Adult Counseling

We believe relationships are at the heart of human experience and are central to the therapeutic process.  Individuals and couples of all ages and backgrounds can learn to increase self-esteem, learn to manage anger, enhance communication skills, and improve executive functioning skills in order to live more fulfilling lives. Together, we can find ways for you to create more positive and satisfying personal and professional relationships.

Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Are you having trouble staying organized at home and/or at work? Do you start projects that never get finished? Do you feel like you’re always on the go and can’t slow down? You can find solutions for managing the details of life that will allow you to better enjoy your unique strengths.

Adult Learning Disabilities
Do you find that you learn differently than others? Have you always struggled with reading or writing? Does math seem like a foreign language?  By understanding your learning styles and maximizing your personal and professional strengths you can increase success. Because learning disabilities can affect all areas of life, we will work on building self-esteem, self-acceptance, and supportive communities.

Couple’s Counseling
Over time, even the strongest relationship can run into problems.  Have you lost intimacy? Do you argue frequently?  Do you have trouble understanding one another? Through learning effective listening and communication techniques you can reignite the love, passion and respect in your relationship.

Depression, Anxiety and Eating Disorders
Most people need support and guidance sometime in their lives when they experience tragedy, trauma, or just feel “stuck”.  In order to break through anxiety, depression, cyclical behaviors and eating disorders we use awareness, coping techniques and self-exploration.  By practicing and integrating living more mindfully, you can experience more joy in your life.

Grief and Loss
When you have experienced a life-changing loss, it can be difficult to both grieve and manage everyday life. Whether you are experiencing the death of a loved one, surviving a trauma, or facing the end of a relationship, together, we can create a safe space to honor and explore your feelings. Over time, you can learn to acknowledge your loss while embracing all that life has to offer.

Identity Concerns
Are your family’s or society’s expectations for your life not right for you? By providing support and guidance for you to explore your dreams and aspirations and/or define your sexual orientation you will be able to discover your authentic self. We can identify your priorities, strengths, and values and develop a plan to help you start living the life you want.
