When dealing with a serious issue such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, addiction or marriage problems it’s not enough to just rely on family or friends. Family and friends may be able to provide advice and concern but, how do you know that advice is based on years of evidence or objective experience with others in your situation?
Can you trust that family and friends will keep your personal information private? Or that they always will have your best interests in mind?
You can trust that our professional counselors are licensed, objective and trained to protect your personal information. We keep your best interests in the forefront and practice using evidence base strategies. Our therapists have years of experience that includes graduate and post graduate education in a variety evidence-based disciplines and strategies.
