WHO NEEDS COUNSELING?

Everyone may benefit from counseling at some point in their lives. Sometimes people need counseling because something traumatic happened to them. Sometimes people need counseling because their emotions interfere with their daily lives. Sometimes people just need someone to talk openly with. 

The length of your counseling varies based on your individual needs. Some people only have one counseling session while others may work with their therapist for months or even years. We take an individualized approach to ensure you get the right help for as long as you need it.

Call today to learn more or to schedule an appointment. We’ll complete a short intake with you over the phone to discuss your unique needs, discuss insurance and payment options that may be available to you, and schedule your first appointment.

We accept many insurance plans including Medicaid. Services are offered on a sliding-scale to ensure affordability. Please talk with us if you’re concerned about paying for counseling.

HOW WE CAN HELP

Our therapists can help with a variety of issues including depression, trauma, pregnancy, self-esteem, trust, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, family and relationship concerns, parenting, sexual or other abuse, conflict resolution, behavioral and mental health, substance abuse or addiction, post-adoption support, foster care related issues, grief and loss, and more.

When appropriate, our counselors utilize a trauma-informed approach to treating children, teens, and adults, recognizing that each person is an individual, with individual strengths and needs. This approach understands that traumatic events can overwhelm a child’s ability to cope and has both immediate and long-term impacts on functioning and behaviors. We  can work with you and your child to overcome traumatic experiences and start a path towards healing and growth.
