We specialize in treating depression, anxiety, parenting challenges, grief, trauma, adjustment disorders, relationship problems, stress management, healthy aging, and LGBT support.  Our approach is strengths-based and tailored to each unique individual we serve.  Our therapy sessions are safe, private, and confidential.  We will always meet you where you are.
