Therapy For Anxiety, Depression, And Mood Disorders
Now Is The Right Time To Start Counseling
We all experience periods of struggle in our lives. Sometimes life’s challenges can leave us overwhelmed and exhausted, feeling lost.
There is new research and time-honored practices that can help.
A therapist can look through the struggle and see your strengths. They can point out resources you might not know you have.
Whether you are struggling with losses, anxiety, the trap of perfectionism, depression, childhood abuse, or relationship strains, we are here to support you on your journey toward healing and growth.
This is the time to make sense of your life and to live it wholeheartedly.

Everyone has unique strong points and we have an inner drive toward using them. We want to be appreciated for exactly who we are, without hiding or pretending. We want to relax into our own shoes, put down the weight of others’ expectations, and drop the limiting beliefs we have adopted.
That’s when we can pick up our real work in the world and begin living authentically. That’s when our relationships are filled with true emotional connection and comfort.
Even if it’s hard to hear that true voice, if you’ve gotten into a habit of letting others dictate your choices, if your confidence has been lost under the weight of life’s everyday pressures, we still believe you have real power that is unique to you, and we would like to help you find it.
Using traditional talk therapy, and more specialized modern methods, we have worked with people who suffer from anxiety, depression, childhood abuse, sexual trauma, some eating disorders, relationship strain, traumatic stress, and traumatic losses.
Have you been defining yourself by your weaknesses?
Lets turn that around together.

Counseling builds confidence
Anxiety, depression, and mood disorders often impact our level of confidence and how comfortable we feel with doing certain tasks. You may find yourself feeling anxious in certain social circles. Wanting to share your input yet struggle to do so. Or you may find that the low mood or lack of motivation directly connects to decreasing your level of confidence.
When you choose to invest in yourself, you are taking time to grow into your best version while addressing challenges. Counseling can be your zone. Your space of comfort.
Learn healthy coping skills with counseling
Working with a counselor provides space to understand what we can do during those crippling moments. Counseling helps people enjoy life, build success, and find calmness by engaging in coping skills.
Coping skills are tools that help you manage emotions, reduce negative thoughts or feelings, or face difficult situations.
A safe space to grow and learn with your therapist
People often take time to seek counseling. Wait for days, months, or years. One of the key reasons is safety. Knowing that you are going to share your deepest thoughts with a complete stranger.
It’s important to know that counseling is confidential and safe. Counseling gives you a space of compassion, support and that does not judge or criticize. Together, you work with your counselor in building strength with vulnerability. The vulnerability of learning to share the deep thoughts and knowing that it takes pure strength to do so.

Zach started counseling because he felt overwhelmed with everything. It’s exactly what he decided to write in the intake papers for his first counseling session. He checked the boxes labeled, problems focusing, trouble sleeping, difficulty stopping worry, and more. Zach shared with the counselor that he spent months trying to start counseling. He would go online, get on Google and type in things like. How to feel less anxious. Why can’t I stop worrying? What to do about panic attacks? Does medication really help with anxiety?
Zach told the counselor that he felt anxious for most of his life. He remembers being closed off as a kid. During the session, Zach, learned the root of anxiety. He was able to gain insight to understanding why certain situations and people made him feel more anxious over time. Zach shared with the counselor that at times he feels he can’t do certain things. He feels that it’s difficult to concentrate and often finds himself having to read things over and over. During several sessions, Zach mentioned wanting to get control back over his life.
The therapist helped Zach build self-confidence which over time became a new way of thinking. During several sessions, Zach was able to practice visualization through situations. The therapist worked with him to understand how he can build tools and skills that help with reducing anxiety. Zach started to trust himself and after a few sessions, he was able to manage anxiety through self-empowerment.
