When Others Close... We're Open.  Open Late Nightly, 365 Days a Year


Counseling Available Weekday Evenings and Saturdays

If you or your child:

  • would like more support than your friends can provide,
  • feel as though certain areas of your life are just not working,
  • are not sure where your life is going,
  • want to do things differently,
  • need an outside perspective,
  • are concerned about your child's behavior….

We encourage you to consider counseling.

From time to time, everyone experiences emotional pain. If you, or your child, are experiencing sadness, anxiety, grief, or loss of interest in activities, therapy can help relieve the symptoms, address the underlying causes of distress, and provide you with help in restoring emotional well-being. If your child is experiencing difficulties at home or in school, you may notice an increase in acting-out behavior, agitation, irritability, and other behavioral problems.

When the way you or your child feels is affecting your family, your sleep, your eating habits, your job, and your everyday life... When even the advice offered by family or well-meaning friends doesn't really help you feel any better...therapy can be of real benefit, providing help for a wide range of problems such as depression, loss, relationship difficulties, parent-child concerns, or emotional distress. It can also help fulfill aspirations for personal growth and self-improvement.
