Our Specialties

Anxiety Counseling

You’re overwhelmed daily, feeling like you can’t quite catch your breath. You would label yourself as “anxious” and may experience muscle tension, restlessness, feeling like you want to crawl out of your own skin, and anxiety or panic attacks. Slowing everything down seems impossible and you want to learn skills to quiet the worry. We can work with that. 

Career and Professional Stress Counseling

You try so hard at everything you do. You have dedicated your life to your accomplishments. It feels like a sigh of relief when others praise you for your ambition and dedication to others. Underneath, you also feel a sense of emptiness. No matter how hard you work, it always feels like something is missing. To others it might look like you have it all, but under all your busyness is the fear that you are not enough.

Depression Counseling

You may be thinking, “Aren’t we all a little depressed?” Terms like depression are commonly tossed around to depict a general feeling of sadness. It might be time to talk when most days you feel there is a heavy cloud weighing you down. You may feel as though getting out of the bed in the morning is impossible, and completing everyday tasks is getting harder by the minute. Even reading this far down the page is a chore.

LGBTQIA+ Advocate & Ally

Identifying as LGBTQIA+ is not a disorder. In our space, you won’t need to justify your existence or plead your case. You’ve had experiences that have left an impression and are looking for a way to unravel all the pieces. Whether you’re facing life changes, anxiety, depression, addiction, religious trauma or self-esteem, we can navigate the journey together.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
