EMDR Therapy

EMDR is most well known for working with trauma or PTSD. However there are many other effective uses for EMDR.

Individual Therapy

Stress, career demands, family/ friend relationships and responsibilities,  caring for parents or family members, loss of relationships, sex, spirituality, Individual growth, career transitions, trauma, anxiety, depression, concentration and focus are just a few topics that adults of all ages often struggle with. 

When it feels like something is weighing heavily on you, or throwing you off track, it can be incredibly beneficial to explore what those underlying issues, thoughts, and feelings are. Therapy can often help in teaching us ways to decrease symptoms, increase ways we can cope with issues, prevent and recover from burnout and finding clarity within ourselves.

Yoga on the Beach

Wellness Services, classes & coaching

We incorporate a holistic approach to mental health and wellness. Often therapists recommend other things you can do for yourself for self care, like yoga, mediation, sound healing, aromatherapy, emotion management groups etc. So we have made it a priority to provide this in our practice to our clients. 


Sometimes there are things in life that we just need someone to show us how to do, or help us step by step in doing. This could be practicing life skills, activities of daily living, practicing interviews, building resumes and looking for work etc. We have amazing staff to help with these needs that are not clinically therapeutic or appropriate for therapy.
