About

You're a successful person, yet you feel like there is something missing. You're in a holding pattern of conflict and negativity with yourself and others. What you really want is the sense of calmness that comes with confidence. Instead, you're constantly frustrated and exhausted. You are ready for a transformation! Together, we can work to break negative cycles, find the skills to express, and take control back of your life! Or, maybe you're here for your child or teen? You see them struggling. They can't find the words to express to you their pain, but you see it in their behaviors. Both of you feel stuck. Gain direction with us!
Children/adolescents, adults, families, & couples are all welcome! Through guided exploration, you will find the source of your issues. We will process the deeper emotions and unhelpful thought processes that are keeping you stuck. Learn how to make your awareness work for you. You will implement new behavior patterns that get you to where you want to be!
Our therapists have an eclectic style where we use tools and techniques from a variety of different models (CBT, Trauma-Focused, EFT, Gottman, IFS, DBT, ect). No one is the same and neither should your treatment. We will draw connections between unhealthy thoughts and behaviors in order to create healthier emotional stability. No waiting list, get in today!
