    Child Counseling

    Our youngest clients find a voice and a path to healing through play therapy, a specialized approach that allows children to express their emotions and confront challenges in a language they understand best—play. This developmentally appropriate modality fosters emotional growth, resilience, and coping skills, providing children with the tools they need to thrive.

    Teen Counseling

    Adolescence is a time of significant change and growth. Our therapists blend talk therapy with expressive arts and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to create a supportive, non-judgmental space where teens can explore their identity, build self-confidence, and develop effective coping strategies. We’re here to help teens navigate the complexities of their developmental journey with confidence.

    Adult Counseling

    For adults facing life adjustments, trauma, depression, or anxiety, we offer a variety of evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and particularly Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). These therapies provide a pathway to healing and emotional well-being, helping adults reprocess traumatic memories and manage life’s challenges more effectively.
