Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or lonely. You know this is not the person you are meant to be, and want more from your life. These symptoms may show up in all aspects of your life from your relationships to work performance, and especially those moments in between when thoughts are racing and you find it hard to regulate your emotions on your own.
The great news is, working with a trained mental health professional can help you learn to manage those emotions, and give you a new lease on life.
Our sessions focus on reducing isolation and anxiety, improving well-being, and helping you fulfill your potential. Our individual therapy sessions can also help you overcome trauma, life’s setbacks, and pain you may be experiencing.
Advanced couples counseling
There are few things as nourishing as loving relationship and few things as painful as a relationship wrought with turmoil and conflict. The truth is, satisfying relationships require effective communication, respect, and consideration for both partners’ needs.
Although great relationships may seem magical, the skills required to achieve them are not – they’re learned. A couples counselor can be an asset in acquiring these skills, and understanding the patterns that affect your relationship, in order to liberate you both from the power struggles and blame. The support of a couples counselor can profoundly challenge you to recognize these patterns on your own, and enter into new patterns of mindfulness, consideration, and better communication with each other.
While many couples seek counseling during times of distress and conflict, therapy can be useful at all stages of a relationship. Whether beginning a partnership, considering new commitments like marriage or having children, struggling with intimacy, or wanting to deepen an already intimate and fulfilling relationship, we’ll work with you to establish common goals and identify your individual and relationship values.
Things you can expect from your treatment:

If your family is experiencing the same, ongoing struggles, including arguments, conflicts, lack of cooperation, frequent misbehavior or dishonesty, irritability among family members, or activity overload leading to severe stress and anxiety, it’s time to seek a new approach with a trained, professional counselor.
Family counseling can help bring you much-needed relief. We will work together to solve problems, avoid blame, and minimize stress, which can increase your family’s flexibility, while establishing consistent rules and routines that promote respect and accountability from all family members.
Child & adolescent counseling
Adolescents today face many issues and challenges that can lead to feeling overwhelmed and confused. These years can be a time of great vulnerability for a teen which may lead to poor choices and problematic behavior. The adolescent years are riddled with transitional issues – physical and emotional changes along with the desire to establish independence from their parents, which can result in feelings of confusion and discouragement. Teens often don’t have the needed coping skills to deal with this significant distress which may lead to your teen engaging in risky behaviors or becoming depressed and/or anxious.
Sometimes, adolescents may just need someone outside of their family to discuss the stressors they are dealing with and help them relieve the pressure they feel. For others, who are dealing with more severe issues such as depression, anxiety, violent behaviors, sexual acting out, school/home behavioral problems, or substance abuse, will need more significant intervention.
The therapeutic exploration of your life is only possible with someone who values the diversity and breadth of human identities. That includes sexuality and gender expression, which is fluid in every one of us. We offer an affirming environment that does not judge you for who you are, who you love, how you look, or the words you use for your identity. This is a place to be authentic and real.
Together, we can work through unique experiences connected to your relationships, anxiety and worry, self-perception, community, and connection. Challenges may include dating and relationships, friendships, loss of family, exploring gender identity, intimacy challenges, dealing with prejudice, self esteem and body image, and trauma. Treatment may include:
- Exploring gender at any stage of identity development
- Support for coming out to friends and family
- Helping partners and family members through the transition
- Understand complex and sensitive nature of intersection between sexuality and gender
- Culturally informed around and sensitive to issues of race, ethnicity, and religion

If you’ve been trying to conceive, but unable, you know that it can be quite frustrating. However, this is not uncommon. The longer it continues, the more sad, angry, and confused you may feel. During sessions, you will meet with a therapist to discuss these emotions. Our counselors will also assist couples with exploring feelings of guilt, shame, or inadequacy that may accompany infertility, especially when one partner suffers from a condition that leads to trouble conceiving.
Fertility counseling focuses on your efforts to conceive and the effects that these efforts have on your life, your relationship, and your future. Often, fertility clinics will require couples to undergo fertility counseling before moving forward with an egg or sperm donation and similar procedures.
New parents counseling
Becoming a first-time parent is a major life change that can create strong emotions and require major lifestyle adjustments. Many new parents need support, and our counselors can provide you with the skills and resources you need to help you embrace and enjoy the transition into parenthood, including:
- Helping connect new parents to local resources
- Providing support to new parents adjusting to their new roles
- Self-care and learning about setting healthy boundaries
- Includes relationship counseling for adapting to new identities and routines
Eating disorder recovery
Would you say that food dominates your life? Or do you often feel guilt or shame around food? Perhaps you worry you have lost control over how much you eat, whether it be too much or too little? If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if your concerns are linked to your eating habits or other body image issues, eating disorder recovery counseling may be for you.
We provide treatment to individuals of all ages, body types, and sizes with eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder, ARFID, and other specified eating disorders not otherwise mentioned.
Addiction early intervention & recovery
Discovering an addiction early, and intervening through counseling can mean the difference between life and death. The first step is realizing that you’re not alone. Intervention at the first signs of drug use is important for many other reasons, as well.
Research shows that transition from casual use to regular use of alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs often occurs within three years, while the prognosis for recovery improves significantly the earlier a person stops using. Once someone reaches one year of sobriety, his or her changes of sustaining recovery improve greatly.
If you’re struggling with substance abuse of any kind – why not today? Reach out and make an appointment.
LGBT+ family support
No journey is ever completed by an individual alone. If a family member has recently come out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, and you’re feeling scared or uncertain, you’ve come to the right place. It may be tempting to show concern for a child, or want to intervene, but often, the best first step one can take to care for a family member who has come out, is to seek affirming help and support from a trained counselor who can help you navigate your new circumstances.
While you may have unconditional love and acceptance for your family member, you may also have worries for them, knowing that we live in a world that does not always validate the worth and existence of LGBT individuals. We want you to know that there is hope for your loved one and your relationship with them. Seeking counseling can be a great way to grow in your understanding of their circumstances which may literally save their life and set them up to flourish and grow into who they were born to be.
Documentation and referrals for gender-affirming medical interventions (including surgery)
For individuals seeking medical intervention (including surgery) related to gender dysphoria, needing letters of support, we have expertise in providing these types of services. During your first appointment, let your counselor know what kind of gender related support you’re looking for, and they’ll connect you with the proper resources and services.
Our support process is designed to empower you to make the decisions that are best for your wellbeing and ensure a smooth referral for the gender-affirming care that is right for you. You’ll meet one-on-one, either in person or through tele-therapy, who will support you in your unique gender transition needs.
Together, you’ll work to meet readiness and eligibility requirements for your particular treatment or procedure. We honor all gender-expansive identities and will work to support your goals for medical transition.
