Individual Counseling

We journey together to gain a sense of belonging and value.  To heal from the impact of the past, difficult issues, and events that have challenged who we are and our peace.

Couples Counseling

Couples counseling helps all types of couples recognize and resolve conflicts and restore relationships. A secure base from which to live life, a compassionate and secure attachment, is vital to our sense of well being, which we can provide each other as a couple.

Youth Counseling

Children and teens need a safe, connected, and consistent home (secure base) in which to develop and be loved. They benefit from therapy by reducing emotions and behaviors that challenge them at home, school, and with friends. Individual and family therapy helps them increase connection and a sense of value and safety.

Family Counseling

Families meet our needs best when they are our safe place, our home. The system of support and safety around us that provide nurturing, cheer leading, and love. Let’s restore the feeling of home and safety together. Let’s restore each other too.

Addiction Counseling

Healing and processing the damage from the past, from life, from the world, can end the need to numb/cope with the hurt with the use of substances, gambling, or sex. Restoring connection and safety with loved ones, family, friends, with ourselves, and life.

EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy (not hypnosis) that has been proven effective for the treatment of trauma from an event from a big trauma, to cumulative small traumas over time that cause PTSD, depression, anxiety, and loss of self value. EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.
