Counseling & Consultation


Individual sessions for children, youth, and adults provide one-on-one attention where the sole focus is on the well-being and functioning of the client. 

There are times that we need to take a step back from the stress of our everyday lives to re-examine how we are coping and functioning both personally and professionally.  We provide a safe and confidential environment to explore life’s challenges with a licensed professional whose role is to listen and support.  Together we develop an action plan with strategies to improve your interactions and decrease your stress.
