Our Services

Individual Counseling

You never imagined you’d be at this place in life. You’ve tried to make yourself feel better, but things just aren’t changing. You’re weary of struggling, but you’re not sure what to do or where to turn for help. What you do know is that you’re tired of hurting. Maybe you’re having problems in a relationship, or with your spouse, or in your work life. Like most people who visit our website, there is either something you don’t want (like loneliness, anxiety, depression, or conflicts) or there is something you do want (such as healthy relationships, peace of mind, or a new career).


Marriage Counseling

You’re worried that you’ll never be happy again, and you’re tired of feeling like roommates. You feel stuck, and no matter what you’ve tried, nothing seems to help. It seems like you’ve had the same fight a hundred times, and you’re questioning, “How could something that seemed so good and right have turned out so negatively” or “how could we be so in love, and now feel a million miles apart?” And, if the truth be told, you’re beginning to fear that your marriage won’t survive much longer. If you have had some or most of these concerns about your marriage, you’re not alone.


Family Counseling

You’ve tried everything you know to help, but your child continues to struggle. You’ve noticed your daughter seems to be more irritable or withdrawn lately. Or maybe your son is struggling in school or is having a tough time socially. You’ve also noticed there are behavioral problems as well. You’ve found yourself wondering, “Where did that sweet and innocent little child disappear to?” You’re hoping it’s just a phase, but you worry that something deeper could be going on. You’ve thought about talking to your doctor or a professional, but you don’t want to upset him.
