Short-Term Problem Focused Therapy

Don’t want to spend months, even years, in therapy? Then short-term problem focused therapy may be the right approach for you. We’ll spend 6-12 weeks empowering you with the tools and skills you need to work through tough times.


Long-Term Therapy

Some situations are more complex and may require more time to resolve. Our counselors are trained to work with individuals in longer-term insight-oriented therapy.


Couples Counseling

Couples counseling helps couples with issues impacting the health and stability of their relationship. They may need to adjust communication patterns, resolve disagreements, work through a crisis, deal with the death or illness of a family member, or cope with other life issues impacting the relationship.


Family Counseling

There are many issues that impact the whole family unit, such as divorce, death or illness of a family member, mental or physical illnesses that affect the behavior or habits of family members, or loss of a job. Beyond dealing with specific issues that impact the health of a family, the object of family counseling is to resolve conflict, promote better relationships and improve communication.


Group Counseling

Professionally-led groups offer a forum for individuals struggling with similar issues to gather and engage in discussion, learn and build support.
