What We Believe

 We like to view therapy as an unbiased alliance between two people; a co-creation. Therapy is a time for the client to talk about concerns, issues, feelings, fears, and wishes. Therapy should be a forum where the client can speak their mind without feeling judged or shameful. Therapy is beneficial in that it allows one to speak about intimate and often painful life experiences, recieve guidance, and gain insight into their thought processes/behavior patterns. Different treatment modalities are used for different clients depending on their presenting concerns. Treatment is tailored to the individual/circumstance. Therapy is reflective and helps individuals gain self-awareness, develop healthy coping skills, learn how to manage stressors, and balance life roles more effectively. The ultimate goal of therapy is to allow individuals to overcome barriers, reach their goals and live a productive, meaningful and happy life.
