Professional counseling is a collaboration that fosters meaningful change through conversation in a confidential and supportive environment.

As your rapport develops, a highly trained and credentialed counselor can help you work through your concerns to live a healthy, happy and productive life.

Knowing that you would like help is the best place to start. From that humble beginning, we can journey from problems and symptoms to change and resolution.

All of our team believes in your deep value.

We are committed to integrity, responsibility and attentiveness.

Meeting your counselor

Although the emotions we experience during therapy can widely vary, you should seek a counselor whose approach resonates with you.

Our counselors are glad to receive your calls and emails to help you determine your options.

And our directors are glad to offer their recommendation.

Signs of progress

Emotions, as we explore our thoughts and behavior, may be many and diverse.

Intense emotions, if released, require our compassion and understanding in the process.

But a good indication of growth is when one begins to discover again the positive and the vital: a sense of relief, a sense of belonging, a sense of purpose and hope.

Growth, Health & Wellness

Successes in healing trauma & treating psychological and emotional difficulties happen every day.

Major studies also increasingly support the close connections between mental-emotional health and physical health.

Our overall holistic health and wellness can substantially benefit from successful counseling.
