About

All therapy starts with collaboration at it's core. Seeking therapy takes a great deal of courage and we commend you for considering therapy as a tool for self-exploration and growth. Many find that building a supportive and interactive relationship with their therapist contributes to the overall effectiveness of therapy. We offer a safe and non-judgmental environment, with a commitment to placing the highest priority on your well-being. Our services are offered to adults and teens, specializing in difficulties related to: stress, coping with life's changes, anxiety, trauma, identity, body image, self-esteem, and LGBTQ+.
Our counseling approach starts with compassion, providing a warm and intimate atmosphere. We use strength-based, insight-oriented, and collaborative techniques individualized to meet the unique needs of each client.
The client is always welcomed to a supportive environment; feeling accepted and understood, while also challenged and inspired to take on new perspectives and daily practices.

Ciara Ward's Groups

Empowerment Parenting Classes

The sole purpose of Empowerment Parenting is to teach parents the core concept of being their children's initial teacher, as well as caregiver. It is a 10-week, one hour session focusing on building confidence and skills within parents essential to guiding and providing for their children while also minimizing conflict. The ultimate goal is to empower parents in order to empower children, strengthening the ability to ultimately succeed in life.

More about this group

Anger Management

Anger management is typically mistaken for the ability to "not get mad." That's simply not the case. Anger management is recognizing the signs that you're becoming angry, figuring out what makes or made you angry (trigger points) and applying self control and dealing with situations in a conducive way. Anger management does not prevent you from feeling anger or encourage you to hold it in. Anger is a normal emotion when you deal with and express it properly - anger management teaches just that.
