When a relationship is starting to fall apart, it might be time to seek couples counseling or marriage therapy! Our therapists can help you identify patterns that keep your relationship stuck and work towards better communication that will help you find a deeper connection with one another.
We believe that relationships take work. However, with the right guidance to strengthen your bond and helpful tools, your relationship will last for years to come.

Child & Teen Therapy
Our therapists and counselors have a lot of experience working with children, adolescents, and teens.

Family therapy is one of our specialties, and we have helped countless families overcome a variety of problems. We are masters at helping people see what might be driving conflict in the home.
If you are considering family therapy, it can be helpful to understand where your family members are coming from. Communication within a family or between spouses can be very difficult, and we can help you work through things in a way that respects everyone’s perspective.
We also offer family therapy for parents of individuals who are struggling with addiction or mental health problems. You don’t have to be perfect to have a healthy relationship with your child — sometimes just being there is enough!
Sex can be a great way to express passion and love for your partner, but it can also have a wide variety of other meanings. If you have been avoiding sex or aren’t feeling good about the sexual relationship that you have with your spouse, we understand how difficult this can be!
Our sex therapists work with clients who are struggling with intimacy or a decrease of sexual desire, which can be caused by a number of different things. Things like trust, family origin issues, or past trauma can cause difficulty when it comes to intimacy in relationships.

Counseling for individuals who are questioning their gender can be extremely beneficial. It can be a great way to explore both the internal and external aspects of gender, have someone who is experienced help you navigate your thoughts and feelings, and discuss practical issues such as how to come out at work or school.
Anger Management Therapy
Do you find yourself struggling to control your anger? Do you feel that others would describe you as a hot-head or having a temper—or that maybe life just seems too overwhelming and sometimes this rage overflows in damaging ways? Anger is a natural emotion, but when left unchecked it can have very negative consequences on families, friends, and loved ones.
We have experience helping those who struggle with anger issues including road rage, domestic violence, and physically hitting out at others as well as those who struggle with displace anger such as passive-aggressive behaviors or self-destructive habits like drinking too much alcohol.
Anxiety is a normal part of life, but certain types of anxiety can interfere with daily activities and prevent you from living the life you want. If your anxiety seems to be getting out of control, our professionals are here to help!
Some common signs of too much worry include panic attacks, feeling nervous most days, depression/sadness, sleep problems, and irritability.
Being diagnosed with depression can be very difficult, but there is much hope! You can find relief from your symptoms when you work with our professionals to uncover the source of your feelings and begin developing coping skills.
Therapy for depressive disorders varies quite a bit depending on the type(s) of depression you are struggling with. It could include learning how to improve relationships with family members, work on self-esteem, discuss grief or anger issues, or even just help you learn how to cope with low periods.
We have experience working with people who are struggling with all types of depression including major depressive disorder, bipolar depression, dysthymia (chronic low mood), Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and more.
A therapist can provide a safe place to begin and end your sessions as you need them, and there is no obligation to continue longer than you feel like it’s helpful.
