My Approach to Helping

Want a positive space to recreate your life? That is what Life Synergy offers. Our skilled clinicians each have their own niche. They work with adolescents, teens, pre-teens, adults, or a combination. Our providers help clients overcome life\'s challenges and stressors. Together we\'ll explore issues such as addiction, anxiety, anger management, substance abuse, relationship issues, depression, stress, sexuality, self-harm, chronic illness, cancer survivors, self-esteem, caregiving, etc. We offer a warm, safe space that provides the tools essential for clients to address and conquer the challenges of today\'s life. We offer a positive, nonjudgmental space where individuals can safely share.

Our team is committed to working with families and individuals to improve their relationships and communication. We offer specific strategies to achieve balance and a happier life. Using cognitive techniques and motivational interviewing, we facilitate change to improve our clients\' relationships with others.

Our compassionate providers bring passion to every session. They use a range of unique techniques to help clients of all ages make healthy changes and better understand themselves. Our positive environment empowers clients to recover. We listen actively, offering caring, support, respect, and encouragement to help our clients achieve a renewed sense of well-being.
