About

Let's talk! Albert Einstein once said, "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." The first step in conquering ANY troubling issue must begin with seeking help and resources beyond your current supply. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists are wholly committed to the personal triumph of each of our patients over their presenting problem, and our outcomes reflect that investment! You've taken care of everyone else. Now, this is the time for you. Let's broaden your network of support in order to level up, to view and interact with your situation in new ways, with expanded support and energy.
We believe psychotherapy should be approachable, accessible, and results-driven. LIFT seeks to empower individuals, couples, and families to define and claim the lives they were meant to live. This means starting off by getting clear about hopes and dreams. We take a collaborative and holistic (mind/body/spirit) approach, meeting you where you are at.
The mind- and the thoughts contained- determine your destiny. Using cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, EMDR, and the latest evidence-driven, proven strategies, we work to advocate and coach clients to create a vision of how they would like to feel, and together, draw a practical map of how to get there, with accountability!
