Counseling for All Ages
Children and Growing Pains
Child therapy is psychotherapy focused on the psychological needs of children. Like adults, there are times when children need the expertise of a psychotherapist and children's therapy was developed to fill this need. A therapist trained in psychotherapy for children usually treats children from age 3 to age 11.
Teenagers & Life Transitions
Adolescence, ages 12-21, is an exciting time to be a human! We experience a spectacular rate of growth not only physically, but also emotionally, and cognitively. The world begins to open up and become larger than it previously had been for us. This brings with it a host of ideas and questions as well as an incredible energy with which to pursue them!
Adult Individual Counseling
Individual therapy can help you build healthier relationships in all areas or your life - career, academia, marriage, friendships, athletics, and hobbies.
Individual therapy can also help you overcome difficulties with trauma, mood, and relationship issues. We strive to support and promote constructive change in your emotional health and relationships. Together, we look closely at what is causing feelings of dissatisfaction, lack of motivation, fear and pain.
Adult Life-Event Counseling
Relationships are one of the most important aspects of our lives. We all want to feel understood by others and connected to our family and friends. What we learn about relationships, our feelings, our perceptions of others, and how we communicate is often learned from an early age and then reinforced through our life experiences.
Great relationships have clear communication, which leads to understanding and getting our needs met, to good boundaries with one another, and to an experience of empathy. People often come to therapy because one or more of their relationships are not satisfying or happy.
Together we will delve into topics to be able to discover the answers and determine methods of how to approach them in your marriage.
Pre- and Postpartum Counseling
While having a new baby in the house can be a source of immense joy, it can also bring about intense feelings of stress, depression, anxiety, trouble asking for the support you so desperately need, and problems interacting with your spouse and other children in
Enhancing Positive Parenting Skills
Research shows the importance of considering emotions as part of the parenting process. An ideal time for bonding with and offering guidance to your child is when he/she is emotional. Emotionally charged moments can be opportunities for trust building, intimacy and teaching.
The family is often our first and most lasting connection to the world. Family relationships are often the most influential in development and wellbeing. Although the people in the family may remain the same, the way each relates to one another does not. The relationships change as different members of the family grow and change. However, not all members of the family are always ready for the changes at the same time.
