Life Coaching

Plant growing from a small sapling to a large tree representing personal growth

We offer life coaching for those who are facing important but difficult transitions, decisions, and lifestyle changes, particularly with respect to health and wellness. If you or someone you love could use some structured guidance, support, and encouragement to set goals and determine strategies for achieving them, we might be a great resource.

Family Therapy

Family working together

Sometimes, solutions for interpersonal concerns occurs most effectively within the context of family therapy, particularly for parents and kids facing unusual health, wellness, or psychological challenges. If you or someone you love could use help navigating the unique needs that families can experience, we might be a great resource.

Couples Counseling

Couple having an argument but wanting to work on their problems and seek counseling

Couples, whether dating, cohabitating, married, or other, can present unique challenges to one another that can make resolution difficult without an outsider’s professional perspective. Couples counseling is one of our most popular services. If you or someone you love could use help with communication, conflict management, or alignment of life goals and strategies, we might be a great resource.

Grief Counseling

Girl dealing with grief

Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and we support that normality.  Sometimes, however, there are complications due to low support from family and friends, unresolved angers or hurts, unaddressed needs that loss curtails, and other factors. If you or someone you love could use help navigating one or more significant losses – no matter how recent or distant in the past, we might be a great resource.
