  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress

  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Searching for one’s purpose & values
  • Teen development
  • Parenting
  • Addiction
  • Life Transition

space to grow

We believe that goals and growth are possible. It’s our desire to help our clients meet their defined objectives. When a person attends counseling, it gives them the space to grow in the areas they desire, with a person alongside their process offering support and reflection in the best interest of their success.

Someone to talk to

Something happens when an individual has an objective voice with which to talk through concerns. Giving an individual a voice to life events, feelings, or thoughts is one of the healing parts of the therapeutic process. We look forward to listening to you.

Our Model

Restoration Therapy is an effective model which allows an individual or couple to identify their core feelings, connect where they most likely learned the false messages connected to these feelings, and then empower the individual or couple to regulate their own emotions with the truth about who they are to be. The emotional regulation process not only changes one’s emotions, but also the behaviors the emotion produces. This model is so ­­universal; it can be used with any issue and demographic.
