ABOUT US

Who We Serve

Counseling is provided not only for those with mental health issues, but also for professional support with healthy decision-making. These decisions are often filled with importance due to the impact they may have on your future.  With that in mind, we provide supportive consultative sessions that are individual, may be in a small group or may be with family or caregivers.

School-Based Therapy – working with students who would benefit from behavioral and mental health support while at school.  School-Based therapy  is authorized by parents and the school.  Services will also be provided at the office.

Approaching major life decisions – What are your next steps? Graduating or not graduating; finding a job; going into the Armed Forces; I have a baby; these are all things that impact a young person’s life. Come to counseling and learn to make good decisions.

Opportunity – It will take more than talent.  If your goal is to play at the next level, you’ve got to accept the academic challenge and learn to operate within the process.  We can help–that scholarship has your name on it…Full Ride!

When It’s Time, You’ll Know – and it’s not too late.  The seasoned worker offers value and an impressive array of skills.  Yes, there will be obstacles, but any major career change at any age would.  Let’s talk about pursuing that career change and focus on the capabilities.

LGBTQQIA+ – the door is open and you, they, them, their, she, he, her, him, hir, ze, zir, are not alone.  Life can be overwhelming and difficult, especially when you are afraid to be who you are.  We can begin the long journey together.

Local Advocates – we want to work within the community with agencies that provide services to children and families and others.

Depression In Adolescents and Adults

Depression is a condition we may all experience at the low points in our lives or brought about by an unexpected major life event or loss. The stress and confusion these can create, may become overwhelming and mentally draining. It is important to recognize and attend to these feelings, especially when they last more than two weeks and you begin to exhibit symptoms.

Grief and Bereavement Ages 5-125

Grief, Bereavement and Mourning are ways we feel loss, experience death, and celebrate loved ones through rituals. These feelings, experiences and memorializing cut across spirituality and cultures. We are all human, and death is a human experience. Self-care is how we muddle through on one side and honor on the other.

Adoption, Fostering and Aging Out

If you are an adoptive parent, an adoptee, a foster, or approaching aging out, that can be scary. Sometimes when you lose your supports, you can feel abandoned, alone, disconnected--If that is where you are, don't give up hope. Seeking professional help is a step forward. It takes skill, guidance and experience to be a "grown-up" and do "adulting", you are not supposed to know it all. If you reach out, we will reach back. Consider coming to counseling.

Parent-Child Therapeutic Support

Some children struggle with low self-esteem, academic failure, and retention. Therapeutic support via family therapy may be a valuable resource. Children become more academically engaged in learning when they receive wrap-around support. Our most precious gifts are well worth the time and effort.
