Types of Counseling
A variety of concerns and stressors bring clients to us for individual counseling. Regardless of what leads you to consider individual counseling, each of our trained clinicians is equipped to help you identify your goals, gain needed insights, and take action in the areas you are ready to change to bring about the growth and healing you desire.
Marriage & Couples Counseling
All relationships go through seasons of difficulty, whether yours is doing well and just looking for a tune-up or feeling deeply painful and needing help right now, we have clinicians specifically trained in couples counseling who are ready to help you understand your relationship dynamics and take the steps needed to help you to reach your relationship goals.
All problems occur within a specific context and have multiple forces influencing their development and maintenance. Sometimes it is important to have the whole family present for and included in the counseling process to create lasting change. Our clinicians that work with families understand those dynamics and are trained to help generate change in your whole family system as everyone works together toward growth and healing.

It is always our goal to work ourselves out of a job by empowering you to do the work and learn the skills you need to graduate from counseling. We recognize that sometimes it takes a significant amount of time to address the root causes of current issues.
We want you to know that we are willing to work with you as long as it takes to meet your goals and help you achieve genuine holistic health.
