Our Mission is to promote optimal mental health by fostering overall wellbeing.
Our Vision is to provide culturally responsive mental health services to promote optimal holistic health. To educate, advocate and support communities during periods or transition.
We promise to walk along side you on your journey. Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward with tools to help you regain balance.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Couples and family counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples/family and is in a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
