Not sure what the next steps are?

Our counselors and couples therapists

can help you find the steps forward!

What to expect in counseling with us:

Our counselors and couples therapists provide practical guidance to help you with relationship stress and conflict, autism, anxiety, depression, conduct disorders, anger, and impulsivity. Our counseling is tailored to your exact situation. This starts from the very first session and continues throughout each appointment.

As a result, we meet you where you’re at in the process, and we help guide you through life’s roadblocks so you can live the life you want.

We don’t just listen to your concerns! We also provide you with honest feedback and strategies to use as you move forward on the journey to healing.

Most importantly, we stay focused on your goals for counseling. As a result, you can find immediate relief and make continued progress towards the life you want.

We use a variety of counseling approaches based on your specific needs:

  • CBT, ACT, Existential, Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing
  • Christian Counseling (as requested)
  • Couples Therapy / Gottman Method, an approach developed by Dr. John Gottman, a prominent couples therapist
  • Online Counseling (like Skype or Facetime, but over a secure platform)
  • And more, depending on what is most helpful to you

We offer a variety of Counseling, Couples Therapy, and Group Counseling Services to meet your needs:

Individual Therapy

Individual appointments allow for a close look at whatever area of your life you are looking to improve: work, home life, relationship, and life-long difficulties can be effectively addressed.

Appointments tend to be between 50-60 minutes. During this time, you help direct the discussion to what concerns you, regardless if it is something your partner recently did, a frustration from the past week, something from your past, or roadblocks in the life you want. We believe that everything is connected, and as patterns emerge in our sessions, we’ll work to address the root of what is keeping you stuck.

To schedule your first individual appointment, please contact us.

Couples Therapy

Sometimes our romantic relationships don't live up to "Happily Ever After".  Whether the relationship is ok but could be better, or is falling apart and there doesn't seem to be hope, we can help!

We use the Gottman method, which is a powerful approach to helping couples focus on the relationship, stop blaming each other, disagree productively and calmly, and become great friends again.

To schedule your first couples appointment, please contact us.

Men's Relationship Recovery Group

Relationships don't always go as planned, and going through a separation or divorce can be especially difficult. This is especially the case when we want to keep the relationship, but our partner is leaving. We offer the Men's Relationship Recovery Group so men going through a difficult separation or divorce can get practical tips, suggestions, and feedback from other men going through similar things in their life.

For more information about these groups, or to register, please go here.

Anger Management

Anger is a powerful emotion that, if left unchecked, can drive us to make decisions we later regret. We offer a court and employer accepted anger management program that provides understanding about anger, practical skills to manage anger in the moment, ways to interrupt the cycle, and support to implement new concepts and skills.

The program is eight sessions and begins with three individual appointments that identify the situation(s) leading to counseling, as well as education about triggers and coping skills. The remaining five consecutive group or individual sessions provide support as you apply the knowledge and skills into your daily life.

In our anger management program, you’ll cover topics such as:

  • Events and Cues
  • Anger Control Plans
  • The Cycle of Aggression
  • Assertiveness and Conflict Resolution Skills
  • Anger at Home and in Relationships

To sign up for this program, please contact us.
