We enjoy surprising teenagers with the realities that their “therapist” can actually relate to them and that they may even enjoy their session. Teenagers deserve therapy that works so they can get back to their lives. We apply researcher-approved skills in a teenager-friendly, collaborative environment, reducing distress, improving relationships and reaching personal goals.

Trauma & Anxiety Therapy: You are not alone. There is treatment that works

Every life is challenged by scary and stressful experiences at some point. The good news is that people recover from trauma and anxiety when they receive effective treatment. We partner with clients, promoting healing through a trusting relationship and the implementation of evidence-based techniques, specifically EMDR and TF-CBT. In a supportive, safe environment clients heal through creating new meaning from traumatic memories and becoming the hero of their own stories.
