We work with a variety of clients and issues, using a person-centered and solution-focused approach. We believe the client determines the focus of therapy, and although we are trained counselors, we respect our clients' knowledge of themselves and their needs. We are open to using alternative methods of treatment when needed. We strive to provide a safe environment in which we can work together to solve problems and enrich clients' lives.

Our clients include adults, adolescents, and children, many of whom face issues of mental illness, life adjustment, gender variance or sexual orientation. We see couples, individuals and groups, and offer weekday, weekend and evening hours. We accept most insurance.

We have worked with many transgender clients and are familiar with local and regional resources, and can make referrals for hormone therapy and surgery. We facilitate a group for transgender clients in various stages of transition. The group is a safe and accepting place for clients to interact and share experiences and ideas.
