Many seek the help of a therapist when they struggle, when they are not sure what to do next, or when they don’t know where else to go.
You may be facing a challenge that turned your world upside down.
You may feel detached or lost and are searching for meaning and purpose.
The coping tools you’ve used in the past seem to be ineffective right now, and you feel like you’re paddling upstream.
These challenges may indicate it’s time for a change, whether it is a job stressor, a relationship stressor, or an internal stressor. When our coping mechanisms become ineffective to manage these circumstances, we become overwhelmed.

We offer you a safe, confidential space for all who seek therapy, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. We are an LGBTQ+ affirming practice.
Mental Health Services:
Therapy for Anxiety & Stress
Anxiety is used to describe feelings of worry, fear, and unease. It prompts us to be alert to threats and motivates us to react. However, it can impact your mental well-being when you feel anxious every day. Sometimes it can be extremely difficult to identify what is triggering anxiety on your own.
Therapy for Addiction
Addiction is more than a physical dependence. It also affects the person emotionally, financially, and spiritually. When someone’s living with addiction, it takes a toll on everyone around them.
Therapy for Chronic Illness & Pain
Forging a new life with chronic illness can be challenging. It’s an isolating and frustrating experience. Coping with a diagnosis can impact your mind just as much as your body.
Therapy for Transitions through life
Struggles or major life changes may alter our perspective on life and our perception of reality. This can profoundly affect our mental, emotional, and social well-being.
Therapy for Trauma
Past trauma and negative experiences can have a lasting impact on physical and mental health. For many of us, gaining awareness of the ways our past impacts our physical, mental, emotional, and social wellbeing is the first step to healing.
Therapy for Military & Veterans
Our practice holds a special place in our heart for service members, military spouses and dependents. A few of our counselors are military spouses, and deeply understand the challenges and joys of living a military lifestyle.

Postpartum Rage: What It Is and What You Can Do About It

You may be moving to a new city, starting graduate school or changing jobs, or dealing with other major events that make it hard to meet people and maintain existing relationships with friends and family members. In our fast-paced lives where many of us lead busier lives than ever before, sometimes it can be hard to make time for others outside of work or family obligations. However, it's so important that we do find the time to connect with other adults and expand our social circles. Fortunately, making new friends as an adult doesn’t have to be stressful or difficult, with these five tips that will help you gain meaningful friendships and keep them long-term. 1.

How To Boost Your Flexible Thinking Skills
Neuroscientists, psychologists, therapists and educators sometimes call it cognitive shifting, but you may know it better as flexible thinking. The idea of cognitive shifting is simple: your brain is able to move quickly from one thought or subject to another. This allows for faster problem-solving, better communication and improved concentration skills. It also helps us adjust to changes in our environment by adapting quickly and efficiently. Cognitive shifting plays an important role in learning. By changing the focus from one subject or activity to another, learners are able to keep their attention on task and engage in deeper thinking about their subject matter. Furthermore, flexible thinking makes it easier for learners to retain information over time since they’re less likely to get stuck on any single topic or approach. Those who are especially adept at cognitive shifting may find that they're more successful in managing stressful situations and working under tight deadlines because they can easily switch between tasks when necessary. In fact, being able to switch gears quickly is often key for achieving desired results in all areas of life - be it personal or professional endeavors. Flexible thinking also plays a major role in your happiness…
