INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING & LIFE COACHING
Our approach to individual clinical counseling and non-clinical life coaching is person centered. Our clients’ growth is obtained by outlining specific action-oriented goals aimed at using one’s strengths to leverage desired life changes. In collaboration with our clients, we promote a therapeutic relationship that consists of trust and open communication to allow for positive change.
Both men and women alike are invested in overcoming obstacles that interfere with their hopes and dreams for a more satisfying quality of life.

We specialize in the following areas:
Child or Adolescent
Our approach to family counseling is pragmatic with the facilitation of both structural and strategic methodologies. Our approach is to serve the family within the context of its ecology. Using a family systems approach, we assist families in maintaining balance within the family unit by defining the roles and responsibilities of family members while reinforcing practical approaches to presenting problems. We assist families in maximizing the strengths of their ecology to enhance the quality of life for each family member.
We assist families with implementing interventions that successfully address challenges presented within the family. Our goal is to aid individual family members in identifying and leveraging their strengths toward efforts that improve relationships among the family unit.
We are especially committed to assisting families in healing from circumstances of separation and divorce. We are equally passionate about strengthening the foundations of blended families. We consider it a privilege to assist parents and guardians in improving their parenting, co-parenting and family relations.
Our treatment progress is measured by reducing the frequency and duration of problems experienced within the family. Family member’s strengths are incorporated into interventions to promote successful outcomes. The interventions developed with families ultimately increase the emotional health of the family.
We specialize in relationship and couples counseling. Our initial goal is to assist individuals in assessing the underlining causes of their relationship challenges.
Our approach to couples counseling is to assist couples in mastering the art of effective communication and active listening skills. We assist couples in exploring the strengths and opportunities that exist within their relationships. Our goal is to aid couples in the process of strengthening their relationship while negotiating how their unique attributes can complement their desires to master obstacles presented in their relationship.
We customize interventions that are client driven and designed to enhance cohesiveness between couples. Our aim is to equip couples with the tools to successfully address the underlining causes of relationship concerns.
We collaborate with couples to develop goals that address presenting problems stemming from core issues. Interventions recommended to couples consist of practical homework assignments that are performed outside of the session and designed to aid couples in their efforts to communicate more effectively. The aim is to assist couples in sustaining strengths and resolving conflicts in a manner that satisfies the desired goals of both partners.
Techniques employed in couples counseling include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy
We are passionate about our commitment to veterans, members of the armed forces and their families. We truly recognize that members of the armed forces make enormous sacrifices for our nation. Unfortunately, the sacrifices made by service members, their families and significant others can lead to behavioral health concerns that impact quality of life.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, nearly one in four active duty service members has shown signs of a mental health condition. If you are currently an active duty service member, veteran or family member of a service-connected person in need of support and counseling, give us a call to learn how we can help.
Services offered to our military families include but are not limited to counseling and referral services.
