About

Sometimes life doesn't go the way we planned. At times we are faced with obstacles that can leave us feeling stuck and unhappy. This can lead to depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and many other emotions. You may even feel your life is unmanageable or out of control. However, you are not alone. Let us help you discover a way to a brighter future filled with happiness and hope. Our licensed therapists specialize in helping people afflicted with addictions, depression, anxiety, fears, anger, mood disorders, life changes, and trauma. To see all the bios and photos of our therapists visit us at https://serenesolutions.net
Our therapists provide a non-judgmental style of counseling in a warm and therapeutic environment. Our offices are designed to make you feel comfortable and to provide you with a safe place to open up about the things that you don't share with others.
One size does not fit all, thus our therapists are trained in a variety of counseling techniques including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Call us today or book an appointment online on our website: https://serenesolutions.net
