Choosing a Counselor to Meet Your Needs

Finding the right counselor is key to the success of counseling. Therapists and counselors are not "one size fits all." It's important to find one you can connect with and feel comfortable talking to. Our counselors and therapists come from a variety of backgrounds and training. We are unique in many ways, but we all believe in personal empowerment. If you're feeling stuck or overwhelmed right now, we believe you have the strength and ability to overcome the struggle. We can help you find these things in yourself. Our counselors use various modalities of therapy, always with your needs, goals and preferences in mind. Read about us to find the counselor that's right for you.
