Mental & Emotional Health Programs

Marriage & Family Therapy



Our couples therapists and marriage counselors treat some of the same issues as other psychologists, such as depression and anxiety, substance abuse, and PTSD. But their work focuses on issues that are specific to their target group, the family. Some common issues that family counselors encounter are marital conflicts, adolescent behavior problems, domestic violence and issues related to infertility.

Marriage and family therapists observe how people behave within the family, and identify relationship problems. They then come up with treatment plans so that each individual has his or her needs met and the family unit can work for the benefit and happiness of all.

Life Coaching


 Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. We believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside 

Christian Counseling


Christian counseling is a therapy focus area centering on intertwining the disciplines of faith and psychology to provide an approach to mental and emotional health that pulls from biblical teachings. Practitioners of this style of counseling incorporate religious scripture and teachings to guide you through challenging life issues. When facing turbulent life events, integrating and strengthening your faith may be the missing piece in finding proper treatment. A Christian counselor can help you to navigate life’s challenges in ways that respect your faith. 

Manifesting..Law of Attraction


A Manifestation/Law Of Attraction  coach helps you understand what you want from your future.   Manifesting stronger mental health and well-being through a wide array of therapeutic interventions, evidence based strategies, and compassionate support. 



Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapy and behavior modification. To practice hypnotherapy, you enter into hypnosis, a deeply relaxed state in which the mind becomes more responsive to suggestions. In this state, you provide suggestions directly to the subconscious mind, which can have therapeutic benefits 

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)


NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions. In other words, learning NLP is like learning the language of your own mind!

What Is Life Coaching

Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. 

Therapy Vs. Life Coaching

One of the most common misconceptions about life coaching is that it is therapy in disguise — or, worse yet, therapy from an unlicensed practitioner. In reality, life coaching is truly its own unique service designed to help ambitious achievers meet the outcomes that will bring them success and fulfillment, in any and all areas of life. Here are some of the differences between life coaching and therapy, and a basic guide for when each service is appropriate. 

The Life Coaching Format:

  • Complimentary Coaching Consultation
  • 60 to 90 minute "Design the Alliance" first session
  • One 30 to 90 minute per week (session length depends on which coach and which program)
  • Unlimited Email support
  • Occasional brief check-in calls

Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. We believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside.

Our skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself.

You, the client, are the only expert in your entire life who truly knows who you are and what you need. You are the only expert who can recognize what is absolutely best for you. We are simply experts in the coaching process. As your coach, we help you discover what your own personal "best" might be.

Every day we make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life.

Life Coaching for Pre-Teens & Teens

Common Reasons Why Parents Contact Us

Decoding: Your son or daughter isn’t doing as well as you would like. His/her behavior is mystifying at times. You can’t connect with each other. You’re concerned.

Transition Tune-Up: Your kid is entering middle school, ninth grade, the eleventh-grade grind, the “college process,” college, the “real world.” Transitions can bring out some interesting dynamics with young people and families.

Teaching Kids to Follow Their Passion: Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” The cornerstone of my work with young people is figuring out what they are truly passionate about. Are their dreams athletic, artistic, scientific? Do they include getting into a great college, getting better grades, becoming more organized, developing better friends, becoming an amazing “fill in the blank?”

When Things Are Going Haywire: Things at the house aren’t good. Your son or daughter is struggling. Family communication has ground to a halt. People are tense, upset. There might be drugs, alcohol, anger, school dysfunction, failure to launch, depression, anxiety, ADD, family conflict…. Your parental options feel limited: Conventional therapy isn’t working or isn’t enough. Sending your kid away to wilderness-based therapy can be heartbreaking and expensive. Perhaps your son or daughter has already been sent away, is coming home and you’re concerned things will go backwards to a very bad place.

I offer a third option. I work with kids and their families in their home in a positive, flexible, proactive way, emphasizing measurable, practical, and sustainable change, both short and long-term. My approach is relaxed, non-hierarchical, and results-oriented.

Whatever your situation, We can help.

We all have three directions from which to choose: backwards, in circles, or in the direction of our passion.  

Life coaching’s a partnership, that work hard to connect with our young clients and their families. Here’s how I work:

  • I can connect. As a result of my training, my experience, and my ability to connect, I’m able to truly hear young people, to empathize with them and accept them, wherever they are in their lives, and to understand what’s going on from their unique perspective.

  • I work with kids where they are: substance abuse, anxiety, etc. At this point in my career, I have dealt with most problems that young people can have and can quickly tell you whether life coaching would be helpful or not.

  • I can meet clients anywhere: in their homes, at the workplace, wherever it is most comfortable and convenient, although I prefer to initially meet in the home, as I learn more.

  • I will decode your kid. One of the hardest things about raising a son or daughter who’s struggling is parents’ frustration and lack of understanding about what’s going on with their child. I’m able to untangle the issues—decode them, if you will—that are confusing them and you. I will quickly decipher these dynamics and give you a comprehensive evaluation, including what you as parents can do to change things.

  • We come up with a plan. My evaluation results in a plan that includes a description of what the issues are, and then, together, we come up with a road map for the child and the family that will guide you all towards your goals, so true healing can take place.
  • A working contract is designed that includes a description of the issues to be addressed and initial steps needed to begin to address them.

  • There is forward movement quickly. In 99% of cases, I find an emotional point of entry, individual for each young person, which allows him or her to trust me. This trust provides a foundation of comfort and acceptance that allows your child to begin to move forward.

  • Your child will receive warm, consistent support so he or she can create a plan to discover his or her passions, talents, and strengths and to design a personal path to actualize that plan.

  • A process of inquiry and discovery is used to strengthen awareness and personal/family responsibility, and clients are provided with appropriate structure, feedback and support. Clients are able to be extremely purposeful and direct in working with me to co-create ideas and recommendations that stem from individual or family strengths.

  • The process is concentrated and efficient. Feedback is given directly and honestly.

  • The priority during this fluid process is always to meet the goals developed by the client or family. Individual clients and family members feel empowered and supported with sensible, challenging structure and support.

  • The emphasis is on sustainable, measurable, practical change, both short and long-term, and clients will be supported and held accountable to the steps to which they commit. All family members are held accountable to the plan, including parenting techniques and conflict resolution.

  • The objective is always to engender individual/family self-reliance and a true change in a client’s consciousness or family culture. The overarching goals are to restore your son or daughter to happiness and optimal functioning and relieve the pressures and stress caused by his or her distress. Coaching is not a miracle cure, but when the entire family is motivated, great things often happen.                               

Enjoy that immediate sense of relief (not dissimilar to a doctor’s visit with a confusing, scary medical concern) as you quickly begin to see the origins of your teen or 20-something’s despair and acting out and are given a cogent, workable plan for a solution.
