Linehan, this specialized form of cognitive behavioral therapy is helpful for people who experience intense emotional extremes which then negatively impact multiple areas of life.learn more

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-centered approach developed by Pat Ogden that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved traumatic events.

Anxiety is the mind and body's natural reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations. A certain level of anxiety helps us stay alert and aware, but for many people the worry and fear are out of proportion to the events occurring in the present moment.

Living includes facing the reality of loss – the death of loved one, the end of a significant relationship, or the loss of a job. In grief counseling, we will help you to understand what normal grief looks like, provide tools for working through the pain of grief, and offer support as you begin to take steps toward acceptance and moving on. Our goal is not to fix you but instead be with you in your pain.
Our therapists are professional clinicians with a Christian faith background. For those who desire an integration of spirituality and psychology, we offer clinical interventions that weave the two together. We value the spiritual journey of each person and commit to providing an inviting and non-judgmental space for people to explore who they are in relationship to themselves, others and God.
