WE ARE OPEN AND CONDUCTING ALL SERVICES REMOTELY
How can therapy help me?
During this time of crisis, we literally are all dealing with this pandemic together. I understand that attending therapy remotely is rather unconventional or it was until now. To keep you, our therapists, and all our staff safe and still providing all services as we normally would, we are providing all services remotely via zoom for the time being that is undoubtedly HIPPA compliant. You will receive the same quality care as you would expect in person but now it will be live via zoom. Be safe and we are here if you need us. Thank you.

Do I really need therapy?
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out therapeutic support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is a strength. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you or your loved one is at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you are facing.
Why do people go to therapy and how do I know if it is right for me?
People have many different motivations for coming to psychotherapy. Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks, etc. and therapy can help provide some much needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives.
