anxiety

Anxiety

Are worries, fears, or panic attacks interfering with your daily life? When anxious, we spend much of our time and energy avoiding situations that produce anxiety. But CBT can help you identify and manage the thoughts contributing to your anxiety.

OCD

OCD Counseling

If you struggle with OCD, traditional talk therapy is not enough. Using evidence-based methods such as CBT and Exposure Response Prevention, our therapists are committed to providing you with the tools to reduce the frequency and intensity of OCD symptoms.

depression

Depression

When feeling discouraged, hopeless, or irritable, it helps to talk through emotions. You don’t have to struggle with depression or low self-esteem alone. With counseling, you can boost your mood and regain motivation.

stress

Stress

Stress doesn’t have to take the enjoyment out of your life. We know that stress can be overwhelming but with the right tools, you can improve your peace of mind. Our therapists are here to help you reduce stress levels, cope healthily, and enhance your sense of well-being.

teens children

Kids & Teens

Children and teens are often unable to express what is bothering them. That’s why our well-trained therapists are here to provide a safe environment for your child to express their feelings, process thoughts and emotions, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

couples therapy

Couples

Couples counseling is a great way to start rebuilding the relationship between you and your partner. It allows for a safe environment to share your feelings, address problems, strengthen your bond, and work toward open communication.

family counseling

Families

Through family therapy sessions, we can help family members deepen connections, resolve conflicts, and improve communication. Our family therapists work collaboratively with each family member to build a better functioning home environment.

Video therapy is available if you find it challenging to make in-person appointments. All you need for your appointment is a private area and access to a device with a video camera. In just a couple of clicks, you will be connected to a therapist.
