particular technique or modality your therapist might use.

Our therapists are here to support you. 

  • Are you tired of feeling nervous and anxious? Feeling isolated and lonely? Feeling sad or depressed?
  • Are persistent negative thoughts about yourself getting in the way? Struggling with low self-esteem?
  • Do you want to stop using substances to cope? Are you ready to find freedom from alcohol or drugs?
  • Are you still struggling with painful childhood memories as an adult? Have you experienced trauma?
  • Are you ready to gain clarity, navigate painful life experiences, reconnect with yourself, and others?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have come to the right place. We can help you.
