Here’s the truth: therapy can be tough sometimes. It can take you to places of pain and discomfort. However, it’s in these places where some of the most tremendous healing can take place. While the best thing to do in counseling is, to be honest, and open, it’s also important to listen to where you’re at and go at your own pace. Again, from our perspective, it takes a lot of bravery to head toward the stuff that scares you most. So, your decision to seek help is the first indication that there is, in fact, great power within you!

What you get out of therapy largely depends on you. That is, while it is important to have a competent, experienced therapist helping to guide you, the best counselor or therapist in the world can’t help you if you are not willing to put in the work yourself—to be honest about where you’re at, where you’ve been, and where you want to go.

This depends on what you are going through when you first meet with your counselor. However, as a basic rule of thumb we recommend that people who are beginning counseling to come on a weekly basis. This gives you a chance to build momentum and really start making progress on your goals.

We offer a wide range of therapy services tailored to meet your individual needs. Our services include individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapy, and more.
