Our approach is warm, compassionate, non-judgmental, and will compel you to work towards lasting change in your life.

Having multiple life stressors can impair your ability to manage your emotions, thoughts and behaviors, making you susceptible to anxiety. This can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed, excessive worry, obsessive thoughts or actions, separation anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks or irrational fears and beliefs. In counseling, we can determine what your life stressors are and how to reduce or eliminate them. You can learn techniques to combat the irrational thought process and expectations that are linked to anxiety. You will be able to work through life events that have created anxiety for you.
When you think of grief and loss you are typically referring to the loss of loved ones, yet we experience grief when children leave home, loss of career, divorce, end of a relationship, loss of a pet, loss of financial stability, miscarriage, loss of a job, retirement, etc. Coping with loss can be an overwhelming experience which includes many emotions. Avoiding feelings of sadness prolongs the grieving process, which can lead to issues with overall health and well being. Counseling can help you heal, by acknowledging the pain, finding new meaning and moving on in life.
