Therapy & Counseling
You will find authentic, warm, and empathetic approaches to your struggles. A supportive, problem-solving and strengths based approach will help you develop a plan for change. Change may involve action-oriented steps, or, it may involve acceptance to work against resistance to change. We are here to help you realize overall greater health and well-being as a whole person. We can work with individuals ages 6 through adulthood. We can also help you through family, couples', and co-parenting therapy.  Click here to learn more about our approaches.

Evaluation Services
Sometimes you need a psychological or substance use evaluation for diagnostic clarification or to determine if there is progress in therapy. We can also help you develop a clear path with a career assessment. Other times, employers may require a psychological or substance use evaluation to determine readiness to return to work. Lastly, we can help with adoption readiness evaluations.
