We utilize a variety of traditional services (individual, couples, family and/or group counseling) to achieve your desired goals. Your journey to wellness begins with a diagnostic evaluation, and counseling, often in combination with holistic interventions.

Many of our clients come to us to reduce or eliminate their use of medications. However, depending on your diagnostic assessment, your therapist, on rare occasions, may refer you for an evaluation by a trusted, holistic psychiatrist. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in treatment and support for specific mental health issue that are not responding to traditional and/or holistic psychotherapy.

The terms, counseling and psychotherapy, are often used interchangeably and are known to some as “talk therapy.” Psychotherapy is a general term referring to a therapeutic interaction provided by a trained professional to an individual, couple, family or group. It aims to teach mind/body/spirit tools increase clients’ sense of well-being, and improve mental health by reducing uncomfortable symptoms and self-defeating thinking and behaviors. The therapist utilizes a variety of techniques to achieve this goal.
