Here For You

In sessions we will work to address current struggles and find a little more balance in your life.

Managing Emotions

Often times we are not taught the skills to help mange, process, and express your emotions in healthy and effective ways. Through your work with our therapists, you will learn actionable steps to help you learn to identify, manage, and process your emotions openly and in a healthy manner. Additionally, you can learn new ways to communicate and express your emotions to help foster your loving relationships. We will help you gain insight into your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. Need a little direction in your life? We can work together to explore what you want most in life and develop small, achievable goals to help you reach your life's dream. We utilize an integrative theoretical approach, specialized to you. 

Transitions with an Affirmative Approach

Specialized training in working with the transgender and gender diverse community, has helped prepare us to provide ethical, quality care to gender non-conforming and transgender identified individuals. This training involved helping clients towards hormone readiness and completing insurance referral letters for gender affirmation surgery.
