Psychotherapy is the use of techniques to assist in managing thoughts, feelings, and behavior. It is generally employed to relieve symptoms of emotional or behavioral dysfunction or distress; however, it is also used to help people achieve greater levels of self-awareness, to explore and realize potential, navigate through life transitions, and enhance current and future relationships. To achieve this, and more, approaches commonly used (but not limited to) are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavioral (DBT), Play Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, to name a few.



This type of therapy involves a client meeting one-on-one with a therapist, usually in a 45-60 minute session. During the time of your sessions, your therapist will help you resolve the issues that bring you to counseling and help you establish, or re-establish, your life as a thriving, healthy and successful process again. Your therapist will help you identify goals that you seek to accomplish, then help you to embolden and release the positive aspects of YOU which already exist. You may also identify disruptive and/or unhealthy patterns from the past, and learn to eliminate them as you strive to achieve your goals.


This is a type of therapy in which the therapist sees two people together to address the issues which have brought the couple to therapy. The purpose is to reconcile the bond between the two people in the therapy and to identify healthier ways to live well together.


This is when a therapist sees a family to address the issues and problems raised by the family members. The ultimate purpose is to learn healthier adaptive living skills and to reconcile the family into a healthy unit that trusts, honors, and respects one another.


This type of therapy employs one or more therapists who treat a small group of clients together as a group. The group process can be a powerful motivator of change by developing, exploring, and examining interpersonal relationships and behaviors within the group and learning more adaptive and healthy living skills for transference outside the group.
