Services We Offer

Home: Services

Individual Therapy

In our counseling sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve thinking and behavior. We will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles and challenges. Get in touch to book an appointment.

Family Therapy

Families often encounter difficult situations. Sometimes families are unable to successfully resolve these situations, in that case it might be time to seek help from a licensed professional. Family counseling sessions help clients improve conflict resolution, increase communication skills and promote healthier interactions between family members.

Couples Therapy

We provide counseling services for couples who are struggling with relationship issues. In couples sessions, we can work on changing destructive patterns and increasing communication skills. Couples sessions will require the active participation of both partners.

Other services

In some circumstances, (disabled, elderly), in-home counseling is available. Also for some families, in-home therapy is more beneficial.

We have a Registered Art Therapist on staff, as well as two Registered Play Therapists.
