Trauma and PTSD: Coping with Difficult Life Experiences

Difficult life experiences can overwhelm your ability to cope with life’s stressors and make you vulnerable to thoughts and mood swings. This can leave people feeling drained, overwhelmed both physically and emotionally. No matter the trauma we understand and can help you move back towards the person you want to be.

Stress Management: Reducing What’s Weighing You down

Therapy can be an important part of stress management when you are constantly feeling overwhelmed. Stress can also contribute to reduced ability to cope with life demands and can strain the important relationships in your life. In therapy we coach you through getting the skills you need to reduce the stress weighing you down.

Gender & Sexuality

Therapy is a safe place to explore thoughts and feelings about your sexuality. We are open and affirming to gender nonconforming folks and well versed in the needs of the LGBTQ community. All are welcome here.
