We provide assistance for these and other psychological issues through a variety of modalities.  We offer individual, couple, family and group counseling.  We also offer psycho educational workshops for people who would prefer a more brief and structured therapeutic learning experience.  Our psycho educational workshops focus on prevention of psychological problems and also often assist people who are affected by the mental health issues of a loved one.  This format offers evidence based tools to assist clients in being better informed about the nature of specific emotional difficulties.  It is also helpful for people who simply want the information that they need to deal with their problems more privately. Psycho educational workshop topics include:

 

  • Stress Management
  • Anger Management
  • Increasing Self-Esteem
