We believe that our role is to help you identify why you are stuck in your life and work with you to create the outcome you want. We do this through a variety of methods and techniques, and through estabilishing a collaborative partnership with you to reach your goals.
We work with adults and adolescents ages 5 years old and older. Although we help clients address a wide range of issues, our therapists specialize in treating anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, and poor coping skills. We also provide medication management.
We provide a comfortable, casual atmosphere for therapy that incorporates humor, so clients feel ease when speaking with us.
We offer a new cutting-edge service: eCounseling, which allows you to receive feedback from a licensed counselor via email or live chat. Check it out on our website!

We accept most major insurances, and provide a sliding scale for those not using insurance if it is needed. We have a great staff that will get your insurance verified and your benefits determined before your first session, and we handle all billing as well.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
The therapeutic relationship is THE most important factor in any therapeutic process. This is a well documented finding in the research. It is more important than the technique employed by the therapist.
Clients can expect that our therapists are very well trained building a strong therapeutic alliance that is based on trust. We make sure we do everything we can so that the sessions feel comfortable and are "safe" for clients. We go at the "pace" of the client, so you will never feel rushed or pushed into talking about or facing something you are not ready for. We depend the client to be their own expert on themselves, so that we defer to the clients goals and needs in therapy.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
The length of therapy depends on the reason that the client is coming in and how committed they are to making changes. We see most clients weekly because it is easier to keep forward change and momentum with regular visits. However, in some cases it is more appropriate for clients to come every other week or once a month.
Generalloy speaking, the national average for the length in time in therapy is 10-12 sessions. Most people discover that they want to work beyond the reasons that brought them in, so we find that clients who are engaged in the process tend to stay in therapy to work on things that may not have been their initial goals as well.
Although the therapist should have a good idea of the progress of the client and how well goals have been met, it is the client who has ultimate authority about when he or she is finished with therapy. People might leave the therapy process before the therapist believes the work is complete for a variety of reasons, but that is the right of the client.
