Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States. Symptoms can be mildly disruptive or feel completely overwhelming. Although anxiety is typically described as “excessive worry”, we know that it can present in many ways and affect all areas of life.

Depression is a common mental health disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest or pleasure in activities.


We have many treatment approaches to help you move through depression into a stable, calm and even happy life.

A traumatic event is a distressing experience that has a long-term and lasting effect on an individual’s physical and emotional well-being. Trauma symptoms can present in many different ways and affect any or all aspects of a person’s life. 

At the end of the day, it is our relationships that matter most. We are born to be connected and we yearn to be seen, known, understood and loved, flaws and all, particularly by our most intimate partner in life. We are passionate about helping you resolve conflicts, develop personal and relational accountability, and achieve that deep connection with one another so you can live a truly fulfilled life.

Couples Counseling

Coping with grief


We help people who are dealing with profound pain from losing a loved one and who need support along their grief journey. We support people in normalizing their experience so that they know they are not alone and can move through the challenges that grief brings. 

We help people who are struggling with illness or who are taking care of loved ones who have a chronic or terminal illness. When life has handed you the difficulty of dealing with hospitals, doctors and insurance companies, it is helpful to have someone to share the burden and journey with.

Dealing with motherhood stress


While there’s no greater joy than motherhood, there is also no job more difficult. And it’s ok to admit that. We help stressed-out moms realize they don’t have to do it all and they have an ally in their struggles.

It's harder than ever to be a teenager or the parent of a teen. Life, and all of its obligations, choices and distractions are wearing on our kids. And affecting the parent/child relationship. Kids need help. Parents need help. There's no need to do it alone.
