  • Anxiety

    Research shows that psychotherapy is often the most effective option for treating anxiety disorders because therapy seeks to resolve the root of an individual’s anxiety. Social anxiety might cause you to worry that you are being judged harshly by others, which can cause you to avoid everyday interactions or feel embarrassed and self-conscious. Generalized anxiety may lead you to worry about everything all the time, which can cause exhaustion.  No matter what you are experiencing, we can help to uncover the underlying causes of your anxiety, learn how to truly relax, anchor your perspective, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills so you can face the world without fear.


    Autism Spectrum Disorder, commonly abbreviated as ASD or simply referred to as Autism, is a neurobehavioral disorder with a spectrum of symptoms and impairments that range in severity. Autism is characterized by difficulty in communicating and interacting with others, and obsessive or repetitive behavior. As information about autism is made more available many are noticing symptoms in themselves or their children. If you find yourself wondering if you are among this population, we can help you get support. We provide the gold-standard diagnostic test, ADOS-2, to get answers and clarity for you or a loved one. A diagnosis of ASD opens doors to helpful services, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and provides understanding that can be used to greatly improve an autistic individual’s ability to interact with the world.

    In addition to testing and diagnosis, we provide psychotherapy to help individuals with their specific concerns that may include the treatment of anxiety, anger management, or building social skills. We offer support to caregivers through Parent Coaching, giving caregivers clear information on a new diagnosis and by teaching behavior management strategies to best support their loved one.

    Bipolar Disorder

    Bipolar Disorder (BPD) is often misunderstood, and this can leave those with this diagnosis feeling misunderstood and isolated. We see you.

    Bipolar Disorder creates mood episodes ranging from depressive lows to euphoric highs. The severity of these symptoms varies greatly and impacts each person differently, but symptoms can include suicidal ideation, risky behaviors, or psychosis. The cycle of highs and lows can feel exhausting and defeating. We are here to help you better understand the diagnosis and your specific symptoms so that you can regain your autonomy and stability. We collaborate with you to establish strategies that manage a mood episode and allow you to engage in meaningful relationships, reach your career goals, and feel fulfilled.

    Communication & Conflict Resolution

    Communication is an essential part of any relationship, whether that relationship is romantic, familial, or professional. With any relationship, including the positive ones, there will be conflict. Even still, trying to deal with discord when it comes up can feel frustrating, impossible, and anything but healthy or normal. Since disagreements are an unavoidable part of life, learning to handle them in a positive, constructive, and problem-focused way is crucial to happiness and well-being. We can provide education and skill building to give you the tools you and the people you care about need to effectively communicate and navigate conflict in all settings so you can maintain the relationships that are important to you.


    You are not alone. We are here.

    We understand the social stigmas that come with the label of being depressed, and want to help you understand the environmental, biological, and circumstantial factors that contribute to depression. We value you, and through building a strong working relationship we will help you get through this very dark time. We have helped others find relief and have hope again, and we are ready to do that for you.

    Life Transitions

    There’s no denying that life often presents us with countless challenges, usually in the form of sudden change. Humans are creatures of routine. Change, even positive change, can create feelings of stress or confusion, and can be overwhelming.  We can equip you with helpful tools and new perspectives to help you feel capable of conquering any challenge. We focus on utilizing your strengths and cultivating techniques to overcome your vulnerabilities to whatever life brings. We also reflect on your progress with intention, serving the dual purpose of helping you be well in the present and to grow your resilience for whatever the future may bring.

    Parent Coaching

    Nothing really prepares you to become a parent. With all the information out there, it is difficult to know what strategy to use for your family. We will work with you to create a unique Behavior Modification Plan that meets your family’s needs.

    Parent Coaching is more goal-oriented than psychotherapy, which is often focused on understanding as a catalyst for change. Where psychotherapy emphasizes exploring past events to recognize their impact on moods and behaviors. Parent coaching prioritizes choosing one goal at a time (get my child to do their homework without a daily tantrum) and offers evidence-based techniques to help get the outcomes your family desires. We guide you through the development and implementation of a Behavior Modification Plan to give you the tools to reduce tantrums and improve relationships.


    The desire to improve one’s relationships is one of the most common reasons for starting therapy. Humans are social beings and rely on relationships, but many of us are never taught the tools to establish and maintain healthy relationships. We can provide you with the knowledge to successfully navigate the various relationships in your life. We can give you tools that can lead to better interactions with family, friends, partners, and colleagues. You may be involved in a relationship that has harmful qualities, like abuse or codependency, which can make you feel powerless or hopeless. We will equip you with the knowledge to identify these patterns and skills to establish the relationships you want and deserve.

    Therapy for Teens

    Teenagers face a strange phase of life that includes a combination of great fun, burgeoning freedom, yet a tremendous amount of stress. During this time, hormone levels are skyrocketing, bodily appearances are changing, the brain is still developing. This turbulent time often leaves teens feeling out of control. Additionally, today’s teens are faced with intense pressure to perform well academically and to fit into social circles. This pressure takes a toll on a teen’s mental health and overall well-being. We can work with you and your teen to grow the knowledge and skills to navigate this life phase. We help develop problem-solving skills that they will need to be successful as they enter their young adulthood. We will help your teen better understand their emotions and offer them appropriate ways for self-expression.

    Additionally, we can provide support for you, parenting a teen is not easy! Parents and caregivers often struggle to find the right balance between independence and structure for their child. There is no question that teens, and even adult children, still need support, and we can help you ensure that you are giving the right amount so that your teen has the room to grow yet the security they need to thrive.


    Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime, even though it is commonly thought of as something that only happens to military veterans. Trauma occurs on a spectrum and labels such as “big T traumas” and “little t traumas” are often used to differentiate. Because what is traumatic varies so greatly from person to person we can use emotions like confusion, fear, and numbness to help identify trauma. Traumatic experiences can occur when a person experiences exposure to a threat or violence by experiencing it, witnessing it, or even learning about it. We recognize that what may be traumatic for one person may not be for another therefore we will allow you to set the pace for difficult topics. We will provide you with a safe and judgement-free environment to discuss your experiences and heal.
