What We Do

We understand how to motivate and inspire change.


Our approach to therapy is holistic and grounded in narrative and cognitive behavioral theory. We see you in the context of your entire life not just through the lens of a single issue or problem. We diagnose and develop treatment plans for individuals, couples, families, and groups.


Our customized personal coaching plans are designed to reflect a client's expressed interests, goals and objectives. In coaching, we address the "obstacles" that block personal development. We thought partner with you to explore patterns in your life and we teach you how to navigate life's obstacles with strength and confidence.
