Therapy Services

Make peace with the past, find solutions for lasting change, and live the story of your best self.

The Intensity of the Pain You Feel Does Not Require the Same Intensity to Heal.

You can relieve your pain without reliving it.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Therapy is a sanctuary for you, a safe, non-judgmental space where you can take refuge from life’s roles and expectations to express yourself authentically and be accepted in your most authentic expression.

COUPLES THERAPY

Relationships are complex and exciting, and couples can find both joy and pain with each other. No matter your age or how long you have been together, the search to feel that sense of belonging, connection, and meaning through relationship is a powerful force. This drive influences our decisions and actions in partnership on every level.
