  • Move out of depression and/or anxiety and into your life
  • End the struggle with negative relationship patterns (being a people pleaser, finding yourself in toxic relationships, struggling with setting appropriate boundaries)
  • Find more effective ways to manage anger
  • Find success living with Adult Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD/ADD, or a Learning Disability

Counseling for Couples

If you feel like you aren’t getting what you want in your relationship, we can help you:

Counseling for Children and Teens

Growing up is hard work. We help children and teens who:
  • Feel anxious, or worried all the time.
  • Feel depressed, lonely, or isolated
  • Have a tough time controlling their emotions and the behaviors that result (emotional outbursts, anger, aggression).
  • Struggle socially, or tend to end up in friendships where they are being taken advantage of.
  • Struggle academically and feel overwhelmed and stuck in knowing how to get back on track.
  • Feel overwhelmed with life changes or transitions (divorce, blended family dynamics, a move, or loss of a family member or close friend).
  • Have ADHD/ADD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
We also offer support to parents who feel overwhelmed or stuck in figuring out the best steps to take to help their child or teen. When challenges are showing up in school we can also work with your child or teens school on your behalf.
