Anger Management

The work we will do can help you understand your triggers for anger, develop and practice coping skills, and think, feel, and behave differently in response to anger, so you are calmer and more in control.


Through our work, it can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears. Therapy will help you learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways, all while developing better coping and problem-solving skills. Through treatment, it will give you the tools to overcome anxiety and teach you how to use them.

Sexual Abuse

Sexual assault is amongst the most traumatic experiences a person can undergo. The trauma can be debilitating, leaving scars on your self-imagine and self-esteem. Whether in life or to what extent you have experienced sexual abuse, your emotions, feelings, and beliefs matter and are valid. Together, we can guide you to rebuilding your self-esteem, process hurt, and retake control of your life.

Emotional Disturbance

Through therapy, the goal is to minimize stress and cultivate positive and appropriate responses to social situations. The goal is to help move perceptions away from negativity and establish self-affirming habits to help you succeed.

Psychological Testing

Psychological testing might sound intimidating; however, it is designed to help you. Together, we can use tests and other assessment tools to measure and observe behaviors to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment. Please inquire about the type of assessments available.


There are many ways to approach the experience of a partner’s infidelity; you may wish to focus on forgiveness, letting go, moving on, or all three. In therapy, you can choose to work individually or as a couple to strengthen your emotional and sexual intimacy, experience more satisfaction in your relationship, atone for past infidelities and insensitivities, and nurture healthier habits.

Men's Issues

Men often face challenges with both emotional expression and connection. Together, we can help you identify, learn to deal with, and effectively express emotions in ways that are more adaptive and can help preserve and strengthen your relationships personally, professionally and everywhere in between.

Relationship Issues

Have you and your partner found yourself in a rut? Do fights occur often? Together, we can help you and your partner get to the core of your problems, find new ways of communication, and strengthen the emotional connection with one another. You and your partner can build a stronger relationship and address conflict in a safe and supportive environment by working together.

Peer Relationships

Problems can occur in all relationships; friends, colleagues, supervisors, and peers. When these relationships become negative, you may begin to feel the need to conform under pressure, or the opposite, radically confront the issue. Perhaps you felt unsuccessful or dissatisfied with these outcomes. Together, we can help provide support for self-individuation, effective communication, and building healthy boundaries with yourself and others.

Behavioral Issues

Therapy can help you identify unhealthy thought patterns and understand how those thoughts contribute to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. Once we recognize patterns, we will evoke constructive approaches to both thoughts and behaviors.

Life Transitions

When you experience change, you become vulnerable because the flow of life has changed. You might notice yourself feeling worried, stressed, tired/fatigued, or experiencing sleeping or eating problems. Perhaps you noticed a shift in your mood or physical symptoms with no known medical connection. Together, we can work toward acclimating you to change at both a conscious and unconscious level to identify areas that you feel stuck or challenged.
