The Office

We strive to focus on creating a safe and sacred space that allows trusting relationships to develop. We believe any problems can be talked about, any situations can be improved and all feelings can be explored and better understood. Trust between you and your therapist is vital to successful counseling and we offer a wide variety of methods to help you find the strength to change and the healing that takes place within. All sessions are confidential and focused on your unique and individual issues. Our clinicians are well trained in the use of standard psycho-therapeutic practices and adhere to all the guidelines and regulations as required by law. It has been said that the language of childhood is play. Our clinicians are trained in the use of play therapy for children of all ages.
