SERVICES

Types of Counseling:

  • Individual

    • This type of counseling is perfect for almost anyone who is looking to work on life events, stressors, past traumas, etc.
  • Family

    • We realize that it can be difficult to let a strange know about issues that are going on within a family system, however a neutral 3rd party can be exactly what is needed in order to keep the conversation moving to a solution.
    • This option would be a great fit for those struggling with teens, young adults, older adults and/or elders.
    • This is not specific to "one type" of family, however you describe the word "family" we can help!
  • Addiction

      • When we think of the word "addiction" we may automatically think of alcohol or drug abuse, and while we do have the expertise to treat substance use.
      • We also have the expertise to treat families who have been effected by a loved ones addiction.
      • We also treat process disorders such as: gambling, sex, technology, etc.
