Our Services


Are you living the life you want? Individual therapy is an effective way to explore the thoughts, feelings and actions that create anxiety, low self esteem, depression, shame, and anger. These obstacles hinder personal growth, sense of self, and fulfillment in life. In therapy we work to understand the context in which these problems arise while staying mindful and present. In part, that means we're not just going to say, "Tell me about your mother," or "How does that make you feel?" Those are important questions that we'll cover, but it is not our driving force - we are not the cliché of a therapist. We will help you develop skills and tools to reflect and respond rather than be reactive, avoidant, or frozen when obstacles arise. By strengthening your tools and integrity, you can start to align intention with action. We will create the opportunity together to embody the change you want in your life.


Family therapy is an opportunity to harness and strengthen family communication, understanding, and resources. Family members work collaboratively with us to improve their communication and develop an understanding of how problems can affect each member as well as the family as a whole. We build on strengths to facilitate change and develop new ways to solve problems and resolve conflicts that come from stressors like blended families, underperformance at school, birth of a new sibling, unemployment, financial responsibility, relocation, substance abuse, mental illness, divorce, grief and loss. A healthy family system provides an environment for each member to have a voice and be heard so that the whole family can learn to thrive together.


Couples therapy provides a safe space to identify rigid patterns of interacting and explore challenges within a relationship. Couples have the opportunity to gain new perspectives by learning to listen to each other with understanding and compassion rather than reactivity and judgment. In this way, couples learn to actually communicate and manage conflict more effectively by building upon a foundation of trust and intimacy. We may not be able to resolve all conflict, however, we can work toward a better understanding and acceptance of differences. It is important to maintain the balance of expressing oneself as an individual while growing as a couple. This growth allows couples to celebrate shared values and develop a more intimate partnership. 


We can also assist couples in planning for treatment when issues affect both the individuals and the relationship, and therapy feels needed but the options are overwhelming.


Adolescents need a safe space to explore and express their thoughts and feelings without being judged, especially when they feel lost, angry or misunderstood. We can develop skills to cope with the dramatic changes that occur in social, cognitive-behavioral, and emotional areas of functioning. We explore issues common to adolescents such as peer pressure, family dynamics, body image issues, academic pressure, bullying, experimentation with substances, low self-esteem, impulsiveness, isolation and social anxiety. Our approach is casual, conversational, directive, and solution focused. We help our clients verbalize their thoughts and feelings, then we actually listen to them. We set goals for therapy together and work towards those goals using insight and practical solutions. Sometimes there aren’t solutions, but we can find ways that make it easier to have understanding, acceptance, and communication.
