Payment is required at the start of each session. We accept most insurances, cash, check, or credit cards. See below for summaries of specific areas of service.
Psychotherapy and counseling can help you find relief from the distress of anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma and behavioral disturbances. Grow personally and socially, as you find and trust your inner-self using your past and present experiences, your spiritual and cultural beliefs, and your personal dreams and motivations.
Work in a neutral environment to develop new patterns of interaction and communication: heal wounds, make mutually beneficial decisions, improve life stages to be more fulfilling for you and your family unit. Use past and present experiences to provide insight and to support growth and development.
Play Therapy serves two primary functions: (A) it is used as a window to a child’s feelings and perceptions — by watching how they treat their toys; the roles assigned to them by the child and the way the child perceives their interactions often provides insights to their depression, phobia, cognitive difficulties, and other issues, or lack thereof, and; (B) it allows counselors a way to communicate with non-verbal children, and/or serve as a catalyst to build a bond of trust between them, with the child eventually opening up.
