Unique, engaging, and exceptional counseling services
Your life and relationships deserve nothing less
Throughout life, those closest to us can bring us joy and happiness, and also sadness and distress.
It may be tough now, but it doesn't have to be that way.
The result--a new perspective and deeper understanding of the other person.
Individual counseling is offered to adults (18 and over) who are experiencing difficulties in their physical, social, personal, and spiritual dimensions of life. You may be experiencing the pain and hurt that arise from sadness, shame, anxiety, fear, and loss. You may struggle to understand the tougher questions life asks of you. For too long, you've tried figuring things out on your own, attempted to avoid the pain, or bent over backwards trying to rid yourself of those uncomfortable feelings and thoughts.
You don't have to face those struggles alone any longer. Take that first step today toward a new future.
Relationship (or couples) counseling is for adults (18 and over) who are dating, engaged, married, or in commitment relationships. It's also for those who--for various reasons--seek to work on issues alone--without a partner present.
