We work from a family systems perspective and use a strength-based, solution focused approach to help clients realize their goals. We serve adults, teens, and children and offer individual, couple, family, sand tray and play therapy. We work with many different issues including (but not limited to) couple conflict, anxiety, depression, stress management, divorce, child behavioral issues and parenting issues. We enjoy collaborating with our clients and aim to create an experience of therapy that feels individualized to the individual, couple or family we are treating. We use cognitive-behavioural techniques, mindfulness, and other empirically based methods to help clients achieve the changes they desire. We will collaborate with primary care physicians, schools, and other professionals to make sure we are working as a team with the other important professionals in your life.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

We have had a lot of success helping people who suffer from anxiety and panic attacks relieve their symptoms in a relatively short period of time. We also have several therapists who are a good fit for many teenagers and young adults, and have helped a lot of families transition into a more loving, respectful dynamic.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Person to person "fit" is the most important factor. It doesn't matter how many degrees someone has on the wall or how many books they have in print, if you don't feel a good connection with your therapist, therapy will be less effective. You want to look for a licensed professional, or a professional working toward licensure under good supervision. Therapy is an investment in your mental health and happiness and you are worth finding someone who is not only a skilled clinician, but someone you feel safe with and connected to.
