About Us


Licensed Mental Health Provider Option:

Attending to your mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. 

We can help if you are experiencing severe mood swings that cause problems in relationships. If you are feeling helpless or hopeless, feeling unusually confused, forgetful, on edge, angry, upset, worried, or scared. 

We can help if you want to determine how we handle stress, how we relate to others, and make choices. 

Mental Health Counseling

In our therapy sessions we practice with a variety of theoretical approaches. Some utilize are:

Cognitive behavioral therapy. (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel.

We also utilize

Metacognitive therapy (MCT) is a psychotherapy focused on modifying metacognitive beliefs that perpetuate states of worry, rumination and attention fixation.

Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) is a counseling approach that helps individuals resolve their ambivalence about engaging in treatment and stopping their drug use. This approach aims to evoke rapid and internally motivated change, rather than guide the patient stepwise through the recovery process.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, cope healthily with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others.
