"Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness..more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. However, through therapy our associates have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a family systems based approach using behavior methods. "

"We all want to be happy in our lives. But how can we "be happy" when life is full of challenges and painful feelings? My approach to therapy acknowledges that while we cannot always control our painful thoughts, feelings, and situations, we can nevertheless live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Whether you're dealing with everyday stressors, experiencing a major life transition, coping with a mental health condition, or healing from a traumatic event, therapy can help you discover new ways of thinking and behaving so you can live your life with intention."
