Why Counseling?

“A major advantage of psychotherapy over treatment with medication is that psychotherapy has few physiological side effects” – Johns Hopkins

Making the decision to seek counseling usually comes when we are feeling that we need to make a change, when our choices begin to impact our lives in negative ways, when our relationships are difficult, when what we did before no longer serves us well, or in cases of crisis we feel we have nowhere else to turn.

Psychotherapy can help with a wide range of relational issues including:

  • Parenting/Re-parenting
  • Life Transitions
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Depression
  • Grief/Loss
  • Addiction and Recovery
  • Post Traumatic Stress
  • Mood and Personality disorders

  • Mindfulness
  • Relaxation
  • Creating and Building Respectful Relationship

  • How to Heal Old Wounds
  • Assertiveness
  • Effective Communication
