We offer specialized services for clients of all ages: Adults, Teens, and Children

Depression and Anxiety 

Many of our clients come to us suffering from depression, manic-depression (Bipolar Disorder), or severe anxiety that has been unrecognized or untreated for years.  Our therapists know how to get to the root of the problem and can work closely with family members and other health care providers to help get you or your loved one out of misery and pain and back on their feet.  Constant worry, fear or compulsions can also seriously disrupt one’s life.  Our therapists can train you to deal with panic.  Once treatment is experienced, there is often an immediate decrease in some of the most uncomfortable symptoms.

Psychological and Physical Trauma 

Many of our clinicians offer expertise in trauma recovery, working with survivors of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, neglect, and other traumatic experiences such as life-threatening illnesses.  With Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), transformation is not only possible but imperative in order for you to live the most fulfilling life.  Several of our counselors offer specialized services in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is considered by some to be state-of-the-art treatment in trauma recovery.
