"Most of us have never been taught how to build great relationships, raise children, or to be content and find meaning; these issues tend to cause us a great deal of stress. Stress is a major cause of anxiety and behaviors that you want to change. However, you have the building blocks within you to put together great relationships, raise children, and have a meaningful flourishing life. Sometimes the building blocks you already have get jumbled and need to be adjusted. Errors in thinking lead us to feel bad and spiral downward or become anxious or depressed."

We hope that there is more to life, but days go by without improvement or change.

We all experience these demands, and each of us has a limit. When we reach our capacity, we often feel overwhelmed, angry, depressed, and even anxious. We loose joy, and even purpose; we concede to despair and are filled with worries. Even the strongest and most capable people among us need a little help sometimes to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Our private practice specializes in helping people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, problematic substance use, pornography and sex addiction, relationship enhancement, or stress management.
