About Us


Our experience enables us to offer counseling to teens, adults, couples and families.  We recognize that as we transition into different stages of life and/or experience certain events that we may benefit from a safe neutral space to process our thoughts and feelings.


Our focus is to help you develop clarity about your experience.  It is important to understand how our thoughts and feelings effect our behavior.  We will work with you to develop skills to navigate everyday life.  The goal is to heal, energize, and improve your overall sense of well-being.
