  • Family communication problems
  • Defiant, angry, or isolated teens
  • Grief and issues of loss
  • Marriage stress
  • Transitions after divorce or separation

  • Self-development
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Stress Management
  • Social Skills
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

Individual counseling provides an opportunity for you  to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Together, we can discuss your issues or concerns with:

Counseling/ Therapy

While there is an array of behavior therapies, speech therapies, and occupational therapies targeting individuals with disabilities, very few therapists have a background in the unique dynamics that a family member with a disability experiences, as well as the impact that caring and supporting that individual has on siblings, parents, guardians, and caregivers. 
Our counseling services are rooted in a Mindfullness-based Family Play Therapy model that holds the following beliefs:

  • Therapy is most effective in a family context
  • Parent/ caregiver education and awareness of issues supports the success of individual's therapeutic experiences
  • Right-brain approaches to therapy such as play therapy (for children) and the use of sandtray (for children and adults) offer unique experiences to communicate emotions and heal trauma 

Taking the first step to seek support comes easy to some and harder to others. We offer the opportunity to share your situation and see if our counseling services may benefit you and/or your family.
