About

A genuine, trusting relationship is the essential basis for psychological healing and growth. Within that framework, we incorporate the tools and strategies for change that seem most suited to each individual's preferences, worldview and primary concerns. We believe in partnering with individuals by combining our training in evidence-based interventions with the strengths and resources they possess to best facilitate change. We believe in addressing all areas of a person's life: emotional, physical, social, and spiritual.
In addition to conventional talk therapy for children, adolescents and adults, we offer ecotherapy (nature-based therapy outdoors), play therapy and sandtray therapy. We also offer EMDR and IFS for trauma, mindfulness interventions, and yoga. We offer groups, classes, and retreats with a focus on mindfulness meditation.
We invite you to visit our website and facebook page to get to know us better and learn about the most up-to-date offerings. We are growing and have four therapists to offer services at the center in addition to a practicum student therapist who can serve clients at no charge. We look forward to supporting you.
