Counseling Services

We welcome people of all races, ethnic groups, religions, genders, sexual orientations, and abilities.

Whether you are a trauma survivor, or coming in for support around other life challenges, we understand that the decision to enter therapy is an important one.  There are many factors to consider in creating a successful and supportive process.

We are committed to helping those who have the courage to seek therapy.

The first step toward starting counseling with us is to call our intake counselor.  We will speak with you about your counseling needs, discuss appointment times and fees with you, and try to make a good fit with one of our therapists.

The therapy process is not always easy.  It requires commitment from both the client and the therapist. 

Our therapists offer respect, presence, compassion and mutuality.  We will listen carefully and counseling will proceed at a collaborative pace.
