Therapy for Children/Teens

Oftentimes children and teens are "doing the best they can with what they've got," meaning their unwanted behaviors (i.e. misbehaving, yelling, cutting, lying) are because they have no other way of managing big feelings. Supporting children and teens through navigating life's challenging moments takes a creative and collaborative approach. Topics that we support kids and teens through include:

  • EMDR & Trauma Therapy
  • Managing emotions
  • Self-esteem
  • Anxiety
  • Depression & self-harm
  • Identity exploration

With nurturance and time, children and teens can emerge more self-aware, self-confident, and more equipped to tackle the world.

Family Therapy

Family therapy is a collaborative approach that aims to address conflicts, enhance communication, and help families recognize and build upon their existing strengths. By providing a safe and neutral space, we work with family members to explore their role & dynamics, strengthen relationships, and develop effective problem-solving skills. This process fosters a sense of connection and empowerment, enabling families to discover what is already working well within their system while promoting overall family well-being.

Therapy for Adults

Sometimes we are our own worst critics. Maybe its the self-defeating thoughts, negative emotions, or unwanted behaviors that we want to shift, but just can't seem to shake. We offer compassionate therapeutic support to help guide adult clients, at whatever place in their life cycle, through whatever challenges they are facing. Some common topics we support:

  • Anxiety & panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Grief & loss 
  • Life transitions (college, new job, changing relationships, parenting)
  • Finding or changing careers
