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 management, 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
  • Play Therapy
  • 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 Individual, Couples, and Group Counseling Services to meet your needs:

Child Counseling

Being a parent is hard. Probably the most difficult thing on the planet. And there is no manual. Sometimes, we hit our limits for what we can do for our child. We love our kids and want what is best for them. Sometimes outside help is needed. Child counseling can directly help children get to the root of their anxiety, depression, or other behavioral challenges while providing support for parents.

Individual Counseling

Life throws unexpected things at us. Often, we can manage on our own. Other times we need help from family or friends. Sometimes, we need more.

Individual counseling provides the 1-to-1 support and accountability to deal with life's struggles.  To learn more, please visit our Individual counseling page.

Family Counseling

Family can be absolutely wonderful. Family can also be very frustrating and stressful. Sometimes both. At the same time. The question is, how do you navigate the stresses of your family? Learn more how family counseling can help you!

Couples Therapy

We know the stories of Cinderella, knights in shining armor, and rescuing the princess. We enjoy these stories because they are, frankly, a change from reality. Relationships are much more difficult in real-life. This let-down is even bigger when conflict shows up. Arguments, disagreements, laziness, and cheating all make relationships seem, well, impossible. However, couples therapy can show the way forward!  To learn more about how couples therapy can help, visit the couples therapy page.

Anger Management Program

Jack had a long day at work. His boss was on his case all day. No one he had to call was helpful. It was a train wreck.

When he got home, he realized he never took out the trash. As he started to reach for a new garbage bag, Jill – his wife – started to ask him about the trash.
That was about all Jack could take. He was angry. At his boss. His customers. Jill. Even himself. He started to yell. Jack didn’t really want to, but he was at his wits end. He didn’t know what else to do to get rid of the building anger. He needed help.  He needed to learn how to manage his anger.  See our anger management page to see how we can help you!

Relationship Men's Group

“Jack” met “Jill”. Everything was great! Jack would spend his day at work, come home, and spend the whole evening with Jill. He loved her and enjoyed this time with Jill. Jack spent so much time with Jill that he spent almost no time with his friends. In fact, he started to lose contact with his friends.

Over time, he grew distant from Jill. One day, Jack and Jill were arguing – again. Jill told Jack to move out. And was serious. Jack realized that his relationship was failing and he lost his friends. He didn’t know what to do, or how to win Jill back.

You don't have to be stuck like Jack.  To learn how to move forward with the relationship, check out our relationship men's group.
