About

This a group practice that employs clinicans of various ethnicities and backgrounds. People come to therapy due to feeling excessive stress at work, at home, or in their relationships. They find the pressures of everyday life have exceeded their abilities, overwhelmed their senses, and left them with an inability to cope. They are often having problems with school, completing tasks, getting along with others at work, and finding activities enjoyable. We believe in the resiliency of the human spirit, and that therapy is a process of exploring and getting to know oneself.
Our therapists can help you make the changes needed to feel better in your everyday life. We all have experience working with complex family systems, provide guidance when needed to navigate problems, and hold a grounded space for you to process difficulties. We utilize a supportive, mindful, and holistic approach to individual and family therapy.
Counseling provides professional and relatable therapy, as well as mindful mental health classes to help individuals and families who are navigating life’s challenges to feel more balanced, content, and joyful with everyday life. We are here to help you turn down the noise and find your still point in whatever challenges life may bring you.
