We provide various treatment options and support groups, allowing many to choose the best method of interventions.

Our core belief is accepting our clients and meeting them where they are and providing the proper interventions, support and positive coping skills to help them achieve the proper peace of mind they deserve.


trauma therapy

We fully understand the struggles of living with the past, while attempting to live in the present. Having difficulties with trusting love ones and friends. Easily angered by the actions or gestures of another person. Isolating yourself from others. Having difficulty with sleeping, eating and feeling jumpy. Trauma affects the way we interact with others, our ability to function daily and how we perceive the world around us. Unfortunately, many will believe the emotional and physical anguish he or she has experience is a part of life.

Substance Abuse Counseling

We offer a personalized substance abuse counseling, which engages the support of the family and loved ones. With a substance abuse counselor, you will have the ability to stay focused and motivated to maintain abstinence. No matter how long you suffered with your addiction.

Many are considering marriage, to newlyweds, and married couples struggling with family concerns such as financial, wanting to start a family, or dealing with behavioral problems from their children.
